Abstract: Current and future challenges associated with land degradation and climate change will have a significant impact on agroforestry practices with far reaching consequences for system productivity and biodiversity, ecosystem services and food security (McNeely and Schroth 2006). Such challenges will be paralleled with shifting farmer migration patterns, particularly as greater out-migration occurs in drought-prone regions. We examined the indirect impact of farmer movement and migration on agroforestry management practices. Communication patterns are important to the transfer of informal and formal sourced agrarian information, including agroforestry management practices (Crona and Bodin 2006; Hoang et al 2006; Isaac et al 2007). By determining communication network structures and network characteristics, particularly kin relationships, we assessed migratory affects on agroforestry management with a social network work analysis approach.
