Water and Mountains

FAO has been engaged in watershed management, forests and water and sustainable mountain development  since the 1970s. The Water and Mountains team is responsible for carrying out activities in these thematic areas

The Water and Mountains team provides technical assistance for the design and implementation of field projects, supports international processes and prepares technical guidance and information products. It has a strong presence at field level, especially in Africa, Near East, Central Asia and Latin America.

Through our work and projects, we aim to building resilient mountain communities and forest landscapes while ensuring the sustainable provision of ecosystem services especially in terms of water quality and supply.
