he global recession and climate change present significant challenges to sustainable forest management. In response to these interconnected crises, community-based agroforestry has emerged as a promising strategy. This research aims to explore the potential of community-based agroforestry as a viable approach for managing forests, mitigating the effects of the global recession, and adapting to climate change. The research will investigate the benefits of agroforestry in terms of sustainable resource management, diversification of income sources, and enhanced resilience to economic shocks. It will also examine the ecological benefits, such as carbon sequestration, biodiversity conservation, and soil improvement, provided by agroforestry practices. Furthermore, the study will analyze the socio-economic factors that influence the success and scalability of community-based agroforestry initiatives. It will identify the key enabling conditions, policy frameworks, and institutional arrangements necessary for the effective implementation of such systems. The findings of this research will contribute to a deeper understanding of the role of community-based agroforestry in sustainable forest management, particularly in the context of global recession and climate change. The results will inform policymakers, forest managers, and communities on the potential benefits and challenges of adopting agroforestry approaches and guide the development of strategies to promote their widespread adoption.
