Especies de agrobiodiversidad con potencial para la seguridad alimentaria

La agrobiodiversidad presente en los ecosistemas de la cuenca media del río Mazá, Guatemala está relacionada estrechamente con los medios de vida de las comunidades. La experiencia a través de los años en las prácticas de cultivo y la transmisión de saberes tradicionales de generación en generación, han permitido que estos sistemas de agrobiodiversidad tengan características que les ayudan a hacer frente a cambios en el clima, por lo que han desarrollado diferentes niveles de resiliencia.

Environmental Sustainability As part of the dutch WASH Alliance’s ‘FIETS’ strategy

What do you need to pay attention to when you want to set up sustainable projects in the area of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)? The financial, institutional, environmental, techno logical and social (FIETS) aspects of sustainability. The Dutch WASH Alliance believes that all of these aspects require attention; not separately, but as a whole. This fact sheet explains the relationship between environmental sustainability and each of the other FIETS elements.

Environmental Sustainability In WASH projects by the Dutch WASH Alliance

How can you support people in living healthy lives? One way is to ensure that they have access to enough clean water. Another is to support them in building proper sanitary facilities. Or to increase awareness of good hygiene practices. The Dutch WASH Alliance aims to realise and embed these conditions around the world. To ensure that it is done in the most sustainable manner possible, the Dutch WASH Alliance follows a unique strategy called ‘FIETS’. This factsheet explains part of the strategy: the focus on environmental sustainability.

Restoring Peatlands in Russia

Millions of hectares of drained and abandoned peatlands in European Russia are highly vulnerable to fires, such as those that covered Moscow in smoke during the extremely dry summer of 2010.

Environmental Sustainability In the storage, management and use of water

How can you store large amounts of clean water that would otherwise be lost via runoff ? And how can you access that water when it is needed? The answers to these questions diff er for each area or watershed. The Dutch WASH Alliance therefore works to find the most sustainable, suitable and context-specific solutions. The goal is to provide people with enough clean water, in a way that benefits both them and their natural environment. The ‘3R’ approach plays a vital role in realising this goal.

Leaflet - Reforesting fisheries in Aceh with Mangrove: Save the Coast

Around 26,130 hectares of mangrove are destroyed by tsunami has been rehabilitated with mangrove by various institutions. However, the most of the mangrove rehabilitation activities only took place in ex-mangrove habitat land and not in the community fishery ponds that used to be mangrove habitat too. This means that there are still fishery land that are potential to be rehabitated by planting mangrove by the pond dikes and in a little part of inner ponds by adopting silvo-fishery method. In fact, if the fishery land is reforestrated, some environmental and economic benefits can be increased.
