Abstract:This study describes and analyzes the social and ecological destruction of the 1968-74 Sahel drought and famine. It traces the history of this disaster to the impact of French colonial government policy on the fragile ecology of the region and the effects of food and export regulations on agriculture and on the social structure and interrelationships of the tribes.
