Mapping The Vulnerability Of Mountain Peoples To Food Insecurity
PDF File Size: 3.93 MB | Download   
Mountains cover 22 percent of the world’s land surface and are home to some 915 million people, representing 13 percent of global population. Mountains also provide between 60 and 80 percent of the earth’s fresh water. Yet, in spite of this global relevance, there is a dearth of data and information on the status of mountains and mountain peoples. In 2003, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) published “Towards a GIS-based analysis of mountain environments and populations”, a study that estimated mountain peoples’ vulnerability to food insecurity. The study, undertaken as a follow-up to the 2002 UN International Year of Mountains, has become a cornerstone of development efforts. It is used and quoted, for as a reference, requesting more investments, specific policies and global attention toward mountains.
