Shackleton, S., den Adel, S., McHardy, T. and Shackleton, C. 2002. Use of marula products for domestic and commercial purposes: Synthesis of key findings from three sites in southern Africa


Description:

Use of marula products for domestic and commercial purposes: Synthesis of key findings from three sites in southern Africa.

Summary / Notes:

This reports summarises and syntheses the results of household surveys on the use and trade in marula products from three sites in southern Africa: Makhatini and Bushbuckridge in South Africa, and the former Ovamboland in North-Central Namibia. A minimum of 60 and a maximum of 142 household interviews were conducted to establish the uses of marula, the quantities used/made of each marula based product, sales and income figures, cultural and social value, access and management issues, and resource availability in each of the three sites. The current role that marula plays in local livelihoods, and the positive and negative impacts of marula commercialisation on the social, financial, physical, natural and human capital of local households were explored. In this report the commonalities and differences between sites are highlighted. The survey forms part of a larger collaborative project on "Winners and Losers in NTFP Commercialisation" which seeks, through detailed study of selected species, to assess the social and economic impacts and benefits of NTFP commercialisation for the livelihoods of the rural poor.
