#ClimateChange is already degrading drylands areas.

If we continue on this path, conditions in drylands will become more extreme with more droughts, intense heat waves and strong winds.


Land restoration 🌲🌳🌴can reverse biodiversity loss and species extinction, and form a buffer against future crises.

Restoring degraded land brings

📊 economic resilience
👉 creates jobs
📈 raises incomes
🥗 increases food security

FAO in Africa Retweeted ·  
Agri-food systems must transform to be more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable to provide healthy diets for all.

Thank you @RUFORUMSec for today’s valuable dialogue ahead of the UN #FoodSystems Summit.

#ICYMI: Catch up on the ambitious $104m program targeting land degradation in Africa.

✔ bringing drylands under sustainable land management
✔ reducing greenhouse gas emissions
✔ benefitting local people

Water scarcity during droughts & dry seasons in Somalia has devastating impacts on people's livelihoods & food security.

With funds from Canada & the UK, @FAO & @WFP are helping to build communities' resilience by growing & selling food during difficult times.

Today marks the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought.

Let’s protect our soils whenever we can!

Composting is a very easy way to produce organic fertilizers that are very much needed in our soils.

Merci and thanks Canada!

African countries including DRC, Ethiopia, Niger and South Sudan are set to benefit from Canada's multi-million dollar contribution to FAO's COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme.
Thank you, Canada 🇨🇦, for channeling over USD 17 million to @FAO’s #COVID19 Response & Recovery Programme.

Together we will strengthen the resilience of food systems & livelihoods to build back better👉

The majority of children are found working in crop production, livestock, forestry, fisheries or aquaculture.

Ending child labour in all its forms will be decided in agriculture.

Cultivating fruits & vegetables can contribute to a better quality of life for family farmers & their communities.

June 17 marks the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought!

By making responsible choices in our diet and daily life, we can

🔺 protect land
🌊 save water and
🔴 reduce greenhouse gas emissions


In sub-Saharan Africa, the number of child labourers has risen over the past four years.

The rise is driven by;

🔴 population growth
🔴 recurrent crises
🔴 extreme poverty, and
🔴 inadequate social protection measures

As part of a #healthydiet, fruits and vegetables can help lower risk factors for non-communicable diseases, such as

🔸 overweight/obesity
🔸 chronic inflammation
🔸 high blood pressure, and
🔸 high cholesterol


Child labour in agriculture is on the rise again, with further deterioration foreseen due to #COVID19.

@FAO calls for this scourge to be tackled through the transformation of agri-food systems.

FAO in Africa Retweeted ·  
In @TurkanaCountyKE in partnership with @MOH_Kenya, these are demonstration farms for vegetables & fruits as part of nutrition education for vulnerable households.
They learn:

🥬dietary diversification,
🥬supplementary feeding.
