AbstractThe paper reviews the "best-bet" agroforestry systems for the three major upland ecosystems within Asian watersheds: forest margins, Imperata grasslands, and permanently farmed hillslopes. The environmental impacts of complex agroforests, smallholder timber and fruit tree production systems, improved indigenous fallow management systems, and contour vegetative strip systems are discussed. It then examines selected watershed management projects in Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia in order to draw conclusions on the effective pathways toward effective land husbandry and local natural resource management. Highlights the application of the concept of community landscape mosaics as a tool.
