Jun 20, 2010

We are contributing to a research project working on the development of Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) projects in Malawi, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, Mzuzu University, LTS International, the Plan Vivo Foundation and the Government of Malawi Department of Forestry, and funded by the Waterloo Foundation. The aim of the research is to establish the best means of combining remote sensing with community-based management to support sustainable forest use in Malawi. The intention is to make a real improvement on the way in which the forests are managed and used in Malawi.
