Africa Forests Research Initiative on Conservation and Development (AFRICAD)

We work in Africa’s forested regions on applied research to address poverty alleviation and sustainable livelihoods, social equity, and conflicts over natural resources. We aim to be a leader, in both the generation of knowledge through scientific inquiry and the communication of knowledge through teaching and capacity building, on poverty and forest-dependent livelihoods.
