The International Center for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF, also known as World Agroforestry) is a centre of science and development excellence that harnesses the benefits of trees for people and the environment.

Leveraging the world’s largest repository of agroforestry science and information, we develop knowledge practices, from farmers’ fields to the global sphere, to ensure food security and environmental sustainability. Our vision is an equitable world where all people have viable livelihoods supported by healthy and productive landscapes.

Since its official registration in Viet Nam in 2007, ICRAF Viet Nam has developed climate-smart agroforestry options, and agro-climate information services that sustain agro-ecosystem productivity and environmental resilience in the face of intensifying climate change impacts. The organization evaluates the role and contribution of trees in land restoration and secures landscape functions such as water regulation, carbon storage and soil erosion control. We are also involved in the development of business cases for co-investments in managing landscapes.

ICRAF’s activities in Viet Nam aim to create more inclusive, sustainable livelihood alternatives for smallholder farmers. We work directly with rural communities to develop market-based agroforestry options that simultaneously improve farm productivity and income, expand tree species diversity, enhance coping mechanisms, and match trees, soil and crop species to sites and systems.

ICRAF Viet Nam also involves in policy advocacy and planning processes at national and sub-national levels, and facilitates regional dialogue at the ASEAN level to promote agroforestry amongst member states.

ICRAF Viet Nam focuses its activities in north and central Viet Nam, which are characterized by high poverty levels and accelerating land use change due to agricultural expansion and commercialization.
