INAFE produces network’s 2006-2009 AF research compendium

The Indonesian Network for Agroforestry Education (INAFE) recently published a compendium of agroforestry researches conducted during 2006-2009 by its member institutions and partners.

The publication contains 22 research papers with topics ranging from various agroforestry systems practiced in Indonesia to roles of agroforestry in addressing environmental degradation and climate change. Written in Bahasa Indonesia, the papers were contributed by the Forestry of Research and Development Agency (FORDA) and Gajah Mada University (UGM) from Yogyakarta province; Bogor Agriculture University (IPB) from West Java province, Lampung University (UniLa) from Lampung province, University of Tanjungpura (UnTan) from West Kalimantan Province, University of Mulawarman (UnLam) from East Kalimantan province, and University of Putra Malaysia (UPM).

The project was aimed to enhance the dissemination of agroforestry researches of INAFE member institutions and partners within and outside the network. Likewise, INAFE envisioned the publication to serve as reference material for teaching and input for policy decisions. The Swedish International Development Cooperation (Sida) funded the project through SEANAFE.

INAFE produced 88 copies of the publication distribution to INAFE members and relevant stakeholders.
