Proposal Phase II — Forests, Trees and Agroforestry: Landscapes, Livelihoods and Governance

Posted by

FTA communications

The CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry: Livelihoods, Landscapes and Governance (FTA) fills a special niche in the overall CGIAR Portfolio. FTA is the only program working on all aspects of the values and benefits of trees and forests for people, landscapes and agricultural sustainability. This is also the world largest integrated program on these issues.

Since its beginning in 2011, FTA has demonstrated the crucial role forests, trees and agroforestry systems play in producing goods of both local and global importance and supporting food systems through regulation and the provision of ecosystem services.

The proposal for the second phase of FTA 2017-2022, builds on the solid foundation of the first five years, and intends to widen the research scope and reinforce collaboration with partners. It will make research on forests, trees and agroforestry even more relevant for the Sustainable Development Goals and the CGIAR Strategic Framework. With the Phase II proposal, FTA is breaking new ground scientifically to achieve a balance between development and environmental sustainability.
