How can we produce more with less? FAO launches online discussion forum on sustainable intensification of horticulture crops

With this discussion forum, FAO aims to bring together experts of all levels from scientists who study the potential of sustainable crop production, to the practitioners who apply sustainable horticultural practices – to exchange their experiences, new findings and challenges faced. FAO recently launched three “Save and Grow” guidebooks accessible at http://www.fao.org/ag/save-and-grow/. These guides illustrate how the adoption of innovative and ecosystem-based approaches can contribute to the sustainable intensification of agricultural production

Future generations will rely more and more on resilient food supply systems because of known challenges such as a growing world population, urbanization, land degradation, and climate change. We need to find ways to produce more from the same area of land while conserving natural resources, reducing negative impacts on the environment and enhancing natural capital and the flow of ecosystem services.
