This useful short case study analysed the factors influencing the survival of village tree nurseries in Senegal and found that local involvement in planning and financial incentives were key. In Senegal, there are approximately village nurseries in 10 regions, of which were established under 16 reforestation projects (Division de Conservation de Sol et Reboisement, DCSR, ).

We selected eight villages in each of four projects (32 total). In Senegal, on the reforestation project supported by Reforest'Action and conducted in the field by our partner Kinome, the tree production campaign has been in full swing since March.

The nurserymen in our project have already produced most of the slow-growing species that will be planted this season: lemon trees, guava, jatropha and moringas.
