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.

Integrated landscape approaches in the tropics

Export citation

The tropics represent a particular area of concern for conservation and development as they have endured unprecedented levels of environmental degradation, limited development relative to temperate areas, and have high concentrations of extreme poverty and malnutrition (Curtis et al. 2018; Song et al. 2018). The stakes are very high, as the tropics also host a disproportionately large share of global biodiversity with areas vulnerable to climate change (Barlow et al. 2018).
