Anti-desertification plantations take the shape of a net of squares in the Tengeli desert, in Ningxia Province, China, on May 8, 2007. China is the only place in the world where desert is shrinking, not expanding, thanks to active anti-desertification campaigns. Photographer: Lucas Schifres/Pictobank
