The REFOREST project aims to find solutions to overcome the main obstacles to the expansion of European agroforestry. The project mission is to support innovation, exchange knowledge, and provide new solutions that will enable farmers in the EU and associated countries to meet various goals such as food production, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity.
The great news is that the main coordinator of this project is FFWS CZU. The consortium includes 14 institutions across Europe.
