This latest short video from 1080 Films updates the story of Yacouba Sawadogo, ‘the man who stopped the desert’. The director, Mark Dodd, filmed Yacouba on his visit to South Korea in 2011 for the UN Convention to Combat Desertification conference. Then in July 2012 we revisited Yacouba on his farm . Thanks to a new farmer training initiative funded by donations, Yacouba is now able to visit many more villages in his region to spread his Zai techniques.
