|2. Initial tasks in agroforestry projects|
In some countries, the value of agroforestry as an effective tool for reaching ecological as well as economic development goals has been well recognized. Policymakers have adopted agroforestry as a desirable system of land use in upland areas and steps have been taken to promote and implement agroforestry systems among upland farmers. Before an agroforestry project is planned or implemented, however, certain preproject tasks need to be undertaken.
