Description

This technical manual is written in French

  • The authors outline threats to forest regeneration in the Sahel, particularly with regard to agroforestry systems.
  • Better agroforestry practices that incorporate assisted natural regeneration would allow for more sustainable availability of firewood and productivity of agroforestry systems.
  • The authors strongly advocate for major changes in behavior and politics, including decentralization of authority over forest resources.
