Impact of carbon value on profitability of improved fallow agroforestry systems in Kigezi highlands, UgandaFaculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 2004The economic advantages of improved agro forestry fallow systems over traditional continuous cropping systems are important tools that can be used to influence the choice of land use options at household levels. In Kigezi highlands Uganda, the upper parts of farmers’ crop field terraces are degraded due to continuous cropping.DocumentDepartment for International Development, UK, 2004This draft framework defines DFID research priorities for the next two years and gives an indication of the longer term directions of the programme.The DFID Central Research Department currently (2004) spends around £80m per year on research.DocumentCenter for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, 2004Incorporating ozone precursors and particle emissions in future climate policy agreements could improve the level of cost-effectiveness, but would also add complexity and complications to negotiation, reporting and implementation.
