Mali, till recently, was faced by a strange dilemma - the desert was on the verge of encroaching into the delta formed by two rivers - Niger and Bani. This video shows how, with a little aid from the United Nations and hard work of the local people, water was brought in from river Niger through pipes and fed into lakes around the delta to revive the ecological balance.
