About the course

Agroforestry is becoming increasingly recognized as a critical strategy for increasing climate change resilience and improving local community livelihoods. Agroforestry, which has the potential to maximize environmental, economic and social benefits, has also been widely used as a successful approach to sustainable land use management. Agroforestry practitioners must understand the fundamental principles of agroforestry and how to collaborate with local farmers and other relevant stakeholders in the design of agroforestry systems in order to reap the benefits. This is the focus of the e-course.
