Top of page

Overpopulation, deforestation, overgrazing, and improper cropping methods are putting lands and soils in jeopardy in many parts of the Third World. Shot on location in Costa Rica, Nepal, and Nigeria, Trees of Plenty examines three projects supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). It illustrates how researchers are finding ways for foresters, agronomists and farmers to work together to save the soil from further deterioration, thereby ensuring food supplies for future generations.
