The interface of forests, trees and agroforestry is at the heart of this CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA). With over 230 researchers working in more than 80 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America, FTA responds to the urgent need for a strong and sustained research focus on the management of forests, given the crucial role trees play in confronting some of the most important challenges of our time. Spanning scales from farms to landscapes, FTA research ranges from genetics to governance and involves dozens of organizations and hundreds of partners.
