The five articles in these newsletter are a good reflection of what FAO does on a day to day basis in Lesotho. Our work spans from high policy and strategic level engagements to downstream initiatives with rural communities. The human interest stories shared in these articles show the importance of healthy natural resource base in improving and sustaining the livelihoods of the rural poor. Understanding the causes of hunger and malnutrition and identifying pathways out of that poverty/hunger trap is part of the policy engagement that FAO in collaboration with the broader UN family has been facilitating over the last few months. It is our firm believe that the outcome of this policy review process will deliver zero hunger for Lesotho by 2030.<p></p>It is almost impossible to delink poverty and food insecurity in the rural areas with the degrading natural resource base. As evidenced from the human interest stories on this newsletter, successful efforts in reversing land degradation and improving land productivity has an immediate positive impacts on the livelihoods of the local communities. A large proportion of FAO projects in Lesotho are dealing with these sort of issues and success stories of this nature are very inspirational for the dedicated team of FAO field staff and partners. <p></p>
