One of our DAAD scholar graduates (batch 2015-2017), Vianny Ahimbisibwe, had recently been a speaker at the Global Landscapes Forum Africa 2021 in a session titled “Know how needed for successful forest landscape restoration in Africa”. Working as a research scientist at the Thünen Institute of International Forestry and Forest Economics, while pursuing his doctoral degree at the TU Munich, Vianny talked about “Forest Landscape Restoration: What Generates Failure and Success?”. His presentation was based on his recent research with colleagues, published in the journal Forests.
The session discussed about fundamental practices and skills required by various stakeholders to support FLR efforts, particularly in Africa. The other speakers in the session were represented by University of Geneva, Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources, WWF Madagascar, and Michigan State University.
