COMMUNITY BASED FOREST MANAGEMENT IN HALF MILE STRIP IN KILIMANJARO

Tanzania

Titre : COMMUNITY BASED FOREST MANAGEMENT IN HALF MILE STRIP IN KILIMANJARO

Pays : Tanzania

Numéro projet : TAN/SGP/OP6/Y2/CORE/BD/2017/11

Domaine : Biodiversity

Durée : 7/2017

Bénéficiaire : Tanzania Environmental Action Association

Context
Despite the value of Mount Kilimanjaro, changes in land use patterns resulting from pressure on land and forest resources pose a great threat to the sustainability of the forest as well as socio-economic and geological functioning of the ecosystem. Agriculture and settlement in some areas replaced forests. Many species are being threatened due to encroachment. The encroachment stems mostly from the use of forest areas for agriculture, charcoal making, settlement, livestock grazing, collection of fodder, setting of fires, lumbering and fuel wood collection. Thus, the HMFS, which buffers Kilimanjaro Forest Reserve and Kilimanjaro National Park, is experiencing severe stress than it currently estimated, given the pressure and trend of the changing land uses of the area.

Project’s Primary Objective
The overall objective of the action is to build capacity to local community to mitigate the impact of forest depletion through promoting sustainable management of the HMFS and alternative livelihoods improvement in the project area. Implementation Strategies : • Carry out baseline study to establish the status of HMFS ecosystem management and its constraints • Mapping the project area where the indigenous and fast growing tree seedlings will be planted and conserved • Facilitate development approval of management plan for forest ecosystems for each target village
