Infonet Biovision Publications Enhancing Tree Planting - Consultancy Report
Infonet-Biovision, an initiative of Biovision Farmer Communication Programme, provides small-scale farmers, communities, NGOs, and trainers with practical information and knowledge on simple, workable and ecologically compatible practices and methods that sustain farming and household incomes. It offers an internet platform with operational knowledge developed by local capacities, farmers, and scientists. The content is largely need-based and defined by farmer groups and proof-read and completed by experts.
There is a countrywide increased concern about frequent droughts and increasingly hostile climate. This is causing increased awareness, interest for, and planting of trees at farm level. This cannot only be seen in the landscape and on farms but also visible through changes by an increasing number of tree nurseries being established through various community supported initiatives.
