Focali - Forest, climate & livelihood research network

Focali (Forest, Climate, and Livelihood research network) is a Swedish research network focusing on forest/bio-energy, climate change and poverty issues. Several Swedish universities and institutions are represented in the network. The purpose is to contribute to the provision of relevant knowledge to Sida and other Swedish authorities for the effective use of forest operations to achieve climate-poverty targets. Focali also aims to increase the flow of relevant information between scientists, industry, government and civil society.

Focali has, since 2014, collaborated with the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI) under the theme "Forests, Landscapes and Food Security". The Swedish International Agricultural Network Inititative (SIANI) was initiated by Sida in 2009 to lay the foundation for effective development cooperation in the area of poverty reduction through sustainable agricultural production.

Our focus on forest and food is not primarily about the direct benefits of trees, such as fruits, but about the indirect and multiple benefits of trees in the landscape. Trade-offs between different land demands, forest tenure and consequences of land use changes will also be a part of this landscape perspective on forests and food security.
