1) Geology / climate; there are deserts in China and Australia, and many other parts of the world [Arizona]
2) North Africa used to be much greener - it supplied a lot of corn to Ancient Rome. A lot of the loss was cause by - - goats ! they eat anything, so will tear up plants which are holding the soil in ; without those plants the rain washes the soil away [soil erosion]

Maybe it is sent by God - is it a punishment for something ?
