The ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins (originally founded as Alternatives to Slash-and-Burn in 1994) is a global partnership of over 90 research institutions, universities, NGOs, community groups and farmer groups. ASB is currently focussed on reducing deforestation and emissions from land use change, including forestry and agriculture, while ensuring viable livelihoods and enhancing social and environmental co-benefits. This presentation gives an overview of the ASB benchmark sites and lessons learned from the process.
