Director of Forestry, Fitzgerald Providence has pointed to the important role sustainable land management plays in reducing land degradation in Saint. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Mr. Providence highlighted the issue as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines joined the Global Community to observe "World Day" to combat desertification and drought on Wednesday June 17th, under the theme: "Food, Feed , Fibre."

He said failure to address land degradation will increase the country’s vulnerability to natural hazards. Mr. Providence is also the Focal Point for the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.
