Major Household Activities among the Sample Households
Policies promoting pro-poor livestock sector development I. Reducing vulnerability land – water – feed – risk-coping II. Creating conditions for growth services – credit – markets III. Sustaining growth food safety – competitiveness – environment MACROECONOMIC POLICIES Livestock-Related Policy Domains Source: ILUA Policy Workshop – Dr. T. Kalinda
Level of Agricultural Input Utilization Policy implications in terms of: Promoting higher utilization of inputs like fertilizer among smallholder farmer to enhance productivity and conservation of land and forest resources Credit and Extension provision Facilitation of private sector participation through infrastructure development Source: ILUA Policy Workshop – Dr. T. Kalinda
Pattern of Forest Harvesting (Based on Responses From Household Data
WAY FORWARD WITH ILUA 1.Establishing a national database on the land use resources - contribute to sustainable natural resource management 2.Support the establishing of a long-term resource monitoring system across multiple sectors (institutionalizing ILUA to provide detailed data to REDD) 3.Support dissemination of reliable and update information on land use to policy and decision makers and the general public. 4.Identify social, cultural, environmental and economic aspects of land use and land use change to address a number of issues such as climate change, floods, land degradation, deforestation, research, etc 5.To stimulate the implementation of best practice guidelines (reclassification of protected areas) in fire management, timber harvesting, tree planting, carbon accounting, etc. 6.Strengthen positive synergies across sectors 7.Encourage value augmenting activities, wildlife ranching, eco-tourism, carbon markets and trading,etc 8.Improve on scientific approaches to data generation (local modeling) and capacity building within FD
