REDD+ Mozambique: Empowering Rural Communities Towards Sustainable Forest Management

With 70% of forest cover, Mozambique has promoted a system of forest concessions, community management and forest governance. Charcoal is still produced from native forests, leading to immense pressure on natural resources, and way beyond its regeneration capacity. It has proven effort on how to make the forest sector contribute to its national development plans, help grow the economies, reduce rural poverty, while being environmentally sustainable. Local communities in Mozambique work toward strengthening natural forest management to ensure sustainable use of forest resources that will increase benefits to them and add value to forest their products.This video is part of a series featuring results under the REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation Initiative), a system of financial incentives for more sustainable forest management. It depicts forest communities’ livelihoods, drivers of deforestation and its human impacts in Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Ghana, Liberia, and Mozambique.

society awareness, based on good understanding on forest role for economy life, in order to maintain forest conservation is very critical factor, towards eventually managing successfully the climate change
