Eco-agroforestry network

The Eco-Agroforestry Network aims to bring the sustainable agroforestry approach into the mainstream of UK food, fuel, timber, and fibre production, through research, dissemination, and policy change.

Eco-agroforestry network aims

  • Increase agroforestry research and development activity with the aim of improving the output of food and fuel, timber and fibre products from agroforestry systems without damaging biodiversity
  • Target policy makers within the UK in order to bring about a more sympathetic policy framework that understands the need of an integrated approach to food, fuel, timber, and fibre production, whilst enhancing biodiversity on agricultural land.
  • Increase dissemination of information to, and increase communication with farmers, growers and land managers in order to encourage uptake of the eco-agroforestry approach and encourage farmers to gain the most both financially and ecologically out of trees and shrubs already established on their land.
  • Promote knowledge transfer and establish a platform for collaboration between: farmers and landowners, governmental organisations, businesses, and conservation bodies in order to create support for agroforestry, links throughout different supply chains, and establish a viable market for eco-agroforestry.
