Agroforestry in landscape restoration for livelihoods, climate and ecosystem services

January 12, 2018

The Agroforestry in landscape restoration for livelihoods, climate and ecosystem services Discussion Forum was held at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Bonn on Dec. 20, 2017.

Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals, the session focused on the accomplishments and future of agroforestry as a path toward sustainable landscape restoration. By offering a route to reconciliation between the frequently competing claims of agriculture and reforestation, agroforestry is playing an increasingly central role in policy-making.

The session aimed to achieve a vital exchange of knowledge on ecosystem functionality, biodiversity, livelihoods and climate change, among other topics. The forum demonstrated the potential dividends for human wellbeing offered by landscape restoration in developing countries.

The session was hosted by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), with Humanist Institute for Co-operation with Developing Countries (HIVOS) and the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).
