Through its long-established contacts with national governments in the region, FAO has been in the position to give assistance and advice to national and regional governments from the local level upto the regional level. Frameworks have been developed in collaboration between FAO and several national governments that will guide the agriculture rehabilitation process. FAO was also involved in the development of framework for other sectors (notably fisheries and forestry) and has moved into the facilitation of people-centered Integrated Coastal Area Management in some of the affected regions.

For the issue of salinity a regional approach was adopted, which culminated in a regional framework for action for recovery of salt-affected soils and agriculture in a broader perspective. The regional framework can be downloaded from this page.
