This guide was created following a request by African farmers who wanted to engage in agricultural practices that are more respectful of their environment and more sustainable. It was designed as a support tool for all farmers and technicians wanting to develop agroecology and agroforestry in tropical wet zones.

After a brief reminder of the current context and issues of agroecology, it provides technical information generated by experience in four “fields” (the Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar, Cambodia and India). The first part presents the various agroecological techniques that can be easily and quickly put in place. The second describes the plants used to implement these techniques.

Abundantly illustrated and very operational, this guide should make it possible to test these agroecological practices and adapt them to suit various contexts (social, agronomic, climatic, etc.).
