CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

5th World Congress on Agroforestry

Transitioning to a viable world

Scientists from CIFOR-ICRAF will join other stakeholders at the 5th World Congress on Agroforestry in dialogues on how agroforestry can bring solutions to different ecological, social and economic needs and challenges. Agroforestry contributes to enhancing soil health, protecting water quality, increasing biodiversity, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and ensuring food security, health and revenues. The Congress will foster collaboration and strengthen connections to bring together agroforestry-related research, policy and implementation.

The Congress will take place both in-person in Québec City, Canada and virtually.

Participants include farmers, researchers, advisors, policy makers, and representatives from the government, the civil society and the private sector.
