The Luanshya district is Zambia's most densely populated region and as a result, its forests have been disappearing.
Goals of the project in Zambia is, among others, to restore native Miombo woodlots on small farm holds as well as promoting economic development.
The farmer population benefits from diversified jobs, higher incomes and new skills. The project establishes market linkages between small-scale farmers and local private sector companies. In addition, this project looks to aid farmers in obtaining ownership of land in order to secure the sustainability of the conservation and livelihood outcomes.
In Zambia, poverty and environmental degradation are closely linked. Indeed, Zambia is one of the world’s poorest countries and has one of the highest rates of deforestation. In the Copperbelt province, large numbers of miners were forced into charcoal production after the collapse of the mining industry.
Here, we work to restore Miombo woodlots that have suffered as a result, supporting sustainable socio-economic development and promoting a market for a green alternative to charcoal. Named for the dominant oak-like miombo trees, the Miombo woodland is a unique African environment and important habitat for wildlife.
