The GFIS Africa Synthesis initiative on “Rehabilitation of Degraded Lands in Sub-Saharan Africa” was therefore initiated in an effort to bring together African scientists working on tropical forests, woodlands and allied natural resources through networking to review and appraise existing information (both published and grey) and chart the way forward on sustainable management of the resources as a further contribution to the GFIS Africa project. Specifically, the synthesis has an emphasis on case studies in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to demonstrate what has already been done in the area of rehabilitation of degraded lands and to identify what are the gaps with respect to policy, management and research.
