Agroforestry at 40: The institutional evolution of World Agroforestry in research, development, policy and delivery
The institutional evolution of World Agroforestry for the two thousand and tens decade is a combined outcome of sound planning and serendipity. The decade started in a highly disruptive way with the world still reeling from the triple food, fuel and financial crises of 2008-9. On a note of positive disruption, it also started with the CGIAR reform and creation of CGIAR Research Programmes (CRPs) with expanded funding. In particular, the creation of the Forest, Trees and Agroforestry CRP was very useful in helping raise the profile of Agroforestry and ICRAF.
