About ASB

Who we Are
ASB is the only global partnership devoted entirely to research on the tropical forest margins. ASB is a global partnership between international and national agricultural research institutes, universities, non-governmental organizations, community and farmers’ groups working to address climate change while at the same time improving livelihoods in the agriculture-forest landscape of the humid tropics.

Our Goal
We aim to raise productivity and income of rural households in the humid tropics without increasing deforestation or undermining essential environmental services.

How We Are Organized
ASB has a multi-layer structure. Coordination and facilitation are provided by the ASB global coordination office, ASB regional facilitators and ASB national facilitators. The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) has hosted the global coordination office since inception, in Nairobi, Kenya.
