Learning event on agroforestry, food security and climate change

The Community of practice hosts 2 - 3 learning events per year. The most recent event took place from February to March 2013. The online learning event on agroforestry, food security and climate change was organized jointly by the MICCA Programme and the Agroforestry Programme of FAO's Forestry Department in collaboration with key agroforestry partners, including the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) and the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF). Over 600 participants shared their experiences, and 11 expert presentations were given (see recordings and slides below).

Join the Community of practice to continue discussing with the rest of the members issues related to agroforestry, food security and climate change. Join now!
