Africa programmes

Many countries lack access to practical user-friendly information about sustainable management of agricultural commodities and forest resources. They also often lack trained and experienced professionals. This is the case across many sectors – and especially in the management of natural resources in Africa. Proforest's Africa programmes train and support more people to put in place sustainable production and sourcing practices.

Africa Palm Oil Programme

The Africa Palm Oil Programme supports growers, governments, NGOs and other stakeholders to understand and adopt sustainable production practices. The programme has a specific focus on small and medium-sized enterprises, particularly in areas where palm oil production is expanding.

Africa Practitioners Network

This programme provides training, structured practical experience and support for a professional network for governments, companies and NGOs. It aims to build capacity to understand and implement more sustainable governance and management of the continent’s natural resources including forests and oil palm.
