    The 3rd World Congress on Agroforestry will be held in Delhi, India, 10 - 14 February 2014. The Congress is co-hosted by the World Agroforestry Centre and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. The Congress will shape the next steps in the field of integrative science, transformative change in landscapes, tree improvement, innovative tree-based value chains, debates on global and local sustainability, reform of land and tree tenure and holistic education.

    Building on the legacy of the 2nd congress in 2009, the 3rd World Congress on Agroforestry 2014 will act as a springboard to accelerate the impacts of agroforestry, build people's livelihoods, increase the vitality of the landscape and drive the adoption of large-scale innovations.

    The Congress, entitled ‘Trees for Life: Accelerating the Impacts of Agroforestry’, will draw over 1200 selected participants from the private, research and development sectors to share the current state of knowledge and accelerate the positive financial, environmental and social impacts of agroforestry.

    Registration is now open for the World Congress on Agroforestry 2014 (WCA2014), through the website (https://b-com.mci-group.com/Registration/WCA2014.aspx).

    Abstracts of papers and posters should be submitted through the website. The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2013.

    Further information can be found on the website www.wca2014.org.
