European agriculture faces a sustainability crisis. Join the 2024 European Agroforestry Conference to explore how trees on farms can address climate change, biodiversity loss, and more!

Agroforestry – regenerating landscapes and diversifying production in Europe

European agriculture needs to evolve in the face of climate change, a reduction in the abundance of insects and farmland birds, pollution, and the need to improve human health. Greater and more effective use of agroforestry, the integration of woody perennials with livestock and/or crop production, is a proven means to maintain food production whilst addressing these issues.

Agroforestry is an important regenerative agriculture practice which can achieve greater diversity or quantity of outputs with fewer non-farm inputs, whilst improving a farm’s resilience to climate change. Well-designed agroforestry systems, adapted to local conditions, can also enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services at the landscape level. Nevertheless, the re-adoption of agroforestry in Europe is currently challenging, despite the interest of both farmers and policy makers.

To address these urgent issues on the European agenda, the European Agroforestry Federation (EURAF) welcomes you to the vibrant city of Brno for the European Agroforestry Conference 2024. This conference will encompass practical and research sessions addressing the opportunities and challenges of promoting the integration of trees with agriculture. Plenary discussions, thematic oral and poster sessions and workshops will provide participants with new ideas to enhance the role that agroforestry can play in diversifying production, improving soil health and biodiversity, combating climate change, creating profitable enterprises and regenerating landscapes in Europe.

The event will take place from 27 to 31 May 2024 in Brno, Czech Republic.
