During the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, UNDP, Agroforestry Network and SIANI will host a side event: Building inclusive, healthy and resilient communities through agroforestry.

In this lunch-time event, representatives from governments, UNDP, IFAD, Sida, ICRAF, and the Agroforestry Network highlight the benefits of agroforestry as a solution for people, planet and prosperity. The event highlights the latest agroforestry advances between migration, resilience, gender equality and climate. Vi Agroforestry presents on-the-ground examples from Uganda where Swedish development cooperation and humanitarian work go hand in hand to strengthen the resilience of societies to the effects of climate change while providing food and income and strengthening women’s, and families’, economic empowerment.
