Key messages

  • The multi-stakeholder forum (MSF) employed a collective action approach to mobilize local communities in rehabilitating degraded land, and to build the capacities of local level actors to design and implement sustainable land-use practices.
  • Interventions on capacity building and stakeholder empowerment increased the MSF’s perceived effectiveness in enhancing sustainable land use.
  • The MSF’s perceived effectiveness was constrained by the limited representation and participation of women, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.
  • Gender inequity and a lack of alternative livelihood means for women and youth limited the implementation of the MSF’s outcomes.
