Fact sheet. Project: Comparative study of incentive options for forest - based emissions reduction, biodiversity conservation and livelihood improvement; Case of Kilwa and Lindi DistrictsSokoine University of Agriculture, 2013The project entails a comparative study on incentive options for forest-based emissions reduction, biodiversity conservation and livelihood improvement, comparing villages with REDD+/PFM (Participatory Forest Managment) and without REDD+/PFM and also comparing each set of villages over time.Document
Fact sheet. Project: Developing a fire reduction strategy for Miombo Woodlands as a potential tool for carbon storage and sequestrationSokoine University of Agriculture, 2013Fire occurs in most parts of the Miombo woodlands and is used for a variety of purposes, including hunting and farming. However, fires can have significant negative ecological and socio-economic impacts such as a reduced water supply; decline in biodiversity and agriculture production; increased pollution of water sources; and reduced carbon sequestration.Document
Fact sheet. Project: Climate Change, Non - Timber Forest Products and Livelihood of Forest Dependent Communities - Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation in TanzaniaSokoine University of Agriculture, 2013Over 20 million Tanzanians depend on Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) for their livelihood, but the extent to which NTFPs and community livelihoods are vulnerable to climate change is not well established. The coping strategies of these communities have not been fully documented either.Document
Fact sheet. Project: Development of biomass estimation models for carbon monitoring in selected vegetation types of Tanzania2013The carbon benefits of any forest carbon project are estimated on the basis of changes of carbon stocks in different biomass pools and such changes may be determined through continuous forest inventories, possibly combined with growth estimates, and the use of models for biomass estimation, i.e. allometric biomass equations.DocumentInternal Displacement Monitoring Centre, 2013This technical paper provides evidence-based estimates of the likelihood of disaster-induced displacement in Central American and selected Caribbean states – Belize, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama. It represents a first attempt to better quantify human displacement risk.DocumentInternal Displacement Monitoring Centre, 2014This technical paper represents an initial attempt to assess the risk of disaster-induced displacement in 21 island states in the South Pacific.DocumentGRID Arendal, 2013Zambia has abundant water resources, vast forests, huge mineral deposits, and large tracts of arable land. These natural resources are important for the country’s economy, with copper and cobalt being the country’s main exports.Document2012As stated in the TOR, the primary purpose of the final evaluation is to assess mainly the impact, effectiveness and relevance of the project in relation to its stated purpose, objectives, target groups, partners and other affected parties. It is also to assess project progress towards its stated purpose and identification of constraints hindering such progress.DocumentSokoine University of Agriculture, 2013Over 20 million Tanzanians depend on Non Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) for their livelihood. One CCIAM project is looking into how NTFPs as part of peoples´ livelihood strategy is connected to climate change, so that this information can be spread and forest dependent people can more easily adapt to the effects of climate change.Document
Rights-based rainforest protection Why securing the rights of forest peoples is the right way to save the forest2012The loss of the world’s rainforest has for decades been recognised as a serious, global environmental problem, both by rainforest nations and the international community. Still, 13 million hectares of tropical forest disappear every year. There is, thus, an urgent need for intensified efforts at the appropriate scale and with the right approach.
