10-14 February 2014, Delhi, India

First Announcement: Save the date!

To accelerate the contribution that trees can make to world development, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research and the World Agroforestry Centre, together with the Indian Society of Agroforestry and Global Initiatives, have begun preparations for the ground-breaking World Congress on Agroforestry 2014 to be held in Delhi, India on 10-14 February 2014.

The Congress, entitled ‘Trees for Life: Accelerating the Impacts of Agroforestry’, follows on from the 1st World Congress on Agroforestry in 2004 and the second in 2009. Over 1000 selected participants drawn from the private sector, research and development will share the current state of knowledge and seek to accelerate the positive financial, environmental and social impacts of agroforestry.

Offering a unique opportunity for the business and research communities to interact, the Congress will be built around a structure dealing with science and innovation; food and nutrition; environmental protection; enterprise; knowledge and policy environment, and climate change. It will produce a global roadmap for agroforestry in the context of world development and create a deliberate and tangible legacy in terms of recognition, partnership, investment and impact.

Further information will soon be distributed on the details of the agenda and the method of registration. In the meantime, see www.wca2014.org for further details or email wca2014@CGIAR.org to register your interest.

The Congress will be co-organized by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, the World Agroforestry Centre, the Indian Society of Agroforestry and Global Initiatives.
