The development of Agroforestry Research by the World Agroforestry Centre



The development of Agroforestry Research by the World Agroforestry Centre



Journal of South Pacific Agriculture 8(2): 32-36



The International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF), Nairobi, was founded in 1978, joined the Consultative Group for International Research (CGIAR) in 1991, and recently changed its named to the World Agroforestry Centre. This paper reviews 25 years of research by the Centre. We argue that the first agroforestry researchers made over-optimistic assumptions and took some wrong paths.
