Project description

The tropical forest margins are characterised by socio-ecological dynamics which contribute to changes in tree cover usually through changing land use practices in relation to stakeholders’ perception, needs, and objectives. The aim is to analyse the land use dynamics and assess the contribution of tree intensification/diversity agroforestry system as a climate change mitigation strategy through along the forest margin landscapes.
