NINGXIA PROVINCE, CHINA - May 08: 70-year old farmer Qi Shenglian gets water from a deep well dug in the ground of what used to be the Tengeli desert on May 8, 2007 in Ningxia Province, China. China is the only place in the world where desert is shrinking, not expanding, thanks to active anti-desertification campaigns. (Photo by Lucas Schifres/Getty Images)
