A l’instar des pays producteurs de bois tropicaux dans le Bassin du Congo, membres de la Commission des Forêts d’Afrique Centrale (COMIFAC), la République Centrafricaine (RCA), située au cœur de l'Afrique entre 02°10' et 11°00' de latitude Nord, 14°40' et 27°45' de longitude Est, regorge d’énormes richesses en ressources naturelles forestières.
The Horn of Africa has seen its fair share of natural resource conflicts among and between competing pastoralists communities. The conflicts hitherto associated with men, ignored women pastoralists’ role in the same conflict.

Although the way in which vegetation phenology mediates the feedback of vegetation to climate systems is now well understood, the magnitude of these changes is still unknown. A thorough understanding of how the recent shift in phenology may impact on, for example, land surface temperature (LST) is important.
