Sobé and other villages in the Mali River Niger Inner Delta are threatened by the desert’s sand which is coming also in the Debo Lake. Communities are forced to rebuild their homes every two years to avoid burial by sand dunes.
To address this scourge, Wetlands International works in consortium with other partners like Care International and the Malian government in the delta. An action plan was developed with the participation of communities to undertake dune stabilization.
