On 10th February 2014 at the opening ceremony of the "World Congress on Agroforestry" held in Delhi, Hon'ble President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee announced a new landmark "National Agroforestry Policy" that will mainstream the growing of agroforestry on private farms to meet a wide range of development and environment related goals. India is the first nation in the world to adopt such a policy, which seeks to overcome many of the obstacles to the adoption of agroforestry in the country, including adverse policies, weak markets and a dearth of institutional finance. Agroforestry is currently practiced on 13.5 million hectares in India, but its potential is far greater. Already an estimated 65% of the country's timber and almost half of its fuel wood come from agroforestry plantations.
