Madagascar is one of the first countries where WWF has sought to innovate on the field in terms of restoring degraded forests in the east-central part of the country.
For Nanie Ratsifandrihamanana, "the focus is not just on planting trees for ecological priorities, but for a toolbox of agricultural, forestry and social activities, benefiting for nature and communities at the same time. (...) It was a demanding learning process for all of us. "
To these thirteen years of restoration, from challenges and experiences gained in the Fandriana Vondrozo Corridor, WWF has published a report highlighting the restoration of more than 6,700 ha of forest area, reducing deforestation from 2.58 to 1% and a 30% increase in community incomes through sustainable production systems. Available for download here, this document shares detailed lessons learned on forest restoration from the Malagasy example. The main guarantee of success is that forest restoration should include, as a matter of priority, the appropriation of communities living close to forests. Also, it is a continuous process in the medium and long term that can only be measured in decades.
