Vi Agroforestery in New York – building inclusive, healthy and resilient communities through agroforestry. There are solutions in the food-migration-health-climate nexus that work for sustainable development for all.
On July 11th, Vi Agroforestry, together with the rest of Agroforestry Network and UNDP, will host a side event at UN High Level Political Forum in New York highlighting the benefits of agroforestry as a solution for people, planet and prosperity.
