Publisher: Eschborn: GIZ, 2013Description: 58 p. ilus.Subject(s): Agricultura | Desarrollo Sostenible | Brasil | Camerun | Indonesia | LaosDDC classification: 338.1 Online resources: Click here to access online | Click here to access online Summary: This report highlights the potential of sustainable agricultural intensification and value chain efficiency to reduce pressure on forests when given the appropriate policy framework and good forest governance conditions. While agricultural expansion has been the largest driver of tropical deforestation, global food production suffers from less than adequate corresponding growth. This suggests that agricultural value chains are still inefficient in many regions and there is large untapped sustainable intensification potential. Synergies may exist between sustainable intensification of agricultural production, diversification of income options and climate mitigation through forest protection. The best mix of management options depends on regional and country-specific circumstances.
