Lima, Peru – December 20, 2017 /3BL Media/ – The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in collaboration with Bioversity International and The Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE) today published an Atlas titled ‘Suitability of key Central American agroforestry species under future climates’.
Agroforestry’s ability to produce multiple benefits can make it a key feature of Peru’s innovative and multi-sectoral approach to NDCs. What is needed to fully harness it?
Climate action is increasingly a country-led and country-driven process. Through their nationally determined contributions (NDCs), each country articulates how they will meet targets set out in the Paris Agreement.

The report, Putting a Value on the Ecosystem Services Provided by Forests in the Eastern United, shows the value of forest conservation, not only in creating a legacy of healthy forests for future generations to enjoy, but also the economic value that it provides.
Climate change poses one of the greatest challenges to the continued prosperity of businesses, communities, and ecosystems around the world. For Antea Group, our partners, and more than 97% of the world’s publishing scientists, this is an indisputable fact—and a challenge that requires collective action.
