Farmer led landscape restoration offers multiple benefits for smallholders and women in Burkina Faso
- Published on
In Burkina Faso, many smallholder farmers rely on tree-based landscapes to deliver vital provisions such as food and nutrition, and act as safety nets at times of crisis. These farmers are crucial in the effort to tackle land degradation in the Sahel.
Their efforts provide a useful restoration model for a region grappling with socioeconomic changes characterized by a rapid loss of trees, savannah woodlands and biodiversity. In the arid and semi-arid areas of Africa, which loses 2.8 million hectares of forests annually, the livelihoods of many people are increasingly imperiled by these landscape changes.
