Africa possesses an enormous diversity of forest ecosystems – from Mali to South Africa – all of which are at risk of degradation. The impacts are both local (ecological and social) and global as they affect climate change and hasten the loss of biodiversity. This book analyses the root causes of these threats and recounts the struggles by local people to protect and use these forests adequately.
