Non-timber Forest Products Markets: Actors And Income Determinants
Trade in non-timber forest products (NTFP) is important in enhancing livelihoods of communities adjacent to forests. However, knowledge about actors and NTFP income determinants in Uganda is scanty. Yet this information is important in targeting profitable NTFP enterprises. This study explored factors that determine involvement in and income from NTFP trade. A survey of NTFP traders was conducted in eleven markets adjacent to Mabira Central Forest Reserve using semi-structured questionnaires. Dominant traders (50%) were females aged above 30 years and with low educational levels. Cross tabulations were done to assess the relationship between NTFP income and several independent variables.
