Mozambique - Forest Investment Project : environmental assessment : Environmental and social management framework (Portuguese,English)

The development objective of Forest Investment Project for Mozambique is to improve the enabling environment for sustainable forest management and investments in Mozambique, and to promote sustainable forest and land management practices in targeted landscapes. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (i) plans to be based on solid and participatory inventories of resources involving local communities and authorities; (ii) harmonize short, medium and long term interests of all groups and support people, households and communities to develop small-scale, biologically diverse agroforestry systems, forest gardens and tree plantations which provide a diversity of goods and services to the community, including fuel wood, medicinal plants, soil fertility, wildlife, and construction materials and seek Free, Prior and Informed Consultation from communities before any intervention; (iii) adoption of the Mosaic approach and or of other similar approaches that are already being tested and applied in Mozambique and other parts of the world could be a possible solution for ill planned forest operations, particularly plantations; (iv) areas below 200 meters in general have been subject to extensive and practically permanent transformation including the general devastation of rich natural miombo forests; (v) all planting interventions must adhere to well designed and informed land and resource use plans; (vi) promote buffer zones along all the local river and streams to ensure their integrity and protection of other aquatic life forms; and (vii) existing riparian vegetation must be preserved from any kind of activity that implies its reduction or modification, except if the objective is its restoration.
