Can local, small-scale development successes can be scaled up to create wider, long-term benefits? Focusing on this question, the chapters in Development and Agroforestry, drawn from the acclaimed journal Development in Practice, explore the experiences of researchers and small-scale farmers involved in agroforestry development projects around the globe.

Peter Cooper heads the Environmental and Natural Resource Management Programme Area at the International Development Research Centre. Glenn L. Denning is director of ICRAF's Development Division. Deborah Eade is a writer and editor specializing in international development and humanitarian issues.
