Burkina Faso. The Power of "Resilience".
In Burkina Faso, an African country considered one of the poorest on the planet, climate change has speeded up the process of desertification of the territory in entire districts. Forcing those who lived there to migrate to neighboring states or to Europe. Today many projects try to make this area cultivable again.
In Burkina Faso, an African country considered one of the poorest on the planet, desertification, amplified by global climate change, has made entire districts unusable for agriculture. Forcing those who lived there to migrate to neighboring states or to Europe. Some projects implemented by international and local NGOs oppose them using traditional farming techniques. By applying a principle of "resilience" to these disastrous changes in the environment, numerous projects aiming to make the desertified areas fertile again, allowing local communities to cultivate them again. In this way also trying to limit the phenomenon of "environmental migration". In other areas of the country climate change has made the duration and intensity of precipitation unpredictable, making it often disastrous and lethal for subsistence farming at least as much as water scarcity.
