About The Project
The Trees on Farms (TonF) project is aimed at building the awareness of the role trees on farms can play in biodiversity conservation across landscapes in Peru, Indonesia, Honduras, Uganda and Rwanda. Our rationale is simple – trees provide valuable ecosystem services from fuelwood to improving soil fertility and controlling water runoff. They provide fodder for livestock and habitat for animals and pollinators. Globally, trees on agricultural lands account for more than 75% of carbon sequestration. Farmers need them, and the planet does too. Learn more about our work with governments, local communities and other stakeholders to achieve this goal.
The World Agroforestry (ICRAF) implements the project globally with activities in five countries and also directly manages it in Uganda, Rwanda and Peru. The Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is the lead in Indonesia, supported by Tanjungpura University, Pontianak. The Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñza (CATIE) leads in Honduras. The International Union for Conservation of Nature provides knowledge management and outreach expertise.
