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 in Peru, Indonesia, Honduras, Uganda and Rwanda. Our rationale is simple – trees play a critical role in contributing to biodiversity conservation in agricultural landscapes through in-situ conservation, by connecting fragmented wild habitats and providing steppingstones between protected area networks and conserving soil biodiversity and agrobiodiversity. They are useful and profitable to farmers as they provide a range of goods and services from fuelwood to controlling water runoff. 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.
