Landscape restoration for multiple objectives The landscape is a complex system (Parrot et al., ) composed of biophysical, social, economic, and governance elements.

Afforestation is the direct human-induced conversion of land that has not been forested for a period of at least 50 years to forested land, through planting, seeding and/or.

Then President Julius Nyerere declared the region the “desert of Tanzania”. As a result, a national restoration project called HASHI (Soil Conservation and Afforestation Shinyanga, in Swahili: Hifadhi ardhi Shinyanga). HASHI started in to restore the desert.

Afforestation 72" is defined as establishment of forests on lands which historically have not contained forests. The REDD+ initiative being run in Zanzibar by CARE International is called Piloting REDD in Zanzibar Through Community Forest Management.

In Swahili, the initiative is referred to as Hifadhi misitu Zanzibar (Conserve forests in Zanzibar) or HIMA. HIMA is using a tailor-made PFM approach based on CFM agreements 1 to reach goals that are specifically pro-poor and gender equitable, in line with.

Examples in the country are the two soil conservation projects HADO and HASHI in Dodoma and Shinyanga regions respectively. The extensive savanna woodlands in the semi arid central, western and southern parts of the country constitute a post fire secondary forest zone where the potential for forestry as a major productive activity is high but.

Hence, it is essential to adopt an appropriate way to conserve this forest ecosystem and to try in the reforestation, afforestation and development of forests by the native tree species.

So, we should plant the. Once the trees and other vegetation in an area are gone, there is nothing left to hold the soil in place. The soil then turns to dust and can be blown and washed away. In this way, the soil is degraded and the precious soil nutrients are lost, leaving the soil infertile and useless.Soil erosion by water is defined as the detachment and displacement of soil particles by water, resulting in the development of rills and gullies [8].

To overcome the problem of soil deterioration, the Usambara farmers have developed local soil and water conservation (SWC) measures such as miraba (rectangular.The soil is in general red loamy sand (latosol).
