Description

Original data sets on household and community perceptions of forest tenure, governance, and condition. The data includes results from 2,822 households and 249 villages surveyed across three districts in eastern Zambia (Nyimba, Mambwe, and Lundazi). This survey data was collected in 2015 as part of the baseline for an impact evaluation – designed in part to examine the relationships among forest tenure, governance, and condition – of a reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) program in Zambia. The research design employed a multi-stage sampling methodology, with villages selected by probability proportionate to size and household respondents identified through random selection following stratification by female-headed respondents, wealthier households, and youth-headed households. The village survey represents a survey of each village’s headman or headwoman. From the original baseline datasets, we restrict the observations for this study to include households with access to at least one primary forest for livelihoods or consumption.
