Mpingo Conservation and Development Initiative: Combining REDD, PFM and FSC certification in southeastern Tanzania

Mpingo Conservation and Development Initiative: Combining REDD, PFM and FSC certification in southeastern Tanzania

Mpingo Conservation and Development Initiative (MCDI) has been supporting PFM in Kilwa district, southeastern Tanzania, since 2004. MCDI focuses on sustainable management of high-value hardwood timbers in the miombo woodlands on communal village lands in Kilwa district. The NGO’s name comes from its flagship species, East African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon or mpingo), which is used in Europe and North America to make musical instruments. Reductions in carbon emissions are generated through community-based fire management that prevents and potentially reverses forest degradation.
