Creating knowledge for UNDERsTanding ecosystem seRvicEs of agroforEStry systems through a holistic methodological framework

Project description

Better understanding agroforestry

Agroforestry is a system of land use management that has varied benefits, including increased biodiversity and reduced erosion. The EU-funded UNDERTREES project aims to form an international and inter-sectoral network of 15 organisations in 3 continents (Europe, Africa and South America) to work on a joint research programme in the field of agroforestry and ecosystem services assessment. The participants hail from academia, government and enterprises who will exchange skills and knowledge to progress towards key advances in agroforestry systems’ evaluation and design, while enhancing collaborative research and innovation staff exchange across different continents.
