In parts of the developing world, deforestation rates are high and poverty is chronic and pervasive. Addressing these issues through the commercialization of non-timber forest products NTFPs has been widely researched, tested, and discussed. While the evidence is inconclusive, there is growing understanding of what works and why, and this paper examines the acknowledged success and failure factors. African forest honey has been relatively overlooked as an NTFP, an oversight this paper addresses.

Why bees are critical for achieving sustainable development

African Forest Livelihoods View all 5 Articles. In some of Africa's forests a natural endowment of floral resources and honey bee populations, have given rise to significant beekeeping activity. The scale of this economic activity is influenced by the strength of beekeepers' links to market. In recent decades, the demand for organic-certified bee products has created export potential and a private honey buying company started buying honey from Mwinilunga in By Forest Fruits Ltd had obtained organic certification and by the company was buying close to 1, tons of honey a year, from 3, registered beekeeper-suppliers. The importance of this growing honey trade for the local population has been recognized, but not explored in depth. A field study was carried out in 2, 3-week periods in and

This volume provides basic information about managing wild bees and on the use of their products. It identifies and describes major bee species and their importance for nature conservation and for sustaining livelihoods of rural people. Bee products are considered at both subsistence and commercial level, and particular attention is given to the potential for further development of managing wild been species in developing countries. The role of bees for pollination of crops and the impact of managing bees on forestry and farming are presented. Wild-bee keeping techniques, honey production and marketing, and the international trade in been products are described with further references and sources of additional information given. Using this publication, readers will better understand the complexities and opportunities for developing apiculture by rural livelihoods. Also published in French.

Citation of this paper. Promoting diversification in agriculture through apiculture could provide both food, nutritional, medicinal and livelihood security to the rural work force on an ecologically sustainable basis. It is therefore, necessary to promote beekeeping in India. The present investigation was carried out in Panchkula district of Haryana state in India and respondents included a group of 30 beekeepers who were still in the occupation of beekeeping and another group 30 beekeepers comprised of respondents who had left the occupation of beekeeping for one or the other reason. A pre-tested interview schedule was used to delineate the ecological factors affecting beekeepers for continuing in the occupation and to assess the constraints faced by them.

Harnessing the power of bees to benefit forest and people

The past has seen Kenya put in spirited efforts to protect its forest lands from further degradation. Working with relevant government agencies, communities play a key role in protecting and conserving forest lands while supporting local livelihoods. Over the years it has championed innovative approaches to conserve and manage the Loitokitok forest, covering hectares of land on the Kenya-Tanzania border. The indigenous sections of these forests are under particular threat since illegal loggers prefer wood from indigenous trees for timber and fuelwood.

In parts of the developing world, deforestation rates are high and poverty is chronic and pervasive. Addressing these issues through the commercialization of non-timber forest products NTFPs has been widely researched, tested, and discussed. While the evidence is inconclusive, there is growing understanding of what works and why, and this paper examines the acknowledged success and failure factors.
