The deterioration of the rural landscape in the Sahel region in general has worsened in the last decades, endangering local populations. • The creation of Sahelian bocage, or live fence perimeters, in this rural landscape is a way to remedy the problems linked to extensive agriculture and degradation of natural capital. • The concept is based on the creation of bocage perimeters in a mixed regime for enhancing agricultural productivity, increasing fodder and fuel wood availability. • The tree-based farming technique adopted in the Sahel helps farmers cope with climate change.
