Rolling back the desert in Senegal

In Senegal, where farming employs 70% of the population, desertification and land erosion have led to food insecurity. This video shows how researchers supported by the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa program worked with farmers to identify and implement farming strategies that protect against further desertification and improve yields under these new conditions.

Produced by A24 Media, this is part of a series of six videos on research supported by CCAA.

The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa research and capacity development program (2006-2012) was a joint initiative of Canada’s International Development Research Centre and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID).
