First International Agroforestry Congress in the Philippines
Date:3/20/2014

[Bohol, Philippines. 20 March 2014] One of the largest gatherings of agroforestry researchers and advocates opened today in Bohol, the Philippines. Agroforestry is touted by many as the future of global land use and a key to creating a sustainable food supply and environment.

Focussing on the theme, "Agroforestry: Greening and feeding the nations in the 21st century", the 1st International Agroforestry Congress is running 1921 March 2014 at the Bohol Plaza Resort, Dauis, Bohol, Philippines.

The congress comes at a time when agroforestry is fast gaining attention as a synergistic approach to alleviating the country's environmental and agricultural woes. Put simply, agroforestry is trees integrated with livestock and annual crops. Typically, agroforestry systems not only increase farm productivity and farmers' incomes but protect soils and store carbon.

Critical to our planet's future sustainability, the congressaddresses three main issues: 1) environmental rehabilitation and climate-change adaptation through agroforestry; 2) ensuring food security through agroforestry; and 3) improving the science and practice of agroforestry.

World-renowned keynote speakers include two leading researchers from the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF).

Dr Ravi Prabhu, ICRAF's global Deputy Director General of Research, will directly address how agroforestry can green and feed the nations of the world by returning trees to farm landscapes.

Dr Rodel D. Lasco, who is the coordinator of the ICRAF Philippines office and a lead author of reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, will explain how agroforestry can help farmers adapt to changes in climate, which is probably the most pressing problem facing the world today if we are to feed our ever-growing population.

Several researchers from ICRAF Philippines will also talk about specific aspects of agroforestry that are relevant to the Philippines, Southeast Asia and globally: conservation ag
