Agroforestry, Circular Agriculture and Mountain Futures

  1. 1. Agroforestry,Circular Agriculture and Mountain Futures Jianchu Xu, PhD Principal Scientist, World Agroforestry Centre Distinguished Professor, Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences Distinguished Professor, Institute of Animal Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences Presented at the 4th World Congress on Agroforestry, 20-22 May 2019, Montpellier, France
  2. 2. Agroforestry combines uses of soil that vary in dynamics and processes. It is an important step towards circular agriculture. All outputs of circular agriculture are things that people can use or sell.
  3. 3. Past Land Uses and Agricultural Futures  Agroforestry began sustainable use of soils and biomass  Circular Agriculture makes other nutrient cycles sustainable
  4. 4. Circular Agriculture means that Outputs from all processes are Inputs to other processes
  5. 5. Operational Projects by Mountain Futures Initiative (Company + Coops)  Mango Demonstration Park  Tropical Fruit Processing  Nursery and Living Gene Bank  Chicken/Livestock Farm  Insect Growth and Recycling  Amino Acid Fertilizer Production  Smart Mushroom Factory
  6. 6. Chickens, Insects and Amino Acid Fertilizer
  7. 7. Modern mushroom factory Smart Mushroom Factory
  8. 8. Natural fiber and fodder from Calotropis spp.
  9. 9. Pastoral, Solar and Fungi added to Agroforestry
  10. 10. Four Steps to restoring mountainscapes  Right trees for right places  Vertical planting of tree-shrub-grass  Tree-crop-livestock integration  Biomass-based circular agriculture
  11. 11. Social Goals and Solutions  Poverty eradication: Jobs, skills, and talents; cultivate farmers' cooperatives  Green Development: Innovate green technology, demonstrate circular agriculture and economies  Responsible consumption: Healthy and ethical consumption; construct new value chains  Zero emissions: New plantings, repair ecology, advocate healthy living, adapt to climate changes  Caring for Life: Protect biodiversity, maintain ecological and soil health, sustainable use of all resources
