    En muchas partes del mundo la escasez cada vez mayor de agua y el mal uso de agua dulce plantea graves problemas al desarrollo sostenible. Como más de dos tercios del agua que se toma de los ríos, lagos y acuíferos de la tierra se destinan al riego, la agricultura se considera una válvula de seguridad del sistema. El capítulo especial de este año sobre política hídrica y agricultura analiza las repercusiones en las políticas de una mayor competencia, los conflictos, la escasez, el desperdicio, e l exceso de explotación y la degradación de los recursos hídricos.

What will be found on the following pages is a non-exhaustive compendium of strengths and limitations of local institutions involved in DRM and some suggestions for tapping the former and tackling the latter.

The modern thinking assigns to soil conservation a comprehensive and more positive role than in the past. in that sustained improvement complemented by the preservation of available resources should form the central concept. Soil conservation must not be limited solely to agricultural and grazing lands.

    This report is a shorter version of World agriculture: towards 2015/2030, FAO's latest assessment of the long-term outlook for the world's food supplies, nutrition and agriculture. It summarizes the projections, distills the messages and presents them for the generalist. The projections cover supply and demand for the major agricultural commodities and sectors, including fisheries and forestry. This analysis forms the basis for a more detailed examination of other factors, such as nutrition and undernourishment, and the implications for international trade.
