Frontiers in Global Agroforestry
Agroforestry systems are dynamic and ecologically based natural resource management systems that integrate trees on farms and across the agricultural landscape to provide a variety of social, economic, and environmental benefits. This webinar series showcases the breadth and depth of global agroforestry systems by presenting the diverse experiences of individuals from across the world who engage with agroforestry from a wide range of fields. By presenting their diverse perspectives, this series aims to broaden the audience’s understanding about the role of these agroforestry systems in agriculture, livelihoods, and resilience at multiple scales.
The series will be held virtually over Zoom. As always, YFF talks are free and open to the public. Below you will find links to view past recordings and join upcoming talks.
