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.

What do forests have to do with food?

What can you cook from parkia seeds and baobab leaves? Scientists from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) are looking into how people use forest foods in five sites in Africa — in Burkina Faso, Zambia, Uganda, Ethiopia and Cameroon. Their findings are not only uncovering some delicious recipes, but deepening our understanding of the connections between landscapes, food security and nutrition.
