The International Institute for Food, Agriculture, and Development is actively working on a USAID-funded agroforestry project to develop wood lots and fruit crops in Afghanistan. Cornell is working in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Afghanistan, a New York-based NGO. One project, Private and Community Forestry for Natural Resource Management: Sustainable Strategies for Village- and Farmer-Based Forestry Initiatives, hopes to increase private tree cultivation and profitability.
