What is it?

The World Agroforestry Centre and the Indian Council of Agricultural

Research,  together with the Indian Society of Agroforestry and Global

Initiatives, will hold the Congress in Delhi, India 10-14 February 2014.

 

The Congress, entitled ‘Trees for Life: Accelerating the Impacts of

Agroforestry’, will draw over 1200 selected participants from the private,

research and development sectors to share the current state of knowledge and

accelerate the positive financial, environmental and social impacts of

agroforestry.

 

Make a contribution

A more important date is the deadline to submit abstracts. Slots to present

papers and take part in discussion sessions are filling up fast, and time is

running out. The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2013, so you only

have a little over two more weeks. Submit abstracts of papers and posters

here: http://www.wca2014.org/abstracts/.

 

Abstracts submitted for the Congress will be evaluated and accepted for one

of the following options:

•    Oral presentation (in some form) in relevant sessions

•    Presentation as a poster

•    Suitability for the congress compendium

All abstracts selected will be included in the congress compendium.

 

A dynamic agenda

The Congress has a number of themes. The first day features presentations on

Indian topics related to agroforestry. The second part deals with business

and agroforestry, third is a consideration of development and agroforestry,

and fourth is a review of scientific breakthroughs and innovation. The final

day looks at the integration of science, business and development, with

keynote speakers and a panel discussion, and a plenary discussion of the

outcomes. The full list of themes is:

•    Agroforestry systems, income and environmental benefits

•    Climate change, multi-functionality, livestock and fish systems

(These two with an orientation towards India)

•    The business of agroforestry: applying science

•    Sustaining development through agroforestry

•    Applying science to the future of agroforestry: breakthroughs and

innovation

•    Policy, innovation and global issues.

The agenda is structured to generate outputs that produce a global roadmap

for agroforestry in the context of world development and create a deliberate

and tangible legacy in terms of recognition, partnership, investment and

impact.

Upcoming Events

Registration for GLF Accra is now open

This calendar is based on information provided by COMIFAC and the Franco-German support office is considered a complementary event schedule to the official calendar posted on COMIFAC's website. (http://www.comifac.org/events). It offers a broad overview of international and regional events that are directly linked to CBFP's objectives: major conferences and meetings, workshops and training sessions and other activities scheduled by CBFP Facilitation and its member organisations. 

Our choice is by no means exhaustive and depends largely on our partners' notice. Every partner organisation is thus welcome to contribute to a rich variety of posted events and to share its schedule with CBFP's Facilitation and the other members! We may also, upon request, forward your input to the COMIFAC webmaster.
