Agroforestry Policy Initiative Dr Olu Ajayi will soon start full time on the agroforestry policy initiative with guidance from Frank Place. Administratively GRP6 will facilitate this, with connections to all other GRP’s and all regions A number of the regions will report exciting new initiatives
Progress inGRP6 Highlights_1 RUPES + PRESA synthesis: http://presa.worldagroforestry.org/ http://rupes.worldagroforestry.org 2004 paper now part of Harvard’s Sustainability Science reader
GRP6 Highlights_3 Progress on drivers of tree cover change Red above Blue means increasing deforestation rates Strict -- Loose forest concept
Tree cover transition The schematic forest (or tree cover) transi‐ tion can have a wide‐ ning phase, when loss of natural forest exceeds tree planting and a contracting phase when the reverse is true. Widening: area planted < area cleared ? Contracting: area planted > cleared
In the 1990’s loss of natural cover increased the amount of ‘low C‐ stock’ & low economic value land; tree (crop) planting was 28% of the loss of natural forest areaAfter 2000 planting of tree (crop)s equals 90% of concurrent loss of natural forest; the amount of low C‐stock & low economic value land decreases
In the CRP world, we will findour home in CRP6.3 (andCRP2)
Social Science CCER responseGRP6 is home to much of current ICRAF social science, with focus on•‘Rights & resource access’/ tenure•Multiple knowledge systems & K2A•Fairness vs Efficiency at multiple scales
GRP6 in relation to Science Q•GRP6/SEA + EA is well repre-sented in ICRAF’s track record of publications and multi-me-dia approaches to communi- cation to varied audiences•Several new PhD’s

GRP Funding pipeline• Both RUPES and PRESA are reaching end, discussions with SEA and EA ongoing for follow-up negotiations with IFAD• EU policy funding ended; revival possible?• Large Sulawesi project (9 M CAD) just approved• Finland/Waf still pending• Effective link with ASB/REALU as key to
Specific issues for BOTdiscussion• The sentinel landscape approach is close to our GRP6 heart and essential for regional involvement, but progress has been slower than we hoped (to be updated after Naivasha CRP6.1 & 6.3 meeting)
