Mekong Expert Group on Agroforestry: impact on ASEAN

The Mekong Expert Group on Agroforestry for Food and Nutrition Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Land Restoration was formed in early 2018 with support from the Swedish Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI) to help address major land-use challenges in the ten nations that make up the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). The Group from its inception has provided expert advice to the development of a number of major guiding documents that will influence the development of agroforestry in the region of 650 million people.

The SIANI support ended in December 2018 but the Group continues, facilitated in the meantime by World Agroforestry (ICRAF) Southeast Asia.
