China in Mozambique's Forests

The Institute for Environment and Development published in 2018 a major study titled "China in Mozambique's Forests: A Review of Issues and Progress for Livelihoods and Sustainability" edited by Duncan Macqueen.

China is the destination for about 93 percent of all Mozambique's timber exports. Concerns have been raised over the impact of these patterns of investment and trade for Mozambique's forests and the development of rural populations. This study compiles three years of work of the China-Africa Governance Project to develop evidence on constraints and opportunities for forest resources in productive and resilient land use and trade, to develop capacity and dialogue among relevant stakeholders in China and Mozambique, and to deliver policy and practice improvement opportunities.
