Do agroforestry systems make financial sense? Lessons from Vietnam and Indonesia

Abstract

Public and private bodies are often constrained from investing in sustainable land use (SLU) practices by a lack of data. Several agroforestry-based SLU practices have been developed to increase the range of sustainable management options available to farmers, but little information is available on their profitability. This policy brief compares prospective profitability of agroforestry systems (AF) and that of conventional practices by using a financial model that helps interested investors to assess the value for their investments.
