DescriptionThe World Agroforestry Centre (formerly the International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF)) is one of sixteen agricultural research centres which makes up the global network known as the CGIAR (Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research). Established in 1977, the World Agroforestry Centre conducts research in agroforestry, in partnership with national agricultural research systems with a view to developing more sustainable and productive land use. The focus of its research is countries/regions in the developing world, in particular the tropics. The Centre also organises group training courses on agroforestry information management for the library and information personnel of collaborating institutions. The Web site describes the Centre's aims and programmes, and provides databases that may be searched online including the Agroforestree (AFT) Database, which is a species reference and selection guide for agroforestry trees, the Tree Seed Suppliers Directory, and Botanic Nomenclature Database. Also available are corporate reports, latest news, staff list and current jobs. Practical guidelines and manuals for research and community nurseries may be viewed online or downloaded (in PDF). A list of print publications, posters, and training materials is also given.
