    Indigenous Knowledge of Edible Tree Products - The Mungomu Tree in Central Mozambique 2005

    The objective of the study was to review and document the local knowledge base on the Mungomu tree in the district of Macossa and establish whether it varies according to gender, socio-economic status and generational differences. The study also looks at how the nut is used by local people and at its importance for food security. The study found that the culture of using Mungomu is very much alive in the district of Macossa. All long-term residents knew about the Mungomu tree and its n ut Ngomu, and only a few new residents who arrived after the civil war were not aware of it. Consumption however is declining due to the use of oilseeds such as peanuts, and the amount of work involved in cracking the nuts. Traditional methods involve using a small and a big stone to crush the nut, or splitting the nut casing with a stick and an axe blade. These rudimentary systems for cracking the nut were found to be the main barrier to maintaining, or possibly commercializing, the utilization of Ngomu. The kernel is used to enrich sauces, to accompany meat, fish, and vegetables, but also to produce oil. Consumption increases in difficult times, such as droughts and during the civil war.

    The training manual is composed of 5 learning blocks beginning with an overall introduction to the training by creating an enabling space for personal gender reflection. This is followed by sessions to build a foundation for gender analysis which unpack the concept of gender and gender roles through the Harvard Analytical Framework to facilitate the understanding of practical implications. Gender equity and equality is emphasized in forestry interventions as the goal of gender mainstreaming. The core components of gender mainstreaming in gender-sensitive actions are discussed. The practical tools for mainstreaming gender into forestry interventions are explored through project management cycles from assessment until evaluation and re-planning process. Gender mainstreaming in organization is also addressed with specific action points for each participant to follow after the training.
