Rapidly dwindling native forests and wooded wildlands urge us to swiftly adopt agroecological principles into our global agriculture. On May 20-22, 2019 at Le Corum Conference Centre, Montpellier, France, the 4th World Congress on Agroforestry will convene more than 1000 delegates, keynote speakers, agroforesters, researchers and students from all over the world at the biggest agroforestry gathering on the planet.
Events scheduled throughout the city are designed to bring concepts of agroforestry more vividly to life. Field trips to surrounding agroforestry farms, tastings of agroforestry products, and many side events will fill a busy week.
The overall objective of the Agroforestry Congress is to contribute to the progress of agroforestry science in order to bridge the science-policy gap. Major topics to be highlighted at the event include: climate change, food security and nutrition.
