New brief: Addressing food security & climate change with agroforestry, what are the policy options?

A new publication by Eskil Mattsson within our thematic collaboration with SIANI.

Do agroforestry systems produce more and a greater range of ecosystem services than segregated agriculture and forestry systems? Agroforestry practices and multi-functional landscapes have recently returned to the forefront of discussion in response to challenges of the conventional agriculture systems.

The Brief concludes that due to high context specificity, the best policy strategy would be a toolbox with diverse policy options and good practices that can be adapted to a particular setting. Agroforestry policies should include both short and long term elements as well as incentives for investment.
