dc.description.abstract"The Agroforestry Division of the new Agri-Environment Services Branch of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada is in transition from a predominantly regional focus to a national role in providing leadership and expertise in agroforestry research, development and delivery across Canada. In its expanded role, the Agroforestry Division seeks to enhance agroforestry practices through the development of partnerships with regional and local agroforestry interests. National coordination will assist to identify and prioritize research needs, develop and publish technical materials, and to establish demonstration sites to promote agroforestry as an economically viable and sustainable agricultural practice. However, many challenges exist in the expansion to a national role. This document will provide a history of the existing Division, its structure and the issues of functioning as a national organization."--From Introduction.eng
