 ABOUT THIS WEEK’S EPISODE:

It is estimated that with 30 percent of the world’s tropical forests, the rate of deforestation in Africa exceeds the global annual average of 0.8 percent. While deforestation in other parts of the world is mainly caused by commercial logging or cattle ranching the leading causes in Africa are associated with human activity.

One of Africa's biggest challenges is the need to develop environmentally sustainable ways of living for its people. We hope that by understanding the processes that shaped Africa's environmental history in the last few centuries, we can begin to decipher the necessary environmental adjustment and encourage a positively practical sustainable environment.
