The Allanblackia partners have performed a variety of economic, social, and environmental research since 2002, much of which is ongoing. The document library on this site and the individual partner websites contains published reports on a wide range of topics from sustainable domestication and forest landscape restoration to market analysis and benefit sharing. See below a list of links for further information on different aspects of Allanblackia:
