Even without climate change, there is an enormous challenge to meet the growing demand for food with the current status of soil health in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)
The biggest advantage of agroforestry is that it can help to mitigate climate change while at the same time contributing to the adaptation agenda. From the mitigation side, agroforestry is the simplest technology in terms of what the farmers —smallholders — can do on their farms.
New study shows that tree dieback affects the climate change mitigation potential of a dry afromontane forest in northern Ethiopia
Tropical forests play a critical role in climate change mitigation by balancing atmospheric carbon fluxes. However, dry forests are susceptible to dieback under conditions of increased temperature and extreme climatic events such as drought, which affects their potential...
