    We propose a flexible and adaptable framework to assist the quick design of models dealing with the durability of the extensive livestock systems at the territorial scale. This metamodel results from the collaborative design starting from MAS developed on 7 sites in Latin America, France and Senegal. It is composed of four packages: Agent, Community, Space and Vegetation-Herd. We illustrate these packages with examples extracted from the various models. The role of this tool is discussed in order to show its advantages and its limits

    The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security explicitly mention pastoralists as users of the Guidelines and as targets of capacity building. Despite the historical and often ongoing marginalization of pastoralists, this technical guide has been developed in response to emerging opportunities to support pastoralists and to strengthen their land and resource rights.

    大约三年前,各国领导人就联合国《2030可持续发展议程》及其17个可持续发展目标达成一致,自此该议程和目标成为指导全球发展政策的核心框架。本版《世界森林状况》旨在加强我们对森林及其可持续经营如何为实现多项可持续发展目标做出贡献的理解。对世界森林而言,时间紧迫:我们必须开展跨部门协作,把利益相关方集合起来,尽快采取行动。《2018年世界森林状况》确定了可采取的行动,以增强森林和树木为加快实现可持续发展目标所必需做出的贡献。现在必须采取措施以更有效地与私有部门合作,必须对非正规部门进行改革,以实现更广泛的经济、社会和环境效益。七十年前,当联合国粮农组织完成其第一次世界森林资源评估的时候,主要关注在于是否有足够的木材来满足全球需求;而现在,我们则认识到森林和树木具有更为显著的全球意义。《2018年世界森林状况》第一次就森林和树木对景观和生计的贡献进行了评估。本报告目的是让更多读者了解森林和树木对人类、地球和子孙后代的重大意义。

    The present study, by the Chief of the Agrarian and Water Law Section of the FAO Legislation Branch, is intended to explore in greater depth the value of legislation to the land use planning process. It is, on the one hand, an exploration of the ways in which legislation serves to provide the structural underpinnings for and connections between the technical disciplines which have long been associated with the land use planning effort.

    The massive increase in demand for woodfuel for cooking caused by sudden influxes of refugees and other displaced people is usually the main driver of forest degradation and deforestation in displacement settings. It places enormous pressure on nearby forests and woodlands and is often a source of tension between the host and displaced communities. A lack of sufficient cooking fuel also has an impact on the nutrition and health of vulnerable people in such settings.

    Geospatial datasets and analysis techniques based on geographic information systems (GIS) have become indispensable tools in the planning, implementation and evaluation of a wide range of development programmes, including actions addressing sustainable agriculture and rural development. The growing volume of spatially explicit environmental information, combined with the widening utilization of GIS, allows ecological and socioeconomic factors to be integrated more fully into the decision-making process, thus laying the foundation for a holistic approach to development.
