Economic analysis of indigenous agroforestry: a case study on Pohnpei Island, Federated States of Micronesia



Economic analysis of indigenous agroforestry: a case study on Pohnpei Island, Federated States of Micronesia



Financial and economic analyses of agroforestry systems: proceedings of a workshop held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, July 1991: 243-258



Indigenous agroforestry is a major land use on many of the Pacific Islands. Generally, little is known about these systems in terms of productivity; thus their economic potential has not been adequately evaluated. This lack of knowledge, along with other socioeconomic factors, is leading to a general decline of indigenous agroforestry in the region, in favour of less sustainable, high input farming systems.
