Trees in agricultural landscapes are now more in demand than ever, for a variety of reasons. They can play an important role in reducing the gases that cause global warming, and help farmers adapt to climate change. At a time when the price of mineral fertilisers is rapidly rising, leguminous trees provide much needed fertility, virtually free of charge, and help to improve crop yields and farmers’ incomes. In short, agroforestry has a major role to play in improving food security and creating a healthier environment. That is why the research conducted by the World Agroforestry Centre over the coming years, in partnership with others, will be more important than ever before.
