Managing Agroforestry Systems in a Changing Climate

Author: Savanna Institute

Description: All ecosystems are complex, including agroforestry systems. They are made up of many organisms interacting with each other and their environment. Through observing and understanding how ecosystems function, people can work with natural processes to design and manipulate ecosystems for desired benefits in ways that are sustainable, resilient, and even regenerative. In this course, we dive into these fundamentals of agroforestry management. In Lesson 1, we discuss how biodiversity is essential to agroforestry systems and ways that practitioners maintain biodiversity in agroforestry systems. In Lesson 2, we explore how climate change is affecting agricultural ecosystems and how agroforestry can contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation.
