Sylvie Gourlet-Fleury and Jean-Louis Doucet: “The Central African forests aren’t all the same”

Tag
Forêts camerounaises
Today, forestry management faces multiple challenges in terms of adapting to climate change, biodiversity preservation and sustainable forestry exploitation. If the development plan is the primary answer for sustainable management of the forests, the countries of Central Africa face a major challenge: renewal of stocks of the species exploited. For Jean-Louis Doucet, Professor at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and Sylvie Gourlet-Fleury, researcher at Cirad, reinforcing the sustainability of exploitation as part of forestry development is essential. On World Forest Day, they tell us about their work as part of the DynAfFor and P3FAC projects, supported by the FFEM, and their resulting recommendations for better management of the Central African forests.
