Mist clears on China in African forests

The China-Africa Forest Governance Learning Platform has brought together forest governance players from China and eight African countries. It has been producing evidence on the nature of these engagements, linking actors from both sides, and identifying policy and research gaps.

This longread uses graphics and video footage to explain how the learning platform is improving Chinese investment in African forest land use and deepening engagement between the various stakeholders.

Spotlight on... Decentralising Climate Funds

Decentralising Climate Funds (DCF) supports communities in Senegal and Mali to become more resilient to climate change through access to locally-controlled adaptation funds. It is part of the UK government-funded BRACED programme and is implemented by the Near East Foundation (NEF), Innovation, Environnement et Développement en Afrique (IED Afrique) and IIED. 

Through the DCF project, NEF, IED Afrique and IIED work with communities in Senegal and Mali to establish frameworks to manage climate adaptation funds (CAF) that support local investments in resilience. Local governments are given discretionary authority over CAFs which finance community investments. The investments are selected through participatory processes, and take account of the concerns of the most vulnerable groups. Three funds with a value of £500,000 have been created in each selected region of Mali and Senegal, to be distributed among targeted communities.  

Findings from the DCF project will be presented at CBA11 (register to attend below).

New publications this month

India’s peri-urban frontier: rural-urban transformations and food security
In India, many people living on the outskirts of cities, or peri-urban areas, face poverty, increasing marginalisation and food insecurity. Yet peri-urban agriculture could be a major contributor to poverty alleviation and food security.

India’s peri-urban frontier: rural-urban transformations and food security examines the need to improve nutrition through a more holistic, food security-based perspective. It discusses examples of specific policies and programmes and considers knowledge gaps, challenges, and mechanisms that might help facilitate pro-poor food security developments.
Africa’s farmland in changing hands: A review of literature and case studies from sub-Saharan Africa
Africa’s farmland in changing hands: A review of literature and case studies from sub-Saharan Africa summarises findings from a research project – including case studies in Ghana, Senegal, Mozambique, and Uganda – to address three main questions:
How is land access changing in rural Africa, and what are the major drivers of change? How are these changes affecting rural livelihoods? What are the implications of these changes for development policy and practice?
Reconciling forest conservation with food production in sub-Saharan Africa: case studies from Ethiopia, Ghana and Tanzania
Forest cover in sub-Saharan Africa declined by nearly 10 per cent between 2000 and 2010. Of this loss, 75 per cent was caused by the conversion of forest to agriculture, largely for food production. 

Reconciling forest conservation with food production in sub-Saharan Africa examines the trade-offs between conserving forests and increasing food production. It explores how these trade-offs might be better managed through informed choices about where and how to intensify agriculture, and which areas of natural forest to conserve and which to lose.
