* To demonstrate, using a case study in northern Nigeria, the usefulness of the approach for the economic analysis of afforestation projects in general (chapter ) * To propose topics for research on the effects of rural afforestation (chapter 5). The main findings of the book . Key words: small-scale private forests, rural development, afforestation, change of land-use. INTRODUCTION Agriculture, hunting, forestry and fisheries remain the key economic sector in rural areas and employs 51 percents of the total rural population (Kedaitiene and Martinaviciene ). In .   The study suggests the principles for locating field afforestation in rural landscapes in the scenically most appreciated way. When drawing conclusions, it must be remembered that this case study involved only two villages in northeastern Finland located in valuable landscape by: This paper presents an economic analysis of the planting of trees on marginal lands in Ukraine for timber production, erosion prevention, and climate mitigation. A methodology combining econometric analysis, simulation modelling, and linear programming to analyse the costs and benefits of such afforestation has been adopted. The research reveals that, at discount rates lower than 2%.

This study assesses the livelihoods of rural households in a proposed green field forestry area located in Sanga district of Niassa province, Mozambique. The livelihood analysis was used to analyze potential socio-economic impacts of introducing forest plantations to rural households located within the proposed afforestation area. The afforestation also had a great impact on the local population. Forests are perceived to provide numerous benefits to communities, especially to the poorer rural interior of the island. Since the beginning of the afforestation program, major positive changes in vegetation, land use, and infrastructure can be observed.

Sometimes special tools, such as a tree planting bar, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster. Afforestation and Reforestation Projects under the Clean Development Mechanism PREFACE The first afforestation and reforestation baseline and monitoring methodology under the clean development mechanism was approved by the Executive Board of the CDM in , and yet to date only 52 afforestation and reforestation projects have been registered. manage afforestation program in rural areas.
