ICRAF WCA mapThe World Agroforestry Centre’s West and Central Africa (WCA) regional office is based in Yaounde, Cameroon. This vast region covers approximately 1,200 million hectares, spanning 21 countries with a population of over 330 million people. 

It contains two main agro-ecological zones:

  • The dry Sahel zone, a semi-arid landscape stretching from Senegal to Chad
  • The Humid Tropics (HT), spreading along the coast and extending to the central part of Afric

Activities in the region focus on the roles that Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration plays in delivering agricultural systems that can improve productivity and livelihoods in the parklands of the Sahel. We also explore how improved planting materials are affecting the contributions of key tree crops to the GDP of humid countries while delivering benefits for climate change and income.
