This book, Agroforestry and Climate Change: Issues and Challenges, addresses the diverse issues of climate change and how agroforestry systems can be effectively utilized to minimize these impacts and enhance sustainability. The volume begins by describing the recent understandings of the scenario of climate change and its issues and challenges and provides an in-depth analysis of the potential of agroforestry toward climate change mitigation and adaptation. Other chapters address a wide range of techniques and methods for mitigating the negative aspects of climate change through agroforesty, such as vermicomposting, carbon sequestration, horticulture techniques, nutrient sequestration and soil sustainability, conservation of medicinal plant resources, silvipastoral systems, phytoremediation techniques, and more. The book also looks at livelihood security and the role of agroforestry.

This volume provides a plethora of valuable information on emerging eco-friendly technology and its potential role in combating climate change via agroforesty.
