A girl carries a bucket of water from a community well in the village of Ndiawagne Fall in Kebemer, Senegal, on Friday, November 5, 2021. The region is on one end of a project called the Great Green Wall that was once envisioned as a way for Africa to fight climate change.

Filao trees, planted to slow coastal erosion along the Atlantic Ocean, line the beach in Lompoul village near Kebemer, Senegal, on Friday, November 5, 2021. The trees form a curtain that protects the beginning of the Great Green Wall, a project that began in 2007 with a vision for the trees to extend like a belt across the vast Sahel region, from Senegal in the west to Djibouti in the east, by 2030. But as temperatures rose and rainfall diminished, millions of the planted trees died. (Photo by Leo Correa/AP Photo)

Ibrahima Fall collects limes from his orchard in the village of Ndiawagne Fall in Kebemer, Senegal, on Friday, November 5, 2021. The citrus crop provides a haven from the heat and sand that surround it. Outside the low village walls, winds whip sand into the air, inviting desertification, a process that wrings the life out of fertile soil and changes it into desert, often because of drought or deforestation.

Dogs and mushers train on the beach of Muizenberg, in the late afternoon not to tire the huskies, on Muizenberg beach in Cape Town on November 13, 2021. Locals and holiday makers alike are stunned to see the barking teams of huskies mushing along the white beach at up to 25 km/h (15 m/h) with a sled at the rear. It's the brainchild of husky lover Sam Gunter, 43, who realised the breed, though very popular locally, were not getting the amount of exercise they needed.
