Access to clean water is a growing challenge worldwide. Landscape restoration can provide an effective solution while doing good for people and nature.
Learn how we can guide people to understand the complex Forest-Water relationships and take them into consideration in forest and landscape management
Maize yields in sub-Saharan Africa have been at the lower end of the global range for decades. A new thesis by Emilio Magaia, PhD candidate at the Department of Soil and Environment at SLU presents a way to improve water use efficiency in semi-arid regions through better soil and water management.
Anyone who has walked outside on a sunny day knows that forests and trees matter for temperature, humidity and wind speed. Planting trees speaks to concerns about climate change -- but the directly important aspects of the tree-climate relationships have so far been overlooked in climate policy where it relates to forest. That, at least, is the conclusion of a new review.
Dr. Stanley Liphadzi from the Water Research Commission, South Africa, provides examples of antibiotic leakages from livestock production into water systems. Part of the seminar "Antimicrobial...
There is a close link between the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation and the human right to food. Safe drinking water and sanitation are crucial for human health and nutritional up-take, while water and plant nutrients (often in the form of fertilizers) are indispensable for producing food.
New paper by Stockholm Environment Institute reviews existing methods for assessing livestock water resource use, recognizing that water plays a vital role in global food supply and that livestock production systems consumes a large amount of the available water resources.
Global Committee on Food Security (CFS) requested the High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) to analyze the latest evidence-based information on the use of water for food and nutrition and synthesize it into actionable recommendations for public and private sectors as well as for civil society.
The first day will be devoted to sharing knowledge between scientists and practitioners from the policy and management community. This feedback will then be taken further during the second day by...
In the tropics, there are vast areas of degraded land, which can be restored back into higher and sustainable production with tree planting. In this way previously degraded lands could play a key role for improved food security and at the same time offer various other benefits.
