This is something that obviously can lead to a great deal of conflict and will certainly lead to a huge loss of human welfare. It is something that we must prevent. Mitigation of the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is the only way to accomplish that globally. There are various ways by which we can bring about the level of mitigation that is required, and certainly agroforestry is one such important component. In fact, we have underrated the advantages and the benefits of using biomass cultivation as a means to mitigate GHG emissions.

Agroforestry is a shining example of this approach, merging centuries-old knowledge with modern science. The future of global land use is no longer just about land – it is about the future of the atmosphere, of biodiversity, and of water, fuel, and food. Keywords Ecosystem services • Systems approach • Sustainability • Greenhouse gas emissions • Organic agriculture Welcome to the 2nd World Agroforestry Congress being held here at the UN Office at Nairobi and jointly hosted by the World Agroforestry Centre and UNEP.

It must be subject to broader cost benefit analysis alongside delivering a wider suite of societal and environmental goals. • Above all, we must bring the best of these worlds together and deploy them in both an integrated and flexible way that recognizes the different circumstances and conditions of the communities they serve. Agroforestry is in many ways a shining example of this approach, merging centuriesold knowledge with modern science in a systems-led approach – and the concept of thinking small-scale to achieve potentially big and transformative outcomes.
