dc.description.abstractZambia is a country rich in natural resources, but many of these resources have been poorly managed. In the past Zambia focused on copper mining and industrialization paying scant attention to development of agriculture, sustainable management of renewable natural resources and control of environmental pollution. Zambia, which has an area of about 752,972 Km2, is endowed with a rich natural resource base. The forestry resource is the most extensive natural heritage that the country has, covering between *55.1% and 60.1% (PFAP) of the total land mass of country. Forests are a major source of food energy shelter and medicines for humans and provide a habitat for wildlife.en
