      COMPONENTS OF AN AGROFORESTRY SYSTEM Land Agroforestry is not a system of pots on a balcony or in a greenhouse.

While appropriate for all landholdings, this is especially important in the case of hillside farming where. Thirty percent of Sub-Saharan Africa's cropland has at least 10% tree cover. The available evidence indicates that agroforestry drives environmental change, which can improve a diverse range of pressing health concerns such as malnutrition, spread of infectious disease, prevalence of non-communicable disease, and human migration. This, however, does not always apply: transdisciplinary.
