abstract

  • The Agroforestry and Forestry in Sulawesi: Linking Knowledge with Action (AgFor Sulawesi) project works with local communities, governments and non-government organizations to improve farmers' incomes through agroforestry and landscape-management systems. Agroforestry is a combination of agriculture and forestry: trees that farmers want are grown on their farms or community land, often mixed with other crops and livestock. When these agroforests grow old they often look more like natural forests than tree farms because they are usually a mix of different types of trees. Experience has shown that agroforests can improve farmers' incomes and help protect natural forests. AgFor Sulawesi plans to solve several problems in order to improve people's lives and help protect the environment
