​What Yacouba did next…

 Since the movie The Man Who Stopped The Desert, a story about the amazing activities of Yacouba Sawadogo, a lot has happened in the life of the Burkinan farmer. Movie director Mark Dodd accompanied Mr Sawadogo on his journey to South Korea in 2011 for the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention to Combat Desertification Conference and then visited him on his farm in the Sahel region. Thanks to the great public attention and a new farmer training initiative, Yacouba Sawadogo is now able to teach his Zai techniques. In this video, Mr Sawadogo speaks about his future plans. “I think my work will progress even more… the people will take the Zai knowledge away with them today and spread it to the entire region, he says.”
