The Expansion of Tree Monocultures in Mozambique. Impacts on local peasants communities in the Province of Niassa

A field report, by Winfridus Overbeek.

This publication is the result of a visit to Mozambique in November 2009 by two activists involved in the struggle against tree monocultures in the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo. This visit was made possible by the World Rainforest Movement (WRM) with the goal of exchanging experiences about large-scale tree monocultures.
