Large-scale regreening in Niger: lessons for policy and practice. Included in Restoring African Drylands

Abstract

Unless countries can manage to mobilize millions of land users to invest their scarce resources in protecting regenerating trees, the battle against land degradation cannot be won. These experiences from Niger show that hundreds of thousands of smallholder farm families have substantially increased tree cover on their farm land by investing in the management of on-farm trees. This has improved their production systems and their livelihoods. There is no reason to believe that similar success cannot be achieved in many more countries throughout African drylands and sub-humid area. The goal is to restore millions more hectares of degraded land by means of productive and resilient
farming systems.
