Who we are

CIFOR, with support from Sida, has established a team of researchers and partners working on the dry forests of Africa. CIFOR uses a collaborative approach to working with national research institutes, forest departments, universities, NGOs and communities. Much of the development type activities are done by partners while CIFOR plays a lead role in overall coordination and in carrying out the action research components on decentralisation, joint forest management and collective action. The CIFOR dry forest team is based in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia and Zambia.
