Facing these challenges, the CSRio Seminar held on June 13, 2019, invited Felipe Villela to present the lecture “Agroforestry: agriculture that will feed the future”. He presented researches and works carried out in Global Agroforestry as a possibility to face them from using the Agroforestry Regenerative
