5. SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND MANAGEMENT RESEARCH PRIORITIES AND ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN TO DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE SECONDARY FOREST MANAGEMENT OPTIONS
The following management research priorities are identified for secondary forest in Anglophone Africa:
- Valuation of the environmental benefits of secondary forests in the
national economy. Lack of data on environmental values makes it impossible to
consider environmental benefits of forest in the national accounting system.
- Development of techniques for monitoring wildlife populations in secondary
forests and for determining sustainable levels of hunting.
