Environment and ecosystem management are key to ensuring urban and rural development and progress towards the achievement of the MDGs. Poor communities directly depend on natural resources for their livelihood and are the most vulnerable to a degraded environment, natural disasters and are the first to suffer from polluted air, water and soil.
