  • Capacity Building Sustainable Land ManagementCapacity Building Sustainable Land ManagementMar 12, 2013
    Sustainable land management (SLM) involves the use of terrestrial resources and ecosystems e.g. soils, plants to provide goods and services e.g. food, drinking water, fuel, timber, without detriment to the long-term productive potential of these resources and their environmental functions. SLM is critical to minimizing and rehabilitating the effects of land degradation, and ensuring optimal use of resources for sustainable development and poverty alleviation.


Energy and environment are essential for sustainable development. The poor are disproportionately affected by environmental degradation and lack of access to clean affordable energy services. These issues are also global as climate change, loss of biodiversity and ozone layer depletion cannot be addressed by countries acting alone. Globally, UNDP helps countries strengthen their capacity to address these challenges at global, national and community levels, seeking out and sharing best practices, providing innovative policy advice and linking partners through pilot projects that help poor people build sustainable livelihoods.
