The Sahel is currently the focus of all the world’s most serious problems: accelerated degradation of land against a backdrop of record population growth, maximum insecurity, failed states, etc. The human toll is appalling. The human toll is frightening: 4.3 million people need humanitarian assistance in the region, and terrorism has claimed more than 4,000 victims in 2019.
“War in Mali, behind the scenes of a spiral” tells the story of an explosive chain of Touareg independence struggles, drug trafficking, corruption and jihad, against a backdrop of cracked ochre desert earth and a civil society that is waking up and trying to change things.
