    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 threatened tree species were observed. Background: Concentrations of threatened species are found in particular in and around the Eastern Arc Mountains and in the coastal forest of Tanzania.

    Source: National Forest Resources Monitoring and Assessment of Tanzania (NAFORMA). 2015. Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Tanzania. Methodology: The map shows the average (mean) tree species richness for each cluster in the NAFORMA inventory. Background: The average tree species richness is generally higher in lowland forest, montane forest, and closed woodland, indicating the high biodiversity value of these forests.

    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.

    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.

Methodology: The map shows the locations of NAFORMA clusters where edible 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 nearly 30% of interviewed household collected plant-based food from the forest.

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. In Tanzania, beekeeping activities can be a potentially sustainable forest supported livelihood source. Activities were found concentrated in forests south of Tabora.

    Source: National Forest Resources Monitoring and Assessment of Tanzania (NAFORMA). 2015. Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Tanzania. Methodology: This map shows the predicted above ground biomass [MG per ha] at 250 m resolution. It has been created by using the NAFORMA field data on above ground biomass as training data, and using random forest as model. The ancillary data used for prediction included NDVI and seasonal parameters derived from MODIS data, elevation, as well as climatic variables.

    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 mushrooms 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. Mushrooms were observed mostly in the south. The NAFORMA inventory found that nearly 30% of interviewed households collected plant-based food from the forest.
