The Sahel has long been vulnerable to drought, impoverishment and food insecurity, as the droughts of the mid-
1970s, 1980s and 2005 show. Over the past 20 years, IIED has run a major programme of work in the Sahel that aims
not only to demonstrate the fragility of human and environmental systems, but also to show the remarkable energy
and innovation that local people can draw on to adapt and survive in an often hostile setting
