“Climate change is no longer some far-off problem; it is happening here, it is happening now.”
-Barak Obama on climate change
Climate change is one of the major threats to our environment. It has started affecting agriculture, human health, and animals’ lives. Greenhouse gases are mainly emitted from human activities and affecting human lives. This book mainly focuses on how climate has been changed over centuries and affected the environment. Here we have discussed the reasons and effects of climate change and how the agroforestry system can maintain these effects.
Agroforestry is one of the best land and natural resource reuse systems. Agroforestry helps farmers to produce food and get income by selling crop even when you have less resource. Agroforestry requires much management and produces better quality products. We have explained how to implement agroforestry systems and how they will help to fight climate change.
Agroforestry systems can be implemented in every type of region. In watersheds, arid regions, or in normal weather same system can be implemented with different management techniques. In agroforestry, trees and crops are grown, and sometimes animals are also involved.
Traditional agroforestry systems are still in practice in some areas. People in some regions are still following their ancestor’s footprint and growing food as tradition. We have discussed case studies of traditional agroforestry and how they are useful in climate change.
In this book, readers will get all the ideas about agroforestry practices, management, technologies used in agriculture, etc.
