The Faculty of Agronomy and Forestry Engineering (FAEF), from Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM), has been leading the Miombo Regional Network since 2011. The MN is composed of scientists from several countries in Africa, Europe and the United States. At the same time, FAEF has been leading a research program on fires and the dynamics of miombo woodlands in the Niassa Special Reserve, for more than 15 years.
Thus, an event was held that brought together scientists from the Miombo Network and beyond, the FAEF will hold a two (2) day workshop aiming to disseminate research outputs in view of contributing to the sustainable management of miombo woodlands.
The workshop First Niassa Special Reserve Science Meeting and Miombo Network Meeting: from science to miombo woodlands management, held at the Hotel Gloria in Maputo, Mozambique, between the 3rd and 4th of June 2021 and was a mix model (presential and virtual). The meeting will also launch the book: Miombo Woodland in Changing the Environment: Securing the Resilience and Sustainability of People and the Woodlands, recently published by the network.
WCS was represented in the meeting by Mr. Afonso Madope, the WCS Mozambique Country Director.
