Turning the tide on desertification in Africa

The Forestry Department, in close collaboration with OCE, decided to produce a video feature on the department's very successful Acacia pilot project in order to give visibility to the important role that such rehabilitation of degraded land initiatives through tree planting can play in combating desertification and contributing to food security. The release of the 8 minute video to the media was timed to coincide with the First Africa Dry lands week organized with over 17 partners, in Senegal on 10-17 June and is now being posted through FAO's social media channels which play an important role in disseminating important messages.
