My Aloe Vera Cactus is dying! I think?!?! & Bull;
The plant needs a lot of sunlight and if you feed it, you should use a dedicated fertilizer for cacti and other succulent plants. Watering should be only occasional but, when it happens, it should be enough so that water runs out the bottom of the plant pot.

Strong> Sarah-Lan Mathez is an Ethnobiologist and social sciences researcher at the Latin American office of the International Center for Research (ICRAF) based in Lima, Peru. Has extensive work experience in research, development and environmental conservation projects in Latin America and Africa. For the past 10 years, he has worked in the Andean region on such topics as indigenous ecological knowledge, bio-cultural diversity, local innovations and agroforestry. He holds a doctorate in human geography from the University of Bern, Switzerland. Currently, she combines her work at ICRAF with the position of principal investigator at the Center for Development and Environment at the University of Bern and is an associate editor of Mountain Research and Development magazine.

The management of trees and shrubs in agricultural landscapes has great potential for the adaptation of small Andean farmers to climate change. Currently there is a great diversity of agroforestry practices and species. There is also a wealth of local knowledge on the agroecological functions of these trees. However, in the framework of the planning of adaptive measures, scientific research is necessary to analyze the appropriateness of agroforestry practices in particular socio-ecological contexts. The design of these actions should be done in a participative and inclusive way, considering in particular the gender aspects and preferences of small farmers.

Agroforestry for adaptation to climate change in the Andes: Designing Inclusive actions based on local knowledge


Gender and small shade coffee production in Nicaragua: Considerations for agroforestry and climate change interventions Research suggests that shade-grown coffee producers in Latin America derive significant subsistence and commercial value from non-coffee products from the agroforestry system, such as wood, fuel, and fruit. However, this research fails to address gender aspects, for example, how uses derived from the agroforestry system may vary between male and female producers. In addition, it is important to recognize the contributions of men and women to small production systems and their participation in relevant decision-making processes, to promote the successful adoption of climate-friendly sustainable practices, including those related to agroforestry.
