Zambia: Measuring Forests

The Miombo, the world's largest dry forest area, is shrinking. Each year, an area the size of Northern Ireland is chopped down. In Zambia, teams of rangers and botanists are documenting how the forest is changing and showing residents how to carry out sustainable forestry.

The REDD+ mechanism, funded by industrialized nations, secures money for developing nations to preserve their forests. Zambia wants to benefit. We accompany a team of local rangers during an inventory of the Miombo forest.
