The livelihood of urban communities depends on the wide range of goods and services provided by natural ecosystems in and around cities. The UPF approach can significantly contribute to the quality of the urban environment and provide a wide range of benefits including watershed management and disaster risk prevention, climate change adaptation and mitigation, air quality improvement, human health benefits, food and fuel supply, jobs and income generation and biodiversity conservation. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is committed to promoting UPF globally by putting information within reach, sharing policy expertise, providing a meeting place for nations, and bringing knowledge to the field. In particular, main areas of UPF-related work at FAO currently include: Technical assistance to countries; Awareness raising; Networking; Knowledge sharing.
