FAO published "Forests for human health and well-being"
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has put online a new publication on forests and human well-being.
This 84-page file, “Forests for human health and well-being - Strengthening the forest-health-nutrition nexus”, is designed to expand the range of practitioners, policymakers and others who are involved in better understanding and sustainably managing forests and their broad contributions to human health and well-being – including nutrition, medicines and environmental benefits.
The publication contains a broad overview of the many ways in which forests touch our lives and a series of recommendations for people and institutions in a range of fields, including forestry, food security and nutrition, health, land use, and urban planning.
The report is available here.
