BOOK LAUNCH: Towards low-emission landscapes in Viet Nam
For immediate release
Bogor, Indonesia, 21 March 2019— A new book celebrates ten years of contributions to a low-emission economy, preservation of forests, enhancement of watersheds, development of sustainable and profitable agroforestry and improvement of farmers’ livelihoods.
Towards low-emission landscapes in Viet Nam covers some of World Agroforestry Viet Nam’s key research over the past decade. The editors selected work that has contributed to integrated land-use planning for low-emission and sustainable-development strategies in rural landscapes.
The research has been inclusive, integrative and informative: ‘Inclusive’ because the research includes strategies for both forest and agricultural land, for socio-economic and environmental objectives including hydrological functions, and was developed through participatory processes that took into account the perspectives and expectations of female and male smallholders (many of whom belong to different ethnic groups), local and national authorities, and scientists. ‘Integrative’ because the research integrates diverse factors when assessing the impact of the strategies on the multiple functions of landscapes. ‘Informative’ because the approaches were scientific methods drawing on local knowledge, and the findings were provided to national and provincial authorities and local communities.
The post BOOK LAUNCH: Towards low-emission landscapes in Viet Nam appeared first on Agroforestry World.
