It is hoped that in 2015 world leaders will agree on a set of Sustainable Development Goals and set targets for progress on poverty reduction, security of water, energy and food, climate resilience, livelihoods, governance and gender equity. These goals can be met at least in part by productive landscapes that include forests, trees and agroforestry (Mbow, van Noordwijk et al. 2014). An important part of the agenda are the opportunities and challenges of balancing trade-offs in managing for productive and sustainable landscapes that provide integrated local, national and global benefits (Sunderland, Ehringhaus and Campbell 2008).
