Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

New FAO publication ‘Landscapes for life’

The ecosystems which provide the foundation for sustainable agriculture in productive landscapes and seascapes are being degraded, and their integrity disrupted, at unprecedented rates.

The global food supply and the livelihoods of the people managing these landscapes will depend, among other aspects, on our ability to strengthen the resilience of these systems, restore degraded lands, stabilize watersheds, maintain soil quality, improve ocean health, and manage freshwater habitats and coastal areas.

The new FAO Publication ‘Landscapes for life’ points the way forward, addressing sustainable land and water management as key elements for sustainable food and agriculture.
