Our objectives are to i) produce an evidence map of the knowledge and practices on such systems and produce a typology of the systems around the world.
We hypothesize that :
The characteristics of the system (complexity, cultivated species, etc.) and their performance differ according to agro-ecological zones.
The experiments detailed in the scientific literature represent only part of the diversity of systems observed locally.
Literature review, Evidence map and meta-analysis of Horticulture-Agroforestry systems in the tropics.
Objective : Global and exgaustive assessment of scientific available knowledge on agroforestry-horticultural systems.
Prospecting campaign and analysis of experts and farmers’ knowledge on clove-Agroforestry systems
Objective : Assessment of farmer knowledge and practices on agroforestry-horticultural systems in Madagascar, Mayotte and the Comoros
An open-acess literature database on scientific knowledge on horticulture-Agroforestry systems.
A precise description ok knowledge and knowledge gaps on theses systems
A Quantification of the performance of the systems
A precise typology of Horticulture-Agroforestry systems in the tropics
A quantification based on probabilistic expert elicitation of the performance of clove-tree agroforestry systems in Madagascar
Creation of a multi-institutional working group on horticultural -agroforestry systems
