    The present report commences by presenting a study carried out by FAO on the risks associated with processes of decentralization. An account is then provided of the valuable knowledge-base and experience which FAO has built up, which places it in a position to propose appropriate ways of responding to such risks. Identification of the latter and of FAO's valuable advantages makes it possible, finally, to put forward a decentralization model based on a methodology of regionalization and different iation and three associated policies: information, training and organization.

    FAO Investment Centre environmental reports are directed to environment and natural resources specialists. They address environmental issues associated with the formulation of investment projects for the agricultural/rural sector.This report reviews the role of indirect incentives in relation to incentive systems that promote participation in resource conservation to reduce male and youth migration from rural communities. Beyond short- and medium-term incentives, there is a need for longer-term incentives that relate to security of access to and control of resources. The study examines indirect incentives which comprise those influences on producers’ decisions that are not concerned with directly bringing about changes in the management of natural resources through financial or similar inducements (direct incentives). The study also addresses the variability of incentive systems used by different developers and the need for greater harmonization in approach.
