Assessment of the Forest Reserve Network in Mozambique

The Forest Reserve Network of Mozambique was established during the late fifties. Apart from a few of the reserves that were established for protection of water catchments, most of them were established as timber production areas. Forest reserves are one of the categories of conservation areas, together with National Parks and Game Reserves, covering an area of about 73,000 Km2 (approximately 11.5% of the country’s surface). The Forest Reserve Network was abandoned during the armed conflict, turning some of the forest reserves as refuge for local communities or hideaways for the guerrilla fighters. As a consequence, the population pressure within the forest reserves increased in most of the cases.
