Agroforestry in the Colombian NAMA Forestry


At regional scales, trees planted within agricultural and livestock systems (agroforestry) contribute to improve the productivity and health of ecosystems. These functions are beneficial for GHG reduction and biomass carbon storage.

Colombia has great potential to develop agroforestry systems to meet its GHG reductions goals, harmonize the progress of the agricultural and livestock frontier and conservation its forests.

In this project, KIMSA analyzed how to integrate agroforestry systems in the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) of Colombia’s forestry sector. We also identified technical, financial and inter-institutional aspects within the design of the route of GHG emissions measures and reductions.
