Valentina Robiglio, PhD, is a senior land use systems scientist at CIFOR-ICRAF. Her expertise focuses on the characterization and trajectories of land use and smallholders farming systems in the tropics of Central Africa and Latin America, and on socio-technical processes of transition towards sustainable production. In recent years, she has studied forest cover dynamics in smallholder contexts and the causal mechanisms driving them. She currently coordinates projects on agroforestry for avoided deforestation and restoration in smallholder farms in the Amazonian regions of Peru. She is based at the CIFOR-ICRAF office in Lima, Peru.
