Research Themes

Members of AFRICAD pursue research in the forested environments of Africa to support knowledge generation and communication under four main themes: Dynamics of Human Health in Forest Environments; Effectiveness of Conservation and Development; Livelihoods and Economic Development; and Equity, Social Justice, and Conflict. Within these themes, we maintain a consistent focus on poverty and inequality, rights and tenure over resources, the dynamics of climate change, and good governance.
