Repeat surveys undertaken in 2000-2001 to determine changes in relative densities of wildlife populations, natural resource use and socioeconomic livelihood aspects in households around the Dabaga Ulongambi and West Kilombero Scarp forest reserves, Tanzania. These data will be applied to assess the effects of participatory forest management and provide lessons learned on community conservation of forest resources.

Strategic Direction: 1 Increase the ability of local populations to benefit from and contribute to biodiversity conservation, especially in and around Lower Tana River Forests; Taita Hills; East Usambaras/Tanga; Udzungwas; and Jozani Forest
