The 2022 edition of The State of the World’s Forests explores the potential of three forest  pathways for achieving green recovery and tackling environmental crises, including climate change and biodiversity loss against the backdrop of the Glasgow Leaders’ Declaration on Forests and Land Use and the pledge of 140 countries to eliminate forest loss by 2030 and to support restoration and sustainable production and consumption.
In 1961, FAO and UNESCO began the project of the Soil Map of the World at a scale of 1:5 000 000. The project was completed over 20 years and 19 map sheets were produced. To showcase the collaboration between soil scientists, the GSP decided to scan them in HD and to make them available online again.
FAO is deeply concerned about the food security situation in Ukraine. The war that began on 24 February 2022 has caused extensive damage and loss of life in key population centres, spread across rural areas, and sparked massive displacement. As of 23 March, more than 3.6 million people1 had been forced to abandon their homes and flee across borders to safety. Millions more are internally displaced. The violence has escalated rapidly, and it remains extremely difficult to predict the evolution of the conflict and its effect on lives, livelihoods, food security and nutrition.
With immediate assistance, FAO can support smallholder farmers throughout the country who choose to stay, including internally displaced people and host families, to plant their fields, save their livestock and produce food. Through the Rapid Response Plan, FAO will immediately inject multi‑purpose cash assistance to address urgent needs, and, where needed and possible, combined with agriculture-based livelihood in-kind support to produce nutritious food.
FAO is staying and delivering in Ukraine. Ongoing work has been pivoted to scale up the humanitarian response. Senior staff have been deployed to the country, while regional and headquarters teams dedicated to Ukraine have also been reinforced.
