    La transformation agricole en Afrique: le rôle des ressources naturelles
    2017
    Also available in:

    The present edition of Nature & Faune journal emphasizes the role of natural renewable resources within the framework of Africa’s agricultural transformation. Central to the transformation agenda is achieving greater prosperity which can improve peoples's lives and livelihoods. These improvements of lives and livelihoods cover their economic well-being; their environment; socio‐cultural and political sphere of influence. The conditions for modernizing Africa’s agriculture entail transforming not only production processes but also the products. This issue of the Journal highlights the unique features of Africa’s agriculture, including (i) the urgent need for improving productivity; (ii) the importance of the agricultural sector in Africa’s economies in terms of employment; and (iii) the climate-resilient opportunities within agriculture to cope with climate change challenges. It draws attention to the fact that the agriculture sector offers possibilities for increased productivity while also adapting to and mitigating climate change thus safeguarding also future production.

    Creating a forest landscape restoration movement in Africa: a call to heal planet Earth
    2018
    Also available in:

    This edition of Nature & Faune journal explores the science and innovations (technical, social and policy) that can support the achievement of the African dream of restoring 100 million hectares of its degraded land. Articles in this edition share experiences on challenges, opportunities and successful restoration, including farmer managed natural regeneration, improved management of smallholder woodlots, reforestation, evergreen agriculture with intercropped trees, and associated sustainable land management practices such as water harvesting and erosion control. Africa’s Great Green Wall is presented in this edition as a transformative model for rural communities’ sustainable development. In particular the lessons learned from the “Action Against Desertification” programme funded by the European Union and implemented by FAO with partner countries and organizations, are discussed, paving a way towards the implementation of African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative. Initiatives to address land degradation and desertification trends in Africa, promote sustainable land management, and restoration of degraded forests and landscapes include Africa’s Great Green Wall initiative, and 2016’s African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative – AFR100. Most of the articles dwelt on how efforts to this end are being pursued.

    Also available in:

    This edition of Nature & Faune journal explores the intricacies of sustainable pastoralism and rangeland management in Africa. It contains articles on the realities of livestock production in Africa, including: extensive rangeland conditions; rangeland ecosystems and sustainability; wildlife benefits and conflicts in pastoral systems; land tenure systems in pastoral settings, forest feed for livestock; animal disease control; agro-silvo-pastoralism; and impact of livestock on water and soil degr adation. This lends support to the initiative of encouraging the United Nations to designate 2020 the International Year of Rangelands and Pastoralists.
