Description: “For environmental and political reasons, the African Sahel is one of the most challenging places in the world to live. Within this context, Dr. Katie Baird will discuss the obstacles to economic development in a Sahelian village where she lived in the 1980s. Her experiences in the village of Cive, Mauritania, underscore the particular ways that Sahelian communities today remain especially vulnerable to environmental change, political turmoil, and violence.”
