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.

CGIAR Research Program 6: Forests, Trees and Agroforestry: Livelihoods, Landscapes and Governance

Export citation

CRP6 is designed to make a significant contribution toward the vision and strategic objectives articulated in the CGIAR’s Strategic Results Framework by: 1. enhancing the contribution of forests, agroforestry and trees to production and incomes of forest-dependent communities and smallholders; 2. conserving biodiversity, including tree genetic diversity, through sustainable management and conservation of forests and trees; 3. maintaining or enhancing environmental services from forests, agroforestry and trees in multifunctional and dynamic landscapes; 4. reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and augmenting carbon stocks through better management of forest- and tree-based sources while increasing local and societal resilience through forest-, agroforestry- and tree-based adaptation measures; and 5. promoting the positive impacts and reducing the negative impacts of global trade and investment as drivers of landscape change affecting forestlands, agroforestry areas, trees and the well-being of local people. The proposal was prepared by CIFOR, World Agroforestry Centre, Bioversity International and CIAT. CRP 6 was presented and approved at the 4th Fund Council Meeting in April 2011.
