Mobilizing science to create massive transformative impact

The EverGreen Agriculture Partnership is organizing a side event at the Congress on Thursday, 13 February at 1530 hours in the Turquoise Room of the Kempinski.
This side event will provide a forum for catalyzing momentum and linkage between research and scaling activities to spread EverGreen Agriculture technologies in several high potential regions of the world. Participants will be provided the opportunity to brainstorm and plan potential activities to take EverGreen Agriculture forward in their regions, the plans developed will form the basis of the EverGreen Agriculture Partnership’s strategy to provide assistance and support to the regions.

EverGreen Agriculture is emerging as a science-based solution to regenerate the land, combat desertification and increase family food production and cash income.  It is a form of more intensive farming that integrates trees into crop and livestock production systems at the field, farm and landscape scale.  Millions of men and women in Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Malawi, Zambia and other countries are already practicing EverGreen Agriculture, and the momentum for its spread is accelerating.

Evergreen is challenging task, selecting different tree / shrubs combinations to achieve this. That will be good for the soil, animals, fauna and of course human.

One example, Pungamia pinnate, shreds first and becomes green. Very good shade tree for summer shade, a biodiesel tree species.
