General figures not specific to Africa: The desert gains nearly 6 million hectares per year, and this advance covers sixty countries, which include a billion people. The problem is especially acute in countries such as China (Gobi Desert), Brazil (Nordeste), Australia, Chile (Atacama), Pakistan, etc. Africa is the continent with the largest continental tropical deserts (Sahara, Namib, Kalahari, Eastern Ogaden, the Horn of Africa) where the recent developments of the drought have been most severe, causing the displacement of at least 10 million 'environmental refugees' in 1985, mostly in the semi arid Sahel (extending from Senegal to Ethiopia).
