Italy's overseas aid department on Wednesday - World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought - vowed to promote sustainable agricultural production and consumption to fight desertification, land degradation and drought.

"Italian Cooperation (AICS) is committed to combatting desertification, land degradation and drought and promoting sustainable production and consumption," the department tweeted.

AICS has supported over 140 desertification-related initiatives in partner countries over the past three years, the tweet added.

Over two billion hectares of previously productive land is now degraded and drought and water scarcity have amplified the problem, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation said on Tuesday.
