Biography

Nguyen Mai Phuong, a researcher at World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), is pursuing a PhD. in Agroforestry with Fergus Sinclair and Tim Pagella at Bangor University. Her research focuses on identifing a suite of agroforestry options in relation to the local natural and socio-economic and policy context of Vietnam, especially the North West region. The underlying goal of the study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of key agro-ecological contexts and agroforestry options for smallholder farmers in Vietnam. The study is linked to on-going efforts to spatially characterize common agroforestry throughout Vietnam and the "Agroforestry for Livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Northwest Vietnam" (AFLI).
