Objective 4 of the AGFORWARD project is to promote the wider adoption of appropriate agroforestry systems in Europe through policy development and dissemination.
The detailed objectives of work-package 8 are :
- To describe the current extent of agroforestry policy measures across the European Union.
- To determine the success of the above policy measures in promoting agroforestry across Europe and other temperate areas.

The outputs of this work-package include:
- A series of maps describing agroforestry-related policies across the EU between 2007 and 2013. (report now available)
- A report on the extent and success of policy measures to promote agroforestry across Europe. (report now available)
- A report on how policy can help the appropriate development and uptake of agroforestry.
