En route to the World Congress of Agroforestry 2014 in Delhi

My first post in this new blog comes to you from Dubai airport. I’m my way to Delhi for the 3rd World Congress of Agroforestry. It’s going to be an exciting week – I’ve been eagerly awaiting this conference for five years!  I will be presenting a poster on my Gliricidia drought experiment in Malawi in the “Adapting to Climate Change” session. I’m looking forward to catching up with old colleagues and making new connections. When I first became interested in agroforestry for climate change adaptation 10 years ago, almost no one was talking about it; now, it’s a mainstream topic and a big focus of this conference.

Never having been to Delhi before (or India, for that matter), I will have to do a lot of acclimatization, and I am lucky to have gotten advice from friends and colleagues. And I really hope I am able to go on the post-conference field trip to Jaipur, both to see some Indian agroforestry practices and just to see more of the scenery of the amazing country that I am about to visit! I’ll post updates from the conference soon.
