Climate Change and Agroforestry

Sheikh Zayed Centre (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

With the conclusion of UNFCCC COP22 in Marrakesh on 18 November, which is also the first conference of parties of the Paris Agreement, the world is calling for action on climate change. Countries have already indicated through their NDCs that agriculture is one of the most important sectors for both climate change adaption needs and mitigation potential.


Agroforestry is one of the most efficient ways of using land. As a land-use system in-between forest and open-field agriculture, it can—with appropriate combinations of trees, crops and livestock—provide a range of goods, benefits and services simultaneously, such as nutritious food, renewable energy and clean water while conserving biodiversity.
