Drudgery wood Burkina faso

Author 'Clericus' (Id 112804 ) : Every day the forest walk on the heads of peasant women. Imagine a large cube (1m3). It is 900 million cubic of this size it will take in 2010 to cover the needs for firewood. It is the equivalent of 25 times around the earth. Twice the distance from the Earth to the moon! All wood, all that smoke for meals. Sadly I think of Ronsard (1524) ... Listen logger, stop arm a little. This is not a timber that you throw it down. Do not you see the blood which drip force ... .. Sacrilege murderer ... Farewell, old forest, farewell holy heads.

this is a beautiful photo colorful, dynamic, and teaching on the way of life in african villages, a way of life that was ours before we can use something other than wood for heating and cooking. Here it seems that they carry the little wood, therefore, fallen to the ground in a natural way. Deforestation is serious but is not the only result of this practice, unfortunately. to you for the action in which you are engaged.

Let the light. Certainly it is a mania in Africa to walk to the Indian girl (even the elephants are lined up!). This show is millennium (on trails) to the difference in campaigns that did not exist and colored cotton ... Still not for elephants. For Club Med, I want a sarong like this: 18:.

I love your humor. Med then. So I will not this Faso Dan Fani (the name box that weaves and patterns chosen loincloths) Do you know that each campaign in his name, for example: "My husband is able to" well-starched damask luxury . Other is "I love you", "do not leave me" or "come back to me." Everyone knows this unspoken language of tissues. The finest are woven in Holland they are very expensive. We say that these are tissue "wax" (English = wax) The measure is English. A piece of cloth is sold and is measured in yards ... Even in Francophone Africa metric is ignored. So goes the life of fabrics.

Wax I know. Most wore Kinoise Effie's "brave President Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku wa Gwendu Bazanga" (translation = downright obscene) after they had their generosity. One way to practice resistance?

Callipyges, voluptuous shapes they have there, the surface to display their inner convictions ... But I'm not really sure, they use the place for resistance. Got to laugh, is not it.

Thank you to Hunter Hiedra and time of your comments, I do not have your talent to express my feelings after reading the NTRO: 20:. You did it for me: 18:. The fact remains that this picture is very beautiful and very touching.

Thank you for this jaunty illustrated with rustic image a major problem in the Sahelian countries. What do rich countries, major producers of carbon dioxide for their massive airdrop of butane gas cylinders, pre-cooked rice ... Or poems by Ronsard! I confess to not having quite follow the relationship between the millions of cubic and round the earth. But I am concerned to discover that the moon moves away at high speed of the Earth and is already at 550. 000 km, at least in Burkina Faso.

Do not worry. : 7: Let me explain? : 15:. Deforestation = 900 million m3. Or 900. 000 km3. Around the earth is *- 40. 000 km. So: 900mille / 40mille = round to 25 for better storage. In short, you take your 900 million cubic (1x1x1m) ... You put all these cubic butt. You get and you make 25 times around the earth. Ditto for the distance from Earth to the Moon. 900millions 900mille mm3 = km / (distance earth moon) *- 385mille km = 2 (I rounded to 2 to worry facilitate memorization) That put together these cubes also represent the equivalent round by default this time, 2 times the distance from the Earth to the moon.

Thank you for the shot of anxiety. My mental arithmetic was not running quite round. But 900 million cubic meters, this seems huge for Burkina Faso, unless it is consumption African and even global fuelwood. What is being done locally to reduce it? Much I love your photos camped whose comments are discovering, beyond the image, a human aspect that interests and often provocative.

I do not care even if after a careful reading of your comment I costed a little difficult to follow you when you put equal "900 million cubic (1x1x1m)" and "900millions mm3 = 900mille km / ". M3 mm3 and is seems to me there, very different units Reminder: 1m3 = OOO OOOcm3 1000dm3 = 1 = 1 billion mm3 What makes for "900 million cubic (1x1x1m)" 900 000 000 000 of ... Mm3! Find the error: I was never very good at math so she can be mine. Anyway, where it is, there is no comparison between deforestation resulting from the cooking wood in poor families and those resulting from industrial Actitis the timber industry or the desire to exploit new areas to grow to meet the needs that we can discuss the opportunity.

This is the world consumption. What we do here? "There is a project for 10 years (it works) which is to transfer ownership of the forest to the villagers if they operated according to specific criteria in respect of allowances that should not put forest at risk. The villagers who benefit from revenues from timber sales are the first to manage and maintain. The sale is not left to chance. The villagers formed a coop to fix the selling price (3500francs the stere-2730F which is 4 euros, for the woodcutter) The rest is "equally divided" between the body of the village and the coop (to replant a tree for a felled tree) It is interesting to note that the money gained is attracting new vocations that avoid exile to the cities. The government struck heavy taxes on timber cut haphazardly. In case of seizure of timber and materials used in the illicit transport: 50% to 50% for the brigade base

Disappointed. You see that I by mistake: 13: put a small "m" in which too has become the m3 mm3. The subject (I was hoping a lot better from you a useless battle of zeros). To err is human ... Provided that the gum does not wear out faster than the pen. I draw a line.

"This is the world consumption." This time I follow you. The reading I had done suggested that the data related to the firewood. As for the rest of your explanation of the process in which you participate applaud with both hands: teach these villagers to be involved and provide the assistance necessary for the future is certainly the most intelligent or especially when it is long term.

I am allowed to link one of my pictures to yours: like her, she talks about that lifestyle that we had the opportunity to approach. I love yours as it translates very well into the lives of these people. Let us, however, not to condemn too quickly for people who have too often for concern: trying to survive. In effect what fuels can have in order to cooking their food except the coal ... Wood and ... Wood? Nor should we forget that the deforestation is not the most important result of this practice when they can not escape.

If I just look at that picture without knowing anything about the history of these women, I see beautiful green, a red road, brown, gray, blue and a mixture of different colored clothes ... In short, all these colors, too cool! 1:

A very pretty picture of those women who after that will light the fire to make the meal, a diagonal and beautiful colors, like a lot.

Thank you for your encouragement. The timber trade is a perfectly organized and lucrative. For example, these four women is about 20 kilometers on foot to transport their wood in town. "Old" cut wood in the bush. The women and girls and robust long-suffering transport these loads over 30 pounds on the head. Arrivals in the city are the children (especially girls) who sell the wood in small piles, retail. As forests disappear ... That we must take PHOTO ... Since they exist soon in the pages of textbooks.
