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.

Book Description:

Land degradation and desertification are not new phenomena in Africa, but historically, projects to combat these problems have failed. Twenty years ago, concerned development agencies began working with farmers’ groups in Kenya and Burkina Faso using a new, participatory approach. This film revisits these communities and development workers to document the positive changes that have taken place in that time.

The accompanying booklet expounds upon the powerful messages in the film--principally that participatory approaches, simple technologies based on improved traditions, local capacity building, working with women’s groups and sustained investment are effective. The film, in English and French, is aimed at farmers and farmers’ groups. Together with the booklet it targets policymakers, extensionists, NGO workers and the broader development community.

About the Author:

William Critchley is a specialist in tropical agricultural development and heads a unit on sustainable land management at the at the VU University Amsterdam’s Centre for International Cooperation.
