Description:

Ensuring food security and nutrition has always been at the heart of FAO?s work. The Organization?s constitution asserts that FAO?s member nations are determined, among other things, to ensure ?humanity?s freedom from hunger?. FAO?s Director-General, Jos? Graziano da Silva, wrote recently that ?ending extreme poverty and hunger is not merely desirable; it is the indispensable foundation of a new global society that is both open and fair?. Food security requires healthy, diverse ecosystems, and forests and trees outside forests therefore have an important role to play. To explore this role, FAO and its partners brought together, in May 2013, more than 400 experts from governments, civil society organizations, indigenous and other local communities, donors and international organizations from over 100 countries for the first global conference to specifically address the role of forests and trees outside forests in food security and nutrition ? the International Conference on Forests for Food Security and Nutrition. This edition of Unasylva presents articles arising from that conference.
