The European Tropical Forest Research Network and Tropenbos International have published a volume of articles on ‘Restoring African Drylands’ (December 2020) in ETFRN News 60, edited by Nick Pasiecznik and Chris Reij.
This issue focuses on dryland restoration in the Sahel and the Greater Horn of Africa where levels of poverty, land degradation and out-migration are acute. It collates 36 articles from more than 100 contributors, including some long-term analyses of remarkable increases in tree cover and improved agricultural yields over large areas of the Western Sahel never published before, landscape restoration in Ethiopia, and examples from many other countries.
This edition of ETFRN News 60 is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of the Netherlands. It is co-published by The European Tropical Forest Research Network and Tropenbos International.
