Experience the challenges of rural development and conservation
community LANDSCAPE management GAME
Agriforest/COHAB is a game about village level land use decisions in Central Africa, inspiring conversations about rural development, human-wildlife interactions and community-led conservation.
How We Are Using It
We have used Agriforest to open up discussions about forest managment with local and indigenous communities.
Between 2020-2022, we have adapted the game to integrate human-wildlife conflicts to facilitate conversations about cohabitation with chimpanzees in Guinea. The COHAB game was then used to identify concrete conservation measures that communities would be willing to invest in, and was used to define alternative economic activities to develop a new approach to biodiversity and ecological impact offsetting.
We have used the game both with local and indigenous communities as well as with high-level and institutional decision-makers.
