Agroforestry can improve food security, farm diversification and income generation in Zambia uri icon

abstract

  • Fifteen years of research and development work by the World Agroforestr y Centre (ICRAF) and its par tners in Zambia have refined agroforestr y technologies that can have a huge impact on food security and income generation at low cost and while protecting the environment. Current policies are failing to take advantage of these new technologies. Minor polic y changes could bring about much greater adoption of these proven technologies with major benefits to farmers and the Zambian economy
