A film on the approach to ‘built environment’ adopted by Timbaktu.

The film explores Timbaktu’s experiment, which sat a meeting point between forests, agriculture and the built environment. It narrates how a small group of development activists, committed to developmental and ecological regeneration, found ways to heal and regenerate a piece of dry, degraded land, and create an agro forest habitat. Protecting the land, revitalising natural resources and traditional genetic base were the key elements involved.
