Mozambique Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG) – 2005-2009 Second phase of support from the European Union and Dutch Government
In Mozambique, 10,823,000 people out of a total of 15,278,000 live in rural areas mostly in small communities within 40km of the coast where subsistence agriculture, forest resources and artisanal fisheries constitute the main options for income generation. Poverty in these rural areas and amolngst forest-dependent communities is widespread. Deforestation within Mozambique was estimated at roughly 50,000 hectares per year between 2000 and 2005. New data from WWF suggests that this may have risen to 219,000 hectares per year. Increasing populations with a need for agricultural land are an important contributory factor. Selective logging may play an indirect role by opening up access to new areas.
