Abstract



Articles presented in this special issue are drawn from research findings of the project “Management of Miombo Woodlands”. This is being implemented in five Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) countries (Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania) by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in collaboration with the Institute of Environmental Studies (IES) at the University of Zimbabwe and other partners from the region. The project seeks to increase our understanding of the management and use of the miombo woodlands, to show how different policies influence people-woodland interactions, and environmentally friendly ways of harvesting the woodlands for industrial purposes. The project is implemented as three interrelated sub-projects with the main foci on policy impacts, governance issues, and low impact industrial harvesting of woodlands.
