Description

  • The book is a compilation of articles on the application of agroforestry technologies to landscape restoration in degraded lands.
  • The book is divided into five sections covering the following topics:
    • Agroforestry as a means to restore productivity to degraded land for rural populations
    • The simultaneous benefits of soil restoration and non-timber forest products from agroforestry systems
    • Biodiversity conservation across agricultural landscapes through the implementation of agroforestry
    • Watershed restoration and conservation using agroforestry systems
    • Experiences on agroforestry training and dissemination
  • Given the complexity of successfully implementing agroforestry systems in degraded landscapes, the book is intended to highlight key issues and approaches that can be used to address common problems.
