African Forest Forum

Project completed

Create capacities of stakeholders to strengthen the role of Africa’s forests and trees to adapt to climate change and mitigate its adverse effects in various landscapes in ways that will enhance livelihoods, sustain biodiversity and improve the quality of the environment. This will be achieved through programmatic and institutional strengthening of the African Forest Forum in ways that foster an independent and objective analysis of related issues, promote advocacy and offer advice on all relevant policy and technical issues in forests and climate change.
