      Managing the Miombo Woodlands of Southern Africa. Policies, incentives and options. For three villages in Malawi, the addition of woodland income to the household accounts leads to a 12 percent reduction in measured income inequality (Fisher ). P.G. and Werren, M. Stackwood volume estimations for miombo woodlands in Malawi. In this study we present general (multiple tree species from several sites) above- and belowground biomass models for trees in the miombo woodlands of Malawi. Such models are currently lacking in the country. The modelling was based on 74 trees comprising 33 different species with diameters at breast height (dbh) and total tree height (ht) ranging from to 2 cm and from to m Cited by:

      Miombo woodlands is one of the major forest vegetation types covering about two thirds of the country forest land and form an integral part of the rural landscape in Tanzania, also they play crucial role in providing wide range of ecosystem services including carbon sequestration.

The miombo/people interface Farmers in Malawi remove woodlands to plant crops but they also derive a vast range of other basic needs from the surrounding forests. These miombo woodlands have until relatively recently always been vast in comparison to the.

role of miombo woodlands in supporting rural livelihoods in Malawi. The intention is that this information can help us approach indigenous woodland management from a more informed point of view.

The Introduction describes in a general way the traditional relationship between people. Miombo is the vernacular (plural) name for Brachystegia boehmii and similar trees found across Southern Africa (Coates Palgrave et al.

However the name miombo is widely used to describe the savanna woodlands of Southern Africa that are dominated by trees of the subfamily Caesalpinioideae of the Leguminosae, mainly of the genera Brachystegia, Julbernardia and Isoberlinia.

Despite the local livelihoods support function provided by miombo woodlands of Tanzania under participatory forest management, its growth still has potential for carbon storage and sequestration attractive to REDD+ initiatives. This study has revealed the average growth to be significant, despite the local community livelihoods support function.
