The SARD-M Project provides a bridge between Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development (SARD) and Mountain issues. The project will facilitate coordination and strengthen synergies with related projects in both of these fields and avoid duplication. Strong coordination of projects conducted by FAO, other United Nations agencies and the civil society will better serve the mountain populations and efficiently promote sustainable livelihoods.
The following list of SARD and mountain-related projects does not claim to be exhaustive.
SARD-related projects and initiatives
Given its leading role on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development (SARD), various FAO departments have developed projects in this field. The Organization is currently strengthening the coherence and impact of its work on SARD, through a cross-sectoral approach promoting inter-departmental coordination and synergy.
