    Forests, trees and woodlands cover almost one-third of the Earth’s land area. They are a crucial source of food and income for more than a billion people around the globe. They provide a variety of wood and non-wood products and vital ecosystem services – preventing erosion from wind and water, preserving water quality, shading crops and livestock, absorbing carbon which contributes to countering climate change, and providing habitat for many species of plants and animals, thus helping to conserve the planet’s biological diversity.

El cambio climático está socavando los medios de subsistencia y la seguridad alimentaria de las poblaciones rurales pobres.

    There is a urgent need for a better understanding of the risks of soil degradation and their geographical distribution as well as a better knowledge of where degradation occurs at present. it would be desirable to combine soil conservation activities with other elements for increasing crop production.Erosion, salinity and alkalinity and the loss of soil fertility seriously reduce the natural potential of soils to produce food fibres. During the meeting, many criteria to assess the various types of soil degradation were outlined by the experts.

    Le monde s’est engagé à éliminer la pauvreté extrême et la famine d’ici à 2030 et s’engage résolument sur la voie de la durabilité. Les changements climatiques risquent d’anéantir les progrès accomplis jusqu’à présent face à la faim et à la pauvreté. Si l’on ne lutte pas contre eux, ils pourraient mettre en péril la capacité des systèmes agricoles à assurer la sécurité alimentaire à l’échelon mondial. Les changements climatiques mettent en danger les moyens de subsistance et la sécurité alimentaire des pauvres qui vivent en milieu rural.

    This publication has been prepared as a background paper in view of the UN conference on the human environment that was held in Stockholm in 1972. This background document had contribution from UNESCO, IAEA and WHO. While the demand for land for land increases at a very rapid rate through population growth, technological progress and industrial development, soil resources remain fixed. The maintenance of their productivity is therefore of paramount importance.

    Extensive grazing is the predominant form of land use on at least a quarter of the world’s land surface, in which livestock are raised on food that comes mainly from rangelands. Extensive grazing differs from crop or forestry production, in which the produce remains in situ whilst growing. Evaluation for extensive grazing, unlike that for cropping or forestry, must take into account the production of both grazing forage, termed primary production, and the livestock that feed on this forage, termed secondary production.
