Integrated land use Assessment (ILUA) II-phase


Integrated Land Use Assessment (ILUA) II project is aimed at strenghtening capacity in planning and implementation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) through better information, capacity building, dissemination of information, and improved multisectoral dialogue. ILUA II implementation including mapping and bio-physical field survey started in 2011. In 2013 additional funding for 2 years with 2 meur was approved in order to finalise bio-physical survey and Forest Livelihoods and Economics Survey. The project implementation is planned to end in 2015, producing results for all provinces regarding forest resources, land use patterns, deforestation trends and socio-economic aspects affecting forest resources and land-use. This information will be used for sustainable amnagement of forest resources and improved land-use planning. The aim is also that Gov of Zambia will continue funding regular collection and analyses of same data and information. The Project has contributed to the institutional and operational structure of the administration enabling the inventory measures as well as identifying the improvements to be made. Scientific material including biophysical information, soil organic carbon data, forest classification review and socioeconomic information has produced. Data guidelines have been developed.
