About the project
The Young African Forestry Professionals Publication project (YAFP) is a new project launched in April 2020 by the joint IUFRO-IFSA Taskforce on Forest Education. The project’s overall goal is to motivate and inspire young people to pursue forest-related studies and careers in Africa by increasing the visibility of career options and young African role models working in forest-related fields.
YAFP is collecting data through interviews of inspirational role models in the forest related fields as well as the research on a short outlook on forest education in Africa and review of networking organizations that African young foresters can join both within and outside the continent.
The results will be compiled into a book that will be published, printed and distributed to tertiary institutions offering degree programmes in forestry and selected high schools on the Africa continent. This project is supported by IUFRO-IFSA Joint Task Force on Forest Education; Special Programme on Development of Capacities- International Union of Forest Research Organisation (IUFRO SPDC) and the International Forestry Students Association (IFSA).
The project is generously funded by IUFRO’s Special Programmes for Development of Capacities (SPDC) and the Joint IUFRO-IFSA Task Force on Forest Education.
