Agroforestry, Biodiversity and Ecosystem services

Creating a resilient and sustainable future by farming with trees

Agroforestry, integrating trees and shrubs on the same land that is used for crop production and/or animal husbandry, promotes biodiversity and produces a multitude of ecosystem services. It is not a new practice; rather, mixing trees and crops has been a common way to produce food, fodder, fibre and fuels throughout human history. Promotion and development of agroforestry for food production can help mitigate the challenges of climate change, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss.
