FTA Science Week
After three years of research, and supported by a recent external evaluation, the CGIAR Research Program of Forests, Trees and Agroforestry is keen to share progress on emerging topics on the interfaces between current program components, and to build on these in future planning to maximize synergies and joint contributions to Intermediate Development Outcomes. We also take stock of the Sentinel Landscape characterization activities and the opportunities SLs provide for further integrative and co-located research efforts.
