This first edition of a synthesis document, compiling a status of forest genetic resources in the Sahelian and North-Sudanian zone of Africa and a sub-regional action plan for the sustainable management of these resources, is the fruit of a process undertaken at the initiative of countries in the sub-region, towards a better consideration of the important but complex issues linked to forest genetic resources. The synthesis and the action plan were prepared by the representatives of 15 countries assembled during a sub-regional workshop on the conservation, management, sustainable management and enhancement of forest genetic resources in Sahelian Africa, which was held from 22 to 24 September 1998 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The drafting of the documents also benefited from the active participation of 8 international, regional and bilateral institutions, the work of resource persons, as well as various national actors in Burkina Faso.
