9781853397172: More People, More Trees: Environmental Recovery in Africa

Over 20 years ago, concerned famers’ groups in Kenya and Burkina Faso began to adopt new measures to conserve soil and water and to reestablish trees in their fields. Two videos, "Looking after our Land" and "Building on Traditions", recorded the new participatory approaches for land conservation being developed at that time in various countries.

More People, More Trees returns to the same communities, and some of the same people, in Kenya and Burkina Faso to document developments since the original filming. The film shows spectacular changes: most obviously more trees planted and protected by the people themselves aided and encouraged by continuing community projects. More People, More Trees thus highlights a demonstrable success story for community participation in agricultural change in Burkina Faso and Kenya.

In this film, the landscapes tell their own story, but so do the local people. The accompanying book expounds upon the powerful messages in the film and describes the technologies employed by the communities, provides hard data to support their testimonies, and looks at the current challenges of soil conservation in the context of climate change.

The film, in English and French, is aimed at farmers and farmers’ groups. The book and film package will also inform development policy makers, agricultural extension workers, NGO workers, and the broader development community about a notable achievement in participatory agricultural development.

Review:

“A timely and hugely important film―and companion booklet―that make a vital point about environmental recovery in Africa.” (Professor Jules Pretty, OBE)

“I strongly recommend this work for its portrayal of positive interventions.” (Dr. Dennis Garrity, Director General)

“This fascinating film shows how small investments can result in huge changes, if appropriate technologies are used and if farmers are fully involved in the development process.” (Professor Ian Scoones, Institute of Development Studies)
