Action Against Desertification

People at the heart of land restoration

Land restoration in northern Niger is making degraded areas productive again, providing economic opportunities in a region where migration has become a tradition. Now, under FAO’s Action Against Desertification programme, these efforts are being expanded to six African countries. This success shows that land degradation around the Sahara is not yet irreversible.
