Brazil is hosting the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development that analyzes Earth's economic and environmental health. The North-East of Brazil is the most densely populated semi-arid region in the world. Low, erratic rainfall and cyclic droughts make farming difficult. For generations, farmers have resorted to excessive use of chemicals and slash and burn agriculture, stripping the soil of nutrients. These three stories show different ways farmers can make a living from the land while conserving the environment.
