In the West Sahel Region, particularly in Burkina Faso (former Alto Volta), Mali and Niger local cultivation techniques used by farmers for centuries have been adapted to the new climate conditions. Sahelian farmers dig holes called Zai with dimensions varying with the type of soil. Pits are dug during the dry season from November until May and the number of Zai pits per hectare varies from 12,000 to 25,000.(The number of zai per hectare and their dimensions determine how much water they harvest. The bigger the number and the smaller their size, the less water they each harvest.) After digging the pits, composted organic matter is added and after the first rainfall, the matter is covered with a thin layer of soil and the seeds placed in the middle of the pit.

Climate Impacts Threaten to Reverse Two Decades of Progress in Reducing Global Poverty The gains in poverty reduction made in the past 20 years could be halted or reversed by climate change impacts, according to the United Nations Development Programme 2013 Human Development Report, The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World . The report, released March 14, calculates that the share of the world's people living in extreme poverty fell from 43 percent in 1990 to 22 percent in 2008. Gains were made in 40 developing countries, including 500 million people in China alone.
