One of the guiding mandates within the FAO Constitution is the following: “The Organization shall promote and, where appropriate, shall recommend national and international action with respect to: … the conservation of natural resources and the adoption of improved methods of agricultural production ...”. In many African countries, in addition to low yields, food production is limited by the availability of land and water resources. At an early stage, FAO has recognized the vast and varied potential contribution of a rational and sustainable exploitation of small wetlands and inland valleys to improve food security.
