Henri Kouakou walks at his cashew plantation in Bondoukou
Henri Kouakou walks at his cashew plantation in Bondoukou June 20, 2014.
Forty years ago, Kouakou was struggling to support his family farming a small plot outside Bondoukou, a dusty town in northeastern Ivory Coast, when he first learned that money did, in fact, grow on trees -- cashew trees. By his own reckoning, Kouakou, among the earliest pioneers of the Ivorian cashew sector, is nearly 100 years old. He has seen the nuts, initially planted in the 1970s to combat desertification, emerge as an important cash crop for the West African nation's impoverished north. Picture taken June 20, 2014.

Protesters sit behind a police line outside a government office in central Beijing October 20, 2008. Hundreds of people in Beijing argued with police outside a government office on Monday, demanding help recovering money from a get-rich-quick scheme involving tree plantations to stem desertification. More than 30,000 investors, mostly retirees, sunk over a billion yuan into a company's tree-planting scheme in the arid northern region of Inner Mongolia, lured by promises of quadrupled returns within eight years.

A dried up river filled with sand winds its way across the desert near Gos Beida in eastern Chad June 5, 2008. Africa's Sahel region suffers from desertification as fertile land gives way to sandy expanses creeping ever southward, compounding problems in a region already affected by wars and rebellions, many of them driven by competition for scant resources.

A general view shows the desertification transformation project in Kubuqi Desert on the outskirts of Dalate county in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region July 11, 2007. There is 320,000 square km of land threatened by desertification in China, a State Forestry Administration (SFA) official said. "From 2001 to 2004, the area of sandy land shrank by 1,283 square km each year, but desertification is still menacing some parts of China," Wang Xinjian, deputy director of the SFA's Desertification Prevention Center, said at a seminar held in Shanghai on curbing desertification, according to Xinhua News Agency.
