National Geographic Video: Africa Series: Land of Sun-Desert Odyssey: The Sahara is the largest desert on the planet – almost as big as the United States – with the highest recorded temperature in the world of 136� Fahrenheit. This vast sea of sand and volcanic rock is one of the most inhospitable places on earth. Adam Illius, a nine-year old boy from the Tuareg village of Timia in Niger is about to begin a journey that will change his life. He is about to walk into the heart of the desert with his family’s caravan of camels, across some of the cruelest terrain in search of a prize once said to be as valuable as gold. The trip will be fraught with peril: scorpions, snakes, heat stroke, and dehydration. A fall or a kick from an angry camel could prove fatal. Even reaching the salt mines will not guarantee success.

African Rivers

African Rivers Network: Formed in 2003, the African Rivers Network is comprised of dam affected communities and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working on water and energy issues from over 20 African countries, with a shared aim of working towards social justice in the arena of large dams and their alternatives, and through working together to influence decision-making, amplifying community voices and rights. It comes at a time when Africa is witnessing an unprecedented pace of proposals for large dams. Increasing demand for dams pose enormous pressure on Africa’s natural resources, water in particular. ARN is committed to promoting dialogue and people-centred decision-making on dams and other large infrastructure development in Africa. Human rights, community acceptance of decisions, and reparations for outstanding social injustices should be the cornerstone for any future dam development in Africa.
