New Proposed Projects
The Relation Between Population Growth and Land Use in Tanzania; 1960-2005
The proposed study aims to see the relation between population growth and land use in Tanzania.
Several components of land use will be considered and among them the rate of depletion or recovery of forest cover will be highlighted.
Energy, Spatial Enforcement, and Incentives for Forest Management in Tanzania
We propose to focus on the literature on enforcement decisions and to generate data on spatial enforcement activities.
We will also examine policies that can be implemented in a spatial manner to control the spatial pattern of resource degradation and to encourage local people to enforce access restrictions against non-local people’s intense extraction of wood for charcoal.
