This volume provides an abundance of valuable information on emerging eco-friendly technology and its potential role in combating climate change via agroforesty. The volume begins by describing the recent understanding of the scenario of climate change and its issues and challenges and provides an in-depth analysis of the potential of agroforestry toward climate change mitigation and adaptation. Chapters address a wide range of techniques and methods for mitigating the negative aspects of climate change through agroforesty, such as vermicomposting, carbon sequestration, horticulture techniques, nutrient sequestration and soil sustainability, conservation of medicinal plant resources, silvipastoral systems, phytoremediation techniques, and more. The book also looks at livelihood security and the role of agroforestry.

Key features:

  • Provides updated information and recent developments in the field of climate change and agroforestry
  • Looks at a variety of eco-friendly methods being employed to help mitigate climate change through agroforesty
  • Provides recommendations and suggestions to build harmony between agroforestry and climate change
  • Discusses new insights on the role of agroforestry toward combating climate change as well as maintaining the sustainability of ecosystems
