A man crosses a bridge over the Hospital Wadi after a torrential downpour. The Sahel region is prone to flooding and severe erosion during the rainy season due to a lack of infrastructure and water management systems. Much needed rain water rapidly drains off the land into rivers limiting seepage into the water table and benefits to agricultural production.
