COP17 petition

Sign the petition of Busy Trees to raise awareness of the role of trees in combatting climate change, eradicating poverty, preserving biodiversity.

Busy Trees logoThe World Agroforestry Centre and the Busy Trees Campaign want you to sign their petition to raise awareness of 'more trees on farms' among attendees at the UN COP 17 Climate Summit to be held in December 2011.

The petition states: "Agroforestry (a technique for mixing trees with traditional crops like maize and livestock) is a well-researched and simple technique that we know works. It can improve the lives of poor farmers worldwide, slow the conversion of natural forest into farmland, and even help us cope with many of the problems climate change is bringing. The Trees on Farms campaign is backed by agricultural scientists worldwide. Thank you all so much for supporting this important campaign."
