UN: Farming and forestry can deliver food security
Improving cooperation between nations' farming and forestry sectors will help reduce deforestation and improve food security, a UN report has suggested. Between 2000 and 2010, tropical nations saw net forest loss of 7 million hectares per year and a net gain in farmland of 6 million hectares.
Collaboration between the sectors would reduce environmental damage and improve social and economic outcomes, it said. The report says policies that recognize eco-services can help protect forests.
