Co-managing land and water for sustainable development
This paper represents a contribution to the Global Land Outlook in terms of discussing the complex dimensions of land and water resources management. Per the Terms of Reference for its production, the paper explains complex interactions between land and water resources management. Hot spots of land degradation as well as hot spots of water scarcity are presented in a series of global maps that have been previously published. Good practices for combatting land degradation, deforestation, and desertification as well as good practices for saving water in agriculture – particularly irrigation– are covered.
