West and Central Africa

The vast majority of Africa’s tropical moist and tropical rainforests exist in West and Central Africa. Western and Central Africa alone accounts for about 8% of all forests in the world, and 25% of global tropical forests. However, the region is fast losing its forest resources through unsustainable land use practices.

The Partnerships for Forests programme aims to reverse this trend in Western and Central Africa by leveraging private sector investment in Forest Partnerships in the cocoa, coffee, oil palm, rubber and timber value chains.
