Description

This article is written in French

  • The authors investigated the amount of wood villagers received from using assisted natural regeneration (ANR) techniques as opposed to wood that they bought.
  • They found that in the region of Magaria, Niger, over 90% of households' wood needs were fulfilled by wood grown using ANR alone.
  • The authors provide several examples of successful agroforestry parks in the region.
  • They conclude by arguing that scaling up ANR will have positive impacts for agroforestry parks and that women especially should be sensitized to the benefits of ANR for agroforestry.
