World agriculture: towards 2010. A FAO study

This book is a revised and somewhat expanded version of the official FAO document Agriculture: Toward 2010 prepared in 1992 and early 1993 for, and considered by, the Twenty-Seventh Session of the FAO Conference in November 1993. It is the latest forward assessment by FAO of possible future developments in world food and agriculture, including the crops, livestock, forestry and fisheries sectors. The assessment is no mere exercise in world food demand and supply projections but rather the product of multidisciplinary work covering the many technical, socioeconomic and policy facts of food and agriculture. The focus is on food security, natural resources and sustainability. The book contains the most comprehensive evaluation of the agricultural potential of the land resources of the developing countries available anywhere.

FELSM: An international framework for evaluating sustainable land management

(Extract from Foreword)This working document has been prepared as a focus for future work on the development of an International Framework for the Evaluation of Sustainable Land Management (FESLM). The Framework is designed as a structured, logical pathway for making decisions on whether or not a carefully defined form of land management is likely to prove sustainable in a defined situation over a defined period of time. The logical pathway approach was selected because our knowledge of sustainability will always be imperfect. This approach assists us in making decisions that can be substantiated without having to wait for all the final data.
