Restore native Miombo woodlots on smallhold farms Promote sustainable farming and management of Miombo woodland and sustainable management
Promote economic development
Build livelihood resilience
The Luanshya district is Zambia's most densely populated region and as a result its forests have been disappearing. Throught a holistic approach that integrates livelihood development with ecological restoration, WeForest supports farmers to restore the native Miombo woodlands that are disappearing from the region. By employing assisted natural regeneration of Miombo woodlots (plots of native woodland on farms) and introducing economic activities such as bioenergy and honey production, local communities can restore their forests. 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 an longevity of the conservation and livelihood outcomes.
