Abrupt Changes in Ecosystem Services and Wellbeing in Mozambique (ACES) Newsletter Feb 2015
ACES is a three-year (2014 -2017) research project that is being implemented in Mozambique with the main purpose being to contribute to poverty alleviation in Mozambique by co-producing new knowledge of the dynamic links between land use change, Ecosystem Services (ES) and the wellbeing of the rural poor and thereby meet the demand from policy makers and practitioners for ways to better manage Mozambique’s woodlands. The research sites include Gaza, Manica and Niassa Provinces, with research conducted on charcoal production, commercial agriculture and forest plantation land use change drivers in each site.
This newsletter presents the achievements for each of the work plans for the first year of the project, outlines the next steps, and highlights innovations within the area of research.
