Description

Agroforestry is a traditional practice of integrating trees with crops and/or animals. It is increasingly being used as a way to restore degraded sloping lands, to contribute to food security and for economic development. It can greatly help to transform landscapes where trees are a keystone of productivity and thus deliver multiple benefits for humans and ecosystems.

This guide provides both proved concepts and good practices for field practitioners to integrate agroforestry into land restoration in general and sloping land management. The guide is focused on the sloping land in DRP Korea, but it’s also applicable to other landscapes. The guide does not provide ready-made recipes, but offers advice on how to integrate trees and agroforestry practices into land restoration in general, and in sloping land management in particular. Its aim is to help extension workers and farmers formulate their own knowledge, innovations and practices for the specific conditions they face.

The guide is published by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF).
