TropiTree contains the assembled expressed transcripts from an RNA-seq study of a set of 24 important tropical tree species, along with the microsatellites discovered within them and primer pairs designed to the microsatellite markers.
This tool enables you to select useful tree species for planting anywhere in Africa using Google Earth. In 2012, we prepared an updated version of this tool, especially enhancing the information provided in the "species selector" spread sheets.
At the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), we see that the future of trees is on farms, but what will that future hold if farmers do not have access to high quality seed and seedlings? The opportunity for significant economic development will be missed.
The 5Capitals toolkit provides those interested in value chain development with an innovative framework for assessing outcomes and impacts.The framework focuses on understanding the needs and circumstances of smallholders and local enterprises engaged in value chain development and helping stakeholders in value chain development to design interventions that better respond to these actors.
This book provides helps readers to better understand the options available when selecting a guide, or tool, for value chain development (VCD). The book compares the concepts and methods endorsed and assesses the strengths and limitations of the guides for steering development practice.
'Orphan crops' are African food crops such as millet, sorghum and cassava, among many others that are primarily grown for subsistence as they are not commercially viable. This fact has made researchers and industries to neglect them.
Land Use Planning for Low Emission Development Strategy (LUWES) is a platform for developing a multiple stakeholder decision-making process to establish land use plans for sustainable development, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land-based activity while simultaneously maintaining economic growth.
World Agroforestry (ICRAF) is a centre of science and development excellence that harnesses the benefits of trees for people and the environment. Leveraging the world’s largest repository of agroforestry science and information, we develop knowledge practices, from farmers’ fields to the global sphere, to ensure food security and environmental sustainability...read more
