Agroforestry offers pathways to sustainable landscape restoration

Posted by

Land restoration is part of a global plan for meeting targets agreed at UN climate talks in 2015. The aim is to limit global temperature increases to well below 2 degrees Celsius and to pursue efforts to limit increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
More than 80 percent of activities to restore degraded land in Kenya will focus on tree-based or agroforestry systems, according to the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF). Agroforestry landscapes cover 1 billion hectares of terrain worldwide and make a significant contribution to the overall health of the planet.
The introduction of trees to farms and landscapes for multiple productive purposes could play a key role in mitigating the impact of climate change by potentially contributing to more than 1.5 billion hectares of mosaic land restoration.
