About the Book

Bangladesh is the most densely populated country of the world. It has 6.5% forest cover of its total land. Deforestation is very acute in Bangladesh. The government of Bangladesh has initiated some agroforestry related social forestry programs with the participation of local people. The main strategy of these programs is to rehabilitate encroached forest land and to satisfy people's food, wood and other needs.To explore the contributions of participatory agroforestry, studies were made in three agroforestry projects. The data were collected on: productivity of the projects, income of the participants, landuse and land tenure systems, socio-economic status of the projects participants. Project participants and expert persons were interviewed and data were analyzed in quantitative and qualitative ways. The economic conditions of the participant families have been improved. Policy recommendations are presented to capitalize on these successes. Though agroforestry intervention has great promise, it faces numerous constraints in its implementation.
