Agroforestry can transform lives and landscapes. Trees and shrubs grown on farms provide fruit, timber, resins, fuelwood and livestock fodder. They also improve soil fertility, regulate water supplies and help farmers adapt to changing climatic conditions.

Research in the Ethiopian highlands provides some interesting insights into why there are lots of trees in some landscapes, while few in others.

This video is funded by, and is part of, the USAID-funded Africa RISING (Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation) programme, which in the Ethiopian Highlands is managed by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

The World Agroforestry Centre supports the research through the CGIAR Research Programme on Forests, Trees, Agroforestry (FTA).
