ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins

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