5th European Agroforestry Conference @ Nouro, Sardinia
May 17 @ 20:00 – May 22 @ 17:00

From the website:

“Agroforestry, as a practice of integrating woody vegetation with crop and animal systems, benefits agriculture, forestry and related stakeholders with a sustainable land management, with multiple ecological and economic interactions. As such, agroforestry systems can be integrated with a set of practices to produce biological resources and sustainable methods of food, wood, and fiber production and provide a wide range of ecosystem services, such as carbon sequestration, water regulation and habitat provision for biodiversity and landscape amelioration. While, at local scale, it can benefit farmers, landowners and nature conservation efforts, at larger scale, it can help the European Union to accelerate the deployment of a sustainable European bioeconomy towards the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as objectives for the Paris Agreement. However, this requires research proposals and results tested with silvoarable and silvopastoral agroforestry systems designed mixed with agricultural and forestry practices to demonstrate their management, production and profitability. Such knowledge should then benefit and reach end-users to facilitate the correct implementation of optimal and beneficial practices within a European bioeconomy development context.”
