Senegal – Kedougou


Lead Technician

About The Project

In Kedougou, agricultural activities are principally comprised of corn, fonio, millet, and fruits consumed and sold locally. Soils tend to be sandy and gravelly as a result of fairly mountainous parent material. A significant portion of the area remains relatively forested and unexploited, but agricultural expansion and the demand for charcoal production continue to pressure the natural environment.

Today, the 214 farmers in this project have since graduated and continue to implement the Forest Garden Approach for the good of their land and livelihoods.
