Katanino
Zambia, Katanino Forest Reserve, Copperbelt province started 2019 Active Restoration
Summary
In the absence of strong governance, Katanino Forest Reserve has been heavily degraded for charcoal production, agriculture and timber extraction. We are laying the groundwork so that local communities, with public institutions, can take over management of the reserve. In addition, more than 900 farmers in the buffer zone will set aside at least half a hectare each in their farms as restoration plots and take up income-generating activities – mainly beekeeping – to reduce pressure on the forest.
