Virtual Library

The BIOFUND Virtual Library is an online archive of information on Mozambique’s biodiversity, organized along the lines suggested by the Convention on Biodiversity’s Clearing House Mechanism. The Virtual Library will strive to make available all the documents, studies, reports, articles, educational and communications materials, maps and digital files that have been produced, to serve as a repository of our collective institutional memory as a conservation community. The usefulness of the Virtual Library will improve the more we share amongst ourselves. If you have any materials that are not currently part of the Virtual Library, please click on "Add Document" and become a contributor.

Contribution of tourism to coastal livelihoods in Ponta do Ouro, southern MozambiqueCome, J.2014




Tourism is increasingly seen as a panacea for the problems of rural areas, especially in developing countries. It is promoted by governments and international development organizations as a vehicle for achieving development, poverty reduction and economic growth. However, tourism has resulted in many unwanted economic, social, cultural and environmental consequences for local communities. Through a case study conducted in Ponta do Ouro, Southern Mozambique, this research sought to investigate the contribution of tourism to coastal livelihoods.

Estudo da ocorrência e estado de conservação da Raphia australis Oberm. Strey na Reserva Botânica de BobolePais, A.2011




O presente projecto foi realizado na Reserva Botânica de Bobole (RBB) com o objectivo de se conhecer o estado de conservação actual da espécie da Raphia australis. Esta espécie é quasi-endémica em Moçambique e vive associada a diferentes formas de flora e fauna, constituindo habitat, alimentação e ciclagem de nutrientes para várias epífitas, fetos, microfauna e outros seres vivos. R.australis está sob extrema ameaça, em virtude de estar localizada numa zona com um grande potencial agrícola, atraindo as comunidades circunvizinhas a derrubá-la para a prática de agricultura.

An Analysis of Game Meat Production and Wildlife-based Land Uses on Freehold Land in Namibia: Links with Food SecurityLindsey, P.2011




This project forms a component of the BMZ-funded programme with TRAFFIC entitled “Vulnerable People, Diminishing Wildlife: Addressing priority bushmeat trade, livelihood and food security issues in Africa”. The illegal trade in bushmeat represents a severe conservation threat in several African countries. However, in Namibia, wildlife-based land uses (WBLU) and the legal production of game meat have potential to contribute significantly to conservation, food security and the economy of the country. A structured questionnaire survey of farmers in Namibia was used to gain insights into WBLU on freehold land in the country and links with food security.

The Significance of African Lions for the Financial Viability of Trophy Hunting and the Maintenance of Wild LandLindsay, P. Et al.2012




Recent studies indicate that trophy hunting is impacting negatively on some lion populations, notably in Tanzania. In 2004 there was a proposal to list lions on CITES Appendix I and in 2011 animal-welfare groups petitioned the United States government to list lions as endangered under their Endangered Species Act. Such listings would likely curtail the trophy hunting of lions by limiting the import of lion trophies. Concurrent efforts are underway to encourage the European Union to ban lion trophy imports. We assessed the significance of lions to the financial viability of trophy hunting across five countries to help determine the financial impact and advisability of the proposed trade restrictions.
