FAO | 15 Years in Afghanistan – A special report 2003-2018

Afghanistan’s economy and people are heavily reliant on agriculture, a sector that has been under huge pressure due to conflict and insecurity and increasingly to climate change. This report from the UN FAO provides insights into the linkages between these factors and the efforts to address them.

Armed conflict and insecurity are at the core of serious environmental problems in many countries, harming people, ecosystems and holding back sustainable development. Until the international community acknowledges this, their chances of progress on the #SDGs seems remote. 3/3

Need proof? How about the Rio+20 Outcome Document "The Future We Want"? 24,531 words long, and only one of those words is "conflict". Unfair? OK, it also mentions peace once as well: 2/3

Armed conflicts are sustainable development in reverse, and the environment is one of the three pillars of sustainable development. Yet the discourse on sustainable development doesn't address the environmental dimensions of conflicts nearly enough. #SDGs 1/2

Stronger rules protecting the #environment and the #HumanRights connected to it are urgently needed. Governments discussed this important question at the UN recently, you can read our round-up of what they said here: https://t.co/7t7CRruwrt #intlaw #SDGs #UNEA4
