CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

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.

Empowering refugees and host communities to protect Cameroon’s forests

CIFOR’s EU-funded GML project supports sustainable woodfuel production in Cameroon’s East Region. Working together with refugees from the Central African Republic and host communities, the project is developing agroforestry systems with native food trees to increase local tree cover and support nutritious diets, as well as fast-growing species that can be used for fuel; holding consultation forums to negotiate land-use norms and minimize conflict; and promoting the use of energy efficient stoves that use less wood.
