​In this guide, FAO shows how agroforestry can be integrated into national strategies and how policies can be adjusted to local or regional conditions. It begins by laying out the case for agrofoestry, then moves into different aspects of policymaking, such as involving stakeholders, adapting or aboloshing out-of-date regulations, and creating incentives, markets, and rural governmance that will support trees as part of farming. The guide draws extensively on best practices examples, success stories, and lessons learned failures.
