Forests and forestry continue to be very much profiled on the global agenda and their relevance to other sectors of national economies is increasingly been recognized and appreciated. This progress report is developed within the framework of the overarching communications and knowledge management strategies designed to communicate the identity and value of AFF’s mandated role in providing a platform for the networking and interchange of forest related information among the many stakeholders in African forestry. This report is on progress made on implementing activities in the year 2017 by the Communications and Knowledge Management Unit of AFF.
