This book is part of an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and comprehensive effort to develop a practical guide to assist under-served and limited resource small farmers and woodland owners to adopt best management technologies in agroforestry. The book depicts step-by-step methods and principles on developing agroforestry practices for farmers and woodland owners for the purpose of enhancing the economic and environmental benefits of their farms and woodlands.

It also explains why planning is important in developing agroforestry practices; why larger landscape areas should be considered; describes ways in which conducting landscape assessments can be beneficial for agroforestry; and provides guidelines that may be used for the assessment and planning of agroforestry.
