Most of the world’s poor live in rural areas. Hunger and food insecurity above all are expressions of rural poverty. Reducing rural poverty, therefore, is central to ‪#‎UNFAO‬’s mission: http://bit.ly/174nris

1/3 of all soils are degraded, due to erosion, compaction, soil sealing, salinization, soil organic matter and nutrient depletion, acidification, pollution and other processes caused by unsustainable land management practices.

The International Year of Soils #IYS2015 aims at raising full awareness among civil society and decision makers about the profound importance of soil for human life: http://bit.ly/1t9s2cW

Given the threats posed by climate change, we need to adjust farming practices to make them more adaptive and resilient to environmental pressures, while at the same time decreasing farming's own impacts on the environment: http://bit.ly/1D2GyCZ

The multiple roles of ‪#‎soils‬ often go unnoticed. Soils don’t have a voice, and few people speak out for them. They are our silent ally in food production ‪#‎IYS2015‬: http://bit.ly/1t9s2cW

#Biodiversity for #food and #agriculture is among the earth’s most important resources. Crops, livestock, aquatic organisms, forest trees, micro-organisms and invertebrates make up the web of biodiversity upon which the world’s food production depends: http://bit.ly/1fBcfxs

With over 16.5 million people dependent on agriculture in the Kagera basin (Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda), the soils and ecosystems are facing mounting pressures.
Over the last 4 years, a ‪#‎UNFAO‬- Global Environment Facility programme has helped generate local, national and global food security and improve rural livelihoods through an integrated ecosystems approach: http://bit.ly/1wrHNPw

Smoked fish is a vital source of food and income for many African coastal communities.
A new and easy-to-assemble fish drying technology pioneered by #UNFAO is helping to reduce health hazards, improve food safety and quality, improve working conditions and cut down food losses in West African fishing villages: http://bit.ly/1AJJ3fo

About 20 million people are still affected by food insecurity in the Sahel, and are likely to see their situation deteriorate rapidly in 2015. Among them, 2.6 million people already require urgent food assistance. USD 116 million are sought to protect livelihoods and support agricultural activities: http://bit.ly/1LgY7pa
