Video Rating: / 5 This Agroforestry Production Development Tool (APD Tool) is a decision making and planning tool developed with input and feedback from stakeholders including farmers, consultants and other experts and developed by UBC Farm in partnership with Brinkman & Associates Reforestation. The tool helps assess many levels of new agroforestry endeavours, including environmental, social and economic considerations, labour and cash flow planning. Funding for the British Columbia Agroforestry Industry Development Initiative (AIDI) has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP). In British Columbia, this program is delivered by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC. The Province of British Columbia provides in-kind support to the AIDI. The AIDI is administered by the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations with the guidance of the Agroforestry Management Committee.
