January 26, 2015 Burkina Faso: Hopes for New Beginnings
"Over the next year, the transition away from the Compaoré era [in
Burkina Faso] will be full of uncertainties. The opposition leaders
are focused on new elections, which they clearly hope to win.

conditions, root out corruption, reform state institutions, and
bring to justice the worst criminals of the ancien régime." - Ernest
Sep 3, 2007 Sahel: Beyond Any Drought
"People blame locusts, drought and high food prices for the crisis

people there are chronically vulnerable. Two years later, they
still are." - Vanessa Rubin, CARE International UK
