AFROMAISON: for a better INRM in Africa

The adaptive and integrated tools and strategies for natural resources management (AFROMAISON) will be financed under 7th FWP (Seventh Framework Programme) for an amount of 4.15 million euro. The main outputs of AFROMAISON are a toolbox, short-term to long-term strategies, quick wins (much gains with little effort) and operational strategies for adaptation to global change. It will focus on the three groups of tools: strategies for restoration and adaptation (including sustainable landscape intensification), economic tools and incentives for Integrated Natural Resource Management (INRM) and tools for spatial planning.
Despite the availability of many tools, expertise, strategies, local practices and indigenous knowledge, the concept of INRM has hardly been brought into practice and the building blocks of INRM in many cases still need to be integrated. AFROMAISON will make use of what is available regarding INRM and will contribute to a better integration of the components of INRM. In view of the decentralization policy in Africa, we aim to focus on the operational requirements of INRM for sub-national (or meso-scale) authorities and communities.
