000013232 520__ $$aWater-related problems are an increasingly important challenge to sustainable development, and&nbsp;the availability and quality of water are strongly influenced by forests. In this issue of FAO's Unasylva,&nbsp;a collection of articles&nbsp;explore the complex interaction between water and forests in&nbsp;a range of&nbsp;contexts, and&nbsp;discuss the challenges for policy that arise from&nbsp;this.
The issue begins with ann introductory chapter, which&nbsp;appraises the state of knowledge of forest and water interactions and related policy issues. The authors emphasise the need to narrow the gap between research and policy-making and the importance of policy linkages between the forest and water sectors.&nbsp;
In the remaining chapters, a range of authors discuss related issues and present&nbsp;case studies from&nbsp;rural and urban&nbsp;contexts in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Titles are:
