Donors and Partners meet to support Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Mountain Regions

A Donors’ and Partners’ Meeting took place on 30 April 2004 in FAO, Rome, to discuss FAO’s activities on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Mountain Regions (SARD-M) and examine a proposal for a multi-donor SARD-M Project.

This major international activity is developed to meet the challenge of agriculture and rural development particularly in mountain regions where high levels of malnutrition and hunger persist, while protecting the environment for present and future generations, and taking into account upland-lowland linkages.

Following an international conference on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development in Mountain Regions (Adelboden, Switzerland, June 2002), the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development (September 2002) and other recent international meetings, FAO has prepared a four-year multi-donor project to promote policies that favour sustainable agriculture and rural development in mountain regions.
