Rural Livelihoods and Forest Incomes in the Etinde Community Forest of South West Cameroon

Mukete Beckline, Zhongqiu Sun, Vivian Ntoko, Dominic Ngwesse, Abdul Manan, Yang Hu, Ngoe Mukete, Loveline Che, Jacinta Foncha
For several decades, many households in rural areas have relied on surrounding forests for their livelihoods, safety nets and sustenance. This reliance is most often determined by the household’s characteristics, available forests and economic benefits. That notwithstanding, the demand for more farmlands and unsustainable harvesting of forest resources are pushing these forests into depletion. This rapid decline endangers the livelihoods of forest-reliant households, threatens biodiversity and i...

Climate Change and Carbon Sequestration among Smallholder Farmers in Uganda: An Introduction and Review of Literature

Hellen Abbo Owasa
In Uganda, sorghum constitutes the second most widely grown cereal according to the latest statistics from the country’s statistics body, the Uganda Bureau of Statistics. This notwithstanding, there has been, in the context of Uganda, very little research and published literature on its potential to sequester carbon. There is no sufficient data on the exact levels of carbon sequestered by this sorghum/legume intercropping system, which is widespread as a technology within Uganda’s smallholder so...

Natural Regeneration of Indigenous Species under Plantation Forests of Mahoganis (Swietenia macrophylla and Swietenia xaubrevilleana): The Case of Martinique

Philippe Joseph, Kévine Baillard, Jean-Philippe Claude, Yelji Abati, Séverine Ely-Marius, Stéphane Sophie, Yanis Jean-Francois, Jean-Emile Simphor, Peguy Major
In many geographic areas influenced by tropical and temperate climates, natural forest ecosystems have been destroyed in favour of plantations of allochthonous trees which are economically profitable for different aspects of the timber industry. Some of these mature plantations degrade the soils and inhibit natural regeneration of the local flora; others, due to the physical constraints they impose, can contribute to the installation and the development of autochthonous taxa. The plantations of ...

Role of Women in Maintaining Suburban Agricultural Land in Togo (West Africa)

Anissou Bawa, Kouyadega Djalna, Hodabalo Kamou, Komlan Batawila, Jacques Imbernon, Koffi Akpagana
The preservation of suburban agricultural land in the face of rapid urbanization in the West African region has been a major problem in recent decades. This paper examines the land tenure strategies used by farmers in relation to their assessments of the impact of urban growth. It is based on individual surveys conducted among farmers and landowners on the outskirts of the city of Lomé in Togo. This study reveals that perceptions differ according to gender and that women—although marginalized by...

Case Study of Baiyun and Caohai Lakes Implies How to Implement Wetland Restoration/Creation

Lin Xiao, Qun Zhang, Guifeng Wei, Sixi Zhu, Fanyang Yu, Boping Han
This work discusses how to implement wetland restoration/creation from the viewpoint that wetland aquatic plants are divided into four life forms: emergent, submergent, floating and floating leaf plants. Caohai Lake and Baiyun Lake were selected to discuss the difference of the species richness changes during the creation/restoration process. Baiyun Lake and eight surrounding wetlands have been selected to discuss how the species
