Christian Dupraz of The French Association of Agroforestry and President of the European Agroforestry Federation (EURAF), introduces agroforestry initiatives in Europe, starting with the nature and findings of research conducted in Europe, as well as current policy developments.
Recent research shows that agroforestry can be just as, if not more, productive than tree-less systems, and fulfils a broader array of functions from improving crop resilience to extreme weather conditions, sequestering carbon to soils and biomass, and to improving biodiversity. There are a number of barriers to the wider adoption of agroforestry in Europe, but these are slowly being tackled by associations of practitioners of agroforestry, armed with better research into farm productivity.
This webinar was organized as a part of a learning event “Agroforestry, food security and climate change” that was organized jointly by the MICCA Programme and the Agroforestry Programme of FAO's Forestry Department in collaboration with key agroforestry partners in February 2013.
