Ndem

Ndem

Ndem is a community in the inner country of the ‘Bassin Arachidier’ of Senegal, the Peanut Growing basin of the Sahel region http://www.ndem.info/ . The area suffered rapid desertification and soil loss due to the climatic changes combined with the extensive monoculture of peanut that was once introduced by the French for export to its other territories. The rapid exodus reached its peak with the drought conditions in the 1980s that hit most of West Africa.

Mbame

Mbame

The project started when they were looking around and discovered that the mangrove were disappearing so they went to the elders to ask what caused that, and if was a natural or human cause. The answer they got was that it was mainly a human impact. The people were cutting the mangrove for fuel and building which also read the high salination of their land.
