The southern arid fringe of the Sahara Desert, called the Sahel, is progressively becoming less productive through a systematic deterioration of the environment. Population increases and technological advances have encouraged ecological degradation through man's normal activities for survival. The degradation process has been referred to as desertification, desertization, desert encroachment, and desert creep.
