AFINET will promote innovation in agroforestry through the development of a network, based on successful sharing of practical experiences and existing research knowledge, applied to different contexts, climates and agricultural sectors.
The aims of AFINET were to:
Working with our UK partners ABACUS Agriculture, and in collaboration with the UK’s Agroforestry Group, the Farm Woodland Forum, set up a UK RAIN with a series of practical stakeholder events which helped discussions and information sharing. These events were held on farms and focused on gathering together existing knowledge, identifying gaps, innovative practices and solutions. Working with project partners, we contributed to the knowledge cloud, and helped design and develop new material for agroforestry practitioners.
