Description

This study aims to provide trade-off assessment of restoration options for agriculture areas with yield and carbon sequestration information (see complete result at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.7937085). The study assesses biophysical productivity of current practices and potential management practices of tree crops cultivation that can increase the benefits to farmers’ livelihood while contributing to climate change mitigation and biodiversity. We focus on oil palm and rubber as they are of high importance for Indonesia both in terms of economic contribution as well as land area. Monoculture system for both commodities are modelled to provide information on potential biophysical productivity improvement that could result from the application of good agricultural practices. As management option alternatives, we assess the options of mixed-species systems combining oil palm and rubber each with cacao as agroforestry options.
