Under a partnership framework created in 2007 with two Zimbabwean universities and CNRS, CIRAD is studying protected areas and their peripheries in Southern Africa with the aim of reconciling agricultural production and natural resource conservation for the benefit of rural communities. In 2009, CIRAD validated this platform as one of its priority partnerships in Africa.
This global network aims to improve, through synergy and the pooling of skills at a regional level, the management of risks associated with emerging and transboundary diseases (TADs) in the fields of animal health and veterinary public health, working in coordination with decision makers and health actors (veterinary services of the countries involved, international organizations, research institutes, bilateral agencies...).
This platform is geared towards analysing rural development policies and natural resource management. CIRAD and the University of Pretoria are spearheading this partnership, which aims to develop a regional character, notably by integrating partners from Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
The partnership comprises the following three institutions: FOFIFA, the University of Antananarivo and CIRAD. These three institutions have been working for more than ten years on innovative and adaptive approaches that aim both to conserve the country’s biodiversity and forests and to optimize the use and value of these natural resources. The partnership was renewed for a period of ten years on the 27th November 2012.
