WMG partners with several communities in Burkina Faso, West Africa. This video highlights some of work there using gabions - a simple practice used to prevent erosion and capture water off the landscape. In 2012 we hosted a workshop to train farmers how to manufacture gabion baskets so that they could restore their watershed and generate income by selling the gabion baskets to other local farmers.
