WOCAT - World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies

WOCAT (World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies) is an established global network which supports innovation and decision-making processes in Sustainable Land Management (SLM). In response to the need to formalise the previously informal global network a Framework Agreement defining the WOCAT Network as WOCAT International, and WOCAT Regional and National has been elaborated and legally safeguarded. In August 2014, the Consortium Partners officially signed the Agreement, which marks the start of a promising collaboration between the Consortium Partners and all partners of the WOCAT Network worldwide.

The overall goal of the WOCAT Network is to unite the efforts in knowledge management and decision support for up-scaling SLM among all stakeholders including national governmental and non-governmental institutions and international and regional organizations and programmes. The network provides tools that allow SLM specialists to identify fields and needs of action, share their valuable knowledge in land management, that assist them in their search for appropriate SLM technologies and approaches, and that support them in making decisions in the field and at the planning level and in up-scaling identified best practices (-> view WOCAT flyer -> view introductory presentation).

World Agroforestry Centre

The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is a CGIAR Consortium Research Centre. ICRAF’s headquarters are in Nairobi, Kenya, with five regional offices located in Cameroon, India, Indonesia, Kenya and Peru. 

The Centre’s vision is a rural transformation in the developing world as smallholder households strategically increase their use of trees in agricultural landscapes to improve their food security, nutrition, income, health, shelter, social cohesion, energy resources and environmental sustainability.

The Centre’s mission is to generate science-based knowledge about the diverse roles that trees play in agricultural landscapes, and to use its research to advance policies and practices, and their implementation, that benefit the poor and the environment.

The World Agroforestry Centre is guided by the broad development challenges pursued by the CGIAR. These include poverty alleviation that entails enhanced food security and health, improved productivity with lower environmental and social costs, and resilience in the face of climate change and other external shocks.

We receive our funding from about 50 different investors; including governments, private foundations, international organizations and regional development banks. Our work is conducted with partners from a range of scientific and development institutions.
