Money grows on trees - direct values from community management in Tanzania

Year: 2005 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
In an effort to bring back life to the degraded and over-used lands of the poor Shinyanga region of Tanzania, the government has brought back the traditional practice of Ngitili. Vegetation and trees are nurtured in enclosures and managed through the community. The practice initiative has been a success, through education, guidance and empowerment of local institutions. Not only are there benefits from the grown products, depicted in this figure, but also biodiversity has increased as well as livelihood security.
