    Can anyone help out with an English translation of "à cheval" in the following?

    Ainsi, suivant les travaux du Club du Sahel et de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (OECD 2009), le potentiel de développement du coton en Afrique de l’Ouest est appréhendé à l’échelle transfrontalière des bassins de production, à cheval entre la Côte d’Ivoire, le Mali et le Burkina Faso, ou entre le Cameroun, la République Centrafricaine et le Tchad.

    Thanks in advance!

    It means astride/straddling.
