Since 2002, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture (BMEL) supports projects of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to erradicate hunger and malnutrition through a Bilateral Trust Fund (BTF).

They are planned together with the FAO and structured in accordance with Germany’s government development policy guidelines, based on its support framework.

Many SDG targets have direct or indirect links to forests and landscapes (particularly under...

A network of Civil Society Organizations around the world, with the technical support of FAO, issued this The People’s Manual on the Guidelines on Governance of Land, Fisheries and Forests in an effort to further the implementation at grassroot levels of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests  (VGGT). This manual is a pedagogical and didactic guide to ease people’s understanding of the Guidelines and to provide a practical approach on how to use them. The People’s Manual is based on the precepts of popular education and was elaborated through a collective and participatory...
