Summary
The State of the World's Land and Water Resources for Food and Agriculture is FAO's first flagship publication on the global status of land and water resources and is the first time that a global, baseline status report has been made. The implications of the status and trends are used to advocate remedial interventions which are tailored to major farming systems within different geographic regions
