Over the last four decades, agroforestry research (particularly on degraded landscapes) has evolved into an essential problem-solving science, e.g. in terms of sustaining agricultural productivity, improving soil health and biodiversity.

Agroforestry and sustainable landscape management are key strategies for implementing the UN-Sustainable Development Goals across the world’s production landscapes. Electronic books: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Agroforestry as a tool for landscape restoration.

The book was funded by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its lead author is Andrew Miccolis, who heads World Agroforestry in Brazil. Its five chapters begin with basic concepts of ecological and landscape restoration, using a multidisciplinary, holistic approach.

Agroforestry -- the practice of integrating trees and other large woody perennials on farms and throughout the agricultural landscape -- is increasingly recognized as a useful and promising strategy that diversifies production for greater social, economic, and environmental benefits.

Agroforestry and Biodiversity Conservation in Tropical Landscapes brings together 46 scientists and /5(2). Florencia Montagnini is the author of Agroforestry as a Tool for Landscape Restoration ( avg rating, 1 rating, 0 reviews, published ), The Silvic 4/5(2).

Agroforestry systems (AFS) are becoming increasingly relevant worldwide as society has come to recognize their multiple roles and services: biodiversity conservation, carbon sequestration, adaptation and mitigation of climate change, restoration of degraded ecosystems, and tools for rural development.

This book summarizes advances in. This realization should help promote agroforestry and its role as an integral part of a multifunctional working landscape the world over. The book should be particularly useful to students, professionals, researchers and policy makers involved in natural resource management, agroforestry, biodiversity conservation, and environmental management.

World Agroforestry (ICRAF) is a centre of science and development excellence that harnesses the benefits of trees for people and the environment. Leveraging the world’s largest repository of agroforestry science and information, we develop knowledge practices, from farmers’ fields to the global sphere, to ensure food security and.

The book highlights approaches, which are timely and critical towards achieving national and regional development strategies in SSA, while contributing to global initiatives, such as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Forest Landscape Restoration. who is the President of the European Agroforestry Federation (EURAF), may be able to recognise agroforestry, it is doubtful whether many others “know agroforestry when they see it”.

This handbook argues for a wide definition of agroforestry. In fact, we argue that much of the British landscape is actually an agroforestry landscape. She has written ten books on agroforestry systems, ecological restoration, tropical forest ecology and management, and about scientific articles, of which 80% have been published in international refereed journals.

Several of her publications are in Spanish to ensure dissemination and as a contribution to the host countries.

Researchers in Indonesia have produced an illustrated book to help farmers better understand research results. The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) recently published an illustrated storytelling guide, Menanam pohon di bukit batu (Planting trees on a stony hill), to help spread knowledge of land-restoration and food-security techniques developed by researchers and farmers in Haharu.

Decision-making bodies at all scales face an urgent need to conserve remaining forests, and reestablish forest cover in deforested and degraded forest landscapes. The scale of the need, and the opportunity to make a difference, is enormous.

Degradation is often viewed as ‘the problem’, and restoration as ‘the solution’. But, rather than being a goal, [ ]. In response to the Bonn Challenge, Ethiopia has committed to restoring 15 million ha of degraded forest and savannah.

This study focuses on rehabilitation of communal lands in Tigray through the use of exclosures. Exclosures, often established by using so-called social fences in Ethiopia, are widely recognized as effective in restoring vegetation. This study identified factors.

Forest landscape restoration is a critical strategy for tackling critical societal challenges of our time, including global food security and climate change Bioversity International and members of the Global Partnership on Forest and Landscape Restoration are working to ensure restoration maximises delivery on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Within an international context, recent studies from FAO, CIFOR and the World Agroforestry Centre supports the use of agroforestry for landscape restoration in the world, as well as regionally, in Latin America (Schweizer et al, ) and Central Asia (Djanibekov, et al., ).

Forest Landscape Restoration in Context. background. Agroforestry as a Tool for Landscape. Inthe World Resources Institute (WRI) published a report on the steps needed to scale up re-greening to a wider area, providing a practical approach to landscape restoration (Reij and Winterbottom, ).

The report focuses primarily on re-greening. About. Montagnini’s research focuses on variables controlling the sustainability of managed ecosystems with emphasis in the tropics: forest, tree plantations and agroforestry systems; sustainable land use systems that integrate ecological principles with economic, social, and political factors; the principles and applications of forest landscape restoration; the reforestation of degraded.

A recent report from a Black Creek, Iowa restoration project suggests that riparian zones can be designed to harvest products such as hay from switchgrass; sawtimber from oaks, black walnut, and ash; chip material for pulp; biomass for energy; landscape mulch from fast-growing species such as willow, cottonwood, or silver maple; salable native.This book details the experiences of researchers engaged in these landscape-scale initiatives across the first two years of implementation.

With dedicated chapters on current progress, biodiversity, methods and evaluation the book provides useful tools and resources for research and implementation.An agroforestry-parcel economic model has been designed to consolidate primary data about agroforestry products data and allow for profit and loss forecasting at parcel level under different planting models.

The inputs section of the tool allows for selecting the agroforestry model, planting.
