Summary:

This manual is intended to help rural advisory and agricultural extension workers guide farming communities in the establishment of agroforestry practices in rice-production landscapes in Southeast Asia. It sets out the steps to be taken to successfully integrate trees in rice-fields and associated farms and landscapes and presents practical tools that can be used by extensionists when supporting farmers who are implementing agroforestry practices on their farms. The ultimate aim of this guide is to support farmers in increasing the overall productivity of their farms while increasing resilience to climate change, improving the health of the surrounding environment, and enhancing the livelihoods of their communities
