Pour que la recherche ait un impact, la science a besoin de canaux de communication clairs pour aller droit au but. Le CIFOR-ICRAF est aussi passionné par le partage de ses connaissances que par leur production.
Para que la investigación pueda generar algún impacto, los conocimientos científicos requieren de canales de comunicación claros. En CIFOR-ICRAF, compartir nuestros conocimientos nos apasiona tanto como generarlos.
Ilmu pengetahuan membutuhkan saluran komunikasi yang jelas untuk mencapai tujuan, jika ingin dampaknya terlihat. CIFOR-ICRAF sangat bersemangat untuk berbagi pengetahuan sembari menghasilkan pengetahuan itu sendiri.
CIFOR–ICRAF achieves science-driven impact. We conduct innovative research, strengthen
partners’ capacity and actively engage in dialogue with all stakeholders, bringing the latest insights on
forests, trees, landscapes and people to global decision making.
CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests,
landscapes, people and the planet.
We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and
restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short,
improving people’s lives.
Unlocking large-scale land restoration practices, approaches, and benefits in Sub-Saharan Africa
Regreening Africa Roundtable
06 Sep 2022, 13:00 - 17:00 PM, EAT, Virtual and Live Streaming
This interactive round table brings together partners of the Regreening Africa project to share experiences and lessons learned during its implementation from 2017 to date. The project focus is on integration of trees into crop and communal areas along with complementary restoration practices and approaches to enhance inclusion, value chains, policy, and local governance. Regreening Africa aims to restore 1 million hectares of degraded land across eight countries in Africa.

Session 1: Scaling out context-based practices
What land restoration practices will work where and how can we encourage widespread uptake? Highlighting the Regreening Africa practices as well as the models used to promote them.
Cases to be presented include enclosures in Ethiopia, tree nursery cooperatives and farmer trainers in Rwanda, and Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) in Senegal.
Presentation on preliminary results on adoption and impact of the programme presented by the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning team.
Session 2: Regreening Africa science-practice-policy partnership
Integrating data from science and practical experience can enhance planning, implementation, and the policy environment. This session outline of the Regreening Africa partnership model where community, government, scientists, and development partners worked together in the Regreening Africa project.
An illustration of how scientific data is integrated into development through the Land Degradation Surveillance Framework, mapping of land health, citizen-engaged App, and decision dashboard.
The Northern Restoration Initiative in Ghana and how it brings together practitioners, community, private sector, and government with data.
Kenya’s Landscape Restoration Movement and how it was built.
Integrating data from science and practice for adaptive management. The role of Joint Reflective Learning Missions.
Session 3: Economic and policy incentives
For land restoration and sustainable land management initatives to succeed, communities must see the benefits. In this session we explore two examples of value chains and cases of where engagement with policymakers has seen uptake of restoration and sustainable land management practices.
Regreening Africa’s approach to value chains.
Case from the avocado value chain in Kenya.
Case of the shea value chain in Mali.
Policy engagement approach in Regreening Africa. Case of the FMNR decree in Niger.
Case of integrating FMNR in Somaliland and Puntland state policies.
Discussion on the key takeaways from Regreening Africa and how they can inform future investments
The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and World Agroforestry (ICRAF) envision a more equitable world where trees in all landscapes, from drylands to the humid tropics, enhance the environment and well-being for all. CIFOR and ICRAF are CGIAR Research Centers.
