The southern frontier of the Sahel desert arcs across southern Mauritania, north and western Senegal, parts of northern and western Mali, the northern region of Burkina Faso and then eastward. Throughout this region, desertification has advanced steadily since the mid-twentieth century, taking away arable land, and threatening the agricultural livelihoods of small producers in Burkina Faso. However along the edge of this southern “semi-desert,” small family farms which are passed down from generation to generation still grow cereals such as millet and sorghum.
