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.
