Welcome to the World Agroforestry in Practice online platform! This initiative has for objective to raise awareness on the universality and omnipresence of agroforestry around the world’s rural landscapes. To do so factsheets describing agroforestry systems written by contributors from all over the world will be published semesterly on this platform. So be sure to check out regularly this webpage to be aware of the new materials uploaded.

Please find below the factsheets already published, available for online reading and free to download!

A NEW WAY OF SEEING AGROFORESTRY

Livelihood diversification through agroforestry has multiple social, economic and environmental benefits which can be demonstrated on this platform. Cultures, gastronomies, and rural livelihoods have, in many ways, been shaped by the diversity of “working trees” available.

The platform is freely accessible to everyone (especially the non-expert audience) to increase visibi-lity and make agroforestry the core framework for tomorrow’s farming and food (r)evolution!
