    There is an urgent need in the developing and under developed nations to restore green cover in their countries.And there is a need for a common policy that can be applied to all these countries.

    With Global warming , changes in Climate the policy framed should not be confined to archives but be implemented .

    my name is Sara Feldbauer and I am a german student of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Uiversity in Munich. I have to write a work about agroforestry in Mt. Banahwa in the Philippines and have to find out if the social ecological system framework is useful for this region. So do you have any information and datas about this subject?
    Thanks and best wishes,
