Valuing Agroforestry Systems
Editors: Alavalapati , Janaki R. Evan Eds. The primary objective of this book is to offer practical means for strengthening the economics and policy dimension of the agroforestry discipline. It is our belief that these methodologies help agroforestry students and professionals conduct rigorous assessment of economic and policy aspects of agroforestry systems and to produce less biased and more credible information.
Furthermore, the economic and policy issues explored in the book — profitability, environmental benefits, risk reduction, household constraints, rural development, and institutional arrangements — are central to further agroforestry adoption in both tropical and temperate regions. All of the chapters in this volume were subject to rigorous peer review by at least one other contributing author and one external reviewer.

Finally, Chapter 16 summarizes the main results, discusses the status of economic research in agroforestry, and identifies opportunities for further research in economic and policy of agroforestry. This book provides a unique and valuable resource for assisting upper division undergraduate and graduate students and rural development professionals to conduct rigorous assessment of economic and policy aspects of agroforestry systems and to produce less biased and more credible information.
