This project aims to fill the information gaps on Prunus africana, with a view to producing the scientific basis for the development of a non-detriment finding (NDF) of this species for the CITES Scientific Authority (SA). Flora of the Republic of Burundi. The project reflects a response to the 2007 CITES questions on the management of Prunus africana in Burundi. The NDF report will be refined over time based on inventory data and the socio-economic survey.
