It has been observed recently that the majority of far-mers in North East India have shifted their attention towards traditional agroforestry practices owing to their economic and ecological values. We conducted an extensive survey in three districts of Arunachal Pra-desh, India, namely, Kra Daadi, Lower Subansiri and Papum Pare. The study focused on the imperative of agroforestry practices in terms of socio-economy, live-lihood, food security and the existing constraints ham-pering the development of agroforestry practices. The traditional agroforestry has replaced the old way of jhumming that registered a decline of at least 70%–80% during the last 15 years. The practice of tradi-tional agroforestry in this region displayed several so-cial, environmental and economic benefits leading to the growth of adoption for sustainable development.
