By Country: Thailand
The negative impacts of climate change leads to reduce availability of natural resources and declining productivity. This causes food security crisis and increases poverty. Sustainable land management (SLM) is helping to increase average productivity, reducing seasonal fluctuations in yields, support diversified production and improved incomes. SLM is simply about people looking after the land – for the present and for the future. The main objective of SLM is to integrate people’s coexistence with nature over the long-term, so that the provisioning, regulating, cultural and supporting services of ecosystems are ensured. In consequence, actions are needed to combat and mitigate such problems. One approach is to mainstream Sustainable Land Management (SLM) to help resolve land degradation due to inappropriate, unsustainable and overuse of land. Challenges include 3 issues; 1)
policies, strategies and institutions; 2) economics and finance; and 3) knowledge and technology, of which should be integrated by knowledge management, capacity building and partnership.
