Restoring lives and landscapes

Restoring lives and landscapes

This booklet tells the story of a project that has had a profound influence on the management of four large forest areas in Guinea. The Landscape Management for improved Livelihoods (LAMIL) project has also done much to improve the welfare of local people. Indeed, the two – better forest management and improved livelihoods – are inextricably linked. The World Agroforestry Centre, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and their partners in the LAMIL project have developed a system of co-management, involving local communities and government agencies, which is generating considerable interest in Guinea and throughout the region
