Mining Sector Engagement And Integrated Landscape Management

uploaded by Michael Muratha

Forests cover around 45 million hectares in Zambia, or over 60% of the total land area. The Government of Zambia is aware of the prevailing high deforestation rate in the country, which is estimated between 250,000 – 300,000 hectares per year, and one of the top 10 countries with the highest deforestation rates in the world. The main direct drivers of forest degradation is charcoal production and illegal timber extraction, while drivers of deforestation are primarily agricultural and human-settlement expansion (Turpie et al, 2015). Mining activities play a key role in driving these activities, though there are regional and historical differences in forest transition patterns. The Government of Zambia decided in 2009 to participate in REDD+ as an opportunity to directly address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation (Zambia, 2015).

Reconciling REDD+ at Multiple Scales Republic of Zambia

uploaded by Wesley Roberts

REDD+ is a national scale mitigation mechanism voluntarily adopted by countries across the world. However, several countries have used a subnational approach to implement their REDD+ activities as interim measures, helping countries to test approaches and tools on the field, including FREL/FREL, NFMS, Safeguards, PAM, etc. for potential “+” actions and administrative arrangements of a country.

 

This presentation outlines the challenges and options available to Zambia in terms of reconciling REDD+ at multiple scales.

(Flyer) Benefits of Forest Ecosystems in Zambia and the role of REDD+ in a Green Economy Transformation

uploaded by Maddie West

The main objective of the study was to assess the economic value of Zambia’s forest ecosystem services. The  study estimates that, when ecosystem services provided by forests are accounted for, forests make a direct contribution to the national economy equivalent to about 4.7% of gross domestic product (GDP), which rises to 6.3% with the application of multiplier effects.
