    Source: National Forest Resources Monitoring and Assessment of Tanzania (NAFORMA). 2015. Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Tanzania. Methodology: The map shows the locations of NAFORMA clusters where medicinal plants were observed. Background: Non-timber forest products are important benefits that the forest provide to the population of Tanzania. REDD+ activities could be designed to assist communities to sustainably extract subsistence or income sources from the forest, where possible. Edible and medicinal plants were observed in most parts of the country. The NAFORMA inventory found that around 15% collected plant-based medicines.

Methodology: This map shows the predicted total volume [m3 per ha] at 30 m spatial resolution. It has been created using the k nearest neighbour (knn) approach, with the NAFORMA field data on total volume as training data. The ancillary data used for prediction included Landsat 8, ALOS and Sentinel 1 data.

    Source: National Forest Resources Monitoring and Assessment of Tanzania (NAFORMA). 2015. Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Tanzania. Methodology: The map shows the locations of NAFORMA clusters where impact on the land by charcoal production was observed. Background: Charcoal production is a major driver of forest degradation in Tanzania, and the REDD+ Action Plan has identified a number of activities for addressing this problem, including diversifying energy sources and conducting trainings and investing in improved charcoal making technologies. Understanding the spatial distribution of charcoal production will help in targeting such interventions. The observed impact on land from charcoal production appears to be closely correlated to the road network and proximity to population centres.

REDD+ activities could be designed to assist communities to sustainably extract subsistence or income sources from the forest, where possible. Edible and medicinal plants were observed in most parts of the country. The NAFORMA inventory found that nearly 30% of interviewed household collected plant-based food from the forest.
