In recent years, the concept of agroforestry - including 'forest gardens' - has gained increased attention in the food security and agricultural development communities. Integrating trees into agriculture can prevent erosion, maintain soil health, and improve livelihoods through bolstering resilience. While applications of these techniques are impressive, both challenges and opportunities for growth remain. 

The Alliance to End Hunger, Trees for the Future, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations invite you for a Roundtable Discussion on the role of trees in agricultural development, as well as in food and nutrition security.
