About Us

The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is one of the 15 Centres of the CGIAR Consortium. ICRAF’s headquarters are based in Nairobi, Kenya. The organization has eight regional and sub-regional offices located in China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Peru and Cameroon. We conduct research in 28 other countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Our vision is a rural transformation in the developing world as smallholder households increase their use of trees in agricultural landscapes to improve food security, nutrition, income, health, shelter, social cohesion, energy resources and environmental sustainability.
