Description: The entire existence of the nomadic pastoralists of the Sahel is based on the ability to move livestock from area to area to secure fresh grazing lands and water. Pressure by governments to change to a life of cultivation, years of drought, and the encroachment of the Sahara on the Sahel is endangering the lifestyle of a marginal group of people who have maintained this existence for over 800 years.
