Summary - Zambian case:
• Welfare has generally improved over the past 10 years - attributed to agricultural expansion and intensification (incl. government input subsidies), coupled with the growth of various crop markets – increased rural-urban connections (livelihood diversification).
• More money available, which has led to improved food security and living standards. People can generally afford better clothing, household commodities, and education for their children.
• However, it was noted by the villagers that there is now a larger disparity in wealth within the community.

Summary - Tanzanian case:
The upland village:
• Adoption and enforcement of land tenure policies that restrict shifting cultivation.
• International policies on climate change - REDD+
The plateau village: • Population pressure causing competition for land between shifting cultivators and pastoralists.
• National land tenure and resource use policies

The outcome In both villages the transformation of shifting cultivation negatively affected household income and increased periods of food insecurity.
