The World Agroforestry, JIRCAS, WeForest, Mekelle University and Oregon State University published a book entitled “Climate-smart agriculture: enhancing resilient agricultural systems, landscapes, and livelihoods in Ethiopia and beyond” focusing on the importance of sustainable land use technologies and approaches to sustain ecosystem services and livelihoods, especially in areas facing soil degradation and desertification. In a review by Jim Hallett, vice-chair of the Global Partnership for Forest and Landscape Restoration, he mentioned that although it has a narrow focus on agricultural livelihoods in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly, Ethiopia, the papers present a comprehensive view of what a large proportion of humanity faces.
