                        WP1 Parkland dynamics drivers (co-leaders Droy I. & Dieng M.)

will provide a diagnosis. Three tasks will analyse :
Task 1.1 at landscape scale the population growth,  migration, urbanization, climate variation, policies, market volatility, using remote sensing (multi-dates), parkland tree inventories and biometric measurements, surveys, analysis of population census, to assess the main biophysical, technical, and socio-economic management drivers of the studied parklands.
Task 1.2 at territory scale the current sectorial and land regulation, structures of parkland governance and access, focusing on competition and conflicts around land and tree tenure that constrain resource and market access and sustainable parkland management, distance from villages, soils, agricultural, pastoral/transhumance, forestry practices, collective initiatives, group behaviour, i.e., gender, cultures, etc.
Task 1.3 at farm scale, the cropping/home garden system, technical means, inputs and outputs, tree product uses, leasehold contracts and access rights.

At territory and farm scales, participatory analysis and focus groups, will help to identify
stakeholders who are motivated by innovative management and arrangements promoting
sustainable intensification of parklands.
