What you will learn

The objective is to examine the benefits and costs of agroforestry. Delegates will develop a simple cost benefit analysis model to examine:

  • How financial modelling can be used to examine the benefits of agroforestry systems in relation to arable and forestry systems from a land user perspective
  • How the introduction of valuation data can be used to examine how societal benefits are generated by agroforestry
  • What are the opportunities and barriers associated with agroforestry and how they can be overcome.

Core content
  • Financial modelling of the benefits and costs of agroforestry relative to arable cropping and forestry
  • Use of valuation data to examine societal benefits
  • Opportunities and barriers to agroforestry.
