The <i>State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) 2016 “Forests and Agriculture – Land Use Challenges and Opportunities” </i> examines the competing demands for land for forests and agriculture; and the relationship between forest cover changes and food security. In particular, forests and food security highlight the possibility to meet food security objectives while maintaining or increasing existing forests. FAO has identified about ten countries that have either significantly reduced their deforestation rate or have maintained/increased their forest cover and, at the same time, have increased food security since 1990. Georgia case study was carried out to analyze the key factors that have contributed to these positive trends. </p>The goal of this document is to put together and to analyze information and materials which have played significant role in improving forest condition and food safety during last 25 years. In the limits of this short-term task it is impossible to carry out full detailed analysis. Nevertheless, the opportunity to use results of earlier researches has greatly helped correct formulation of basic problems for further discussion.</p> </p> <p>Read the full report of the <a href=" "><i>State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) 2016</i></a></p><p>Read the <a href=" "><i>Brochure</i></a> of the <i>State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) 2016</i>.</p><p>Read the <a href=" "><i>Flyer</i></a></p><p>See the <a href=" "><i>Infographic</i></a></p><p>Visit the <a href=""><i>Sofo 2016 webpage</i></a></p><p>Read the other six country case studies:</p> <ul> <li><a href=" ">Costa Rica</a></li> <li><a href=" ">Chile</a></li> <li><a href=" ">Gambia</a></li> <li><a href=" ">Ghana</a></li> <li><a href=" ">Tunisia</a></li> <li><a href=" ">Viet Nam</a></li> </ul>
