2015 (French)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This booklet presents a popular sience summary of research conducted in six villages in Northern Burkina Faso 2011-2012 within the research project "Adapting to changing climate in drylands: The re-greening in Sahel as a potential success case". The booklet is intended for the participants in the research and local administrations in Burkina Faso, and has been distributed and presented there in January 2016. The booklet presents the landscape units - social-ecological patches - identified in the villages, and the set of ecosystem services generated in each social-ecological patch. It also presents the benefits people obtain from the different ecosystem services. The booklet further presents mapping of the social-ecological patches at provincial scale, as well as on-going mapping of how the distribution of patches have changed over time (since 1950) in the villages. The second part of the booklet presents results from a vegetation inventory and soil sampling in four of the villages.
