6 – The "Great Green Wall"

The Community of Sahelo-Saharan States launched a project of global importance to re-vegetate a significant part of sub-Saharan Africa in order to fight against desertification and to improve the environmental, economic and social conditions for the resident population (www.grandemurailleverte.org).

The Great Green Wall will be a belt of multi-species vegetation, 15km wide from Dakar to Djibouti over approximately 7000 km. Each country involved will have to set aside a belt of forest of 15km in the Sahelian area.

The GGW initiative’s overall objectives are to: (i) contribute to fighting against the spread of the desert (ii) develop the deteriorated areas of the Sahel to manage sustainable natural resources and (iii) fight against poverty.

The realisation of the GGW is an important regional project that will globally affect the environmental as well as the social, economic and cultural aspects of sustainable development. This is why the members and partners of the chair wanted to support this project and to participate in the yearly field campaigns generally organized in August.
