INFOGRAPHIC: Agroforestry & Climate Change

What is agroforestry?

Agroforestry is an agricultural technique that combines trees with crops (or livestock) to create environmental, economic, and social benefits. There are several types of agroforestry, but the main approach that EcoLogic uses in our projects is called alley-cropping, which means planting food crops between rows of trees.

It is one of the solutions that EcoLogic uses to help benefit people and nature in our project sites in Central America and Mexico.

Sustainable agriculture techniques like agroforestry can help address serious threats and challenges, including climate change. See how below!
