Purpose: China has focused its conservation efforts on the establishment of protected areas. However, the sustainable use of its agroforest systems provides a valuable but unquantified addition to this strategy by providing havens for biodiversity. The importance of such systems will increase as natural habitats become further fragmented. The project seeks to quantify and maximise this potential, thereby helping China to meet its commitments under the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
