Strengthening organizations and collective action in fisheries : a way forward in implementing the international guidelines for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries : FAO Workshop, 18-20 March 2013, Rome, Italy( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strengthening organizations and collective action in small-scale fisheries (SSFs) is crucial to safeguarding fishers' livelihoods and food and nutrition security as well as to fighting poverty and vulnerability. The crucial role of organizations in SSFs was underscored during the 2008 Global Conference on Small-scale Fisheries, held in Bangkok, Thailand, and the consultative workshops and related events supporting the development of the international guidelines for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries (SSF Guidelines). The United Nations declared 2012 the International Year of Cooperatives with the theme Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World. This provided further impetus for championing fishers' organizations and collective action as important instruments and drivers in promoting responsible fisheries and achieving the twin objectives of human and ecosystem well-being. In this context, the workshop Strengthening Organizations and Collective Action in Fisheries was held at FAO, Rome, Italy, on 18-20 March 2013. It was attended by 26 SSF experts representing civil society organizations, governments and academia. The workshop anticipated the implementation of the SSF Guidelines by looking at the diversity of existing organizations and collective action in SSFs, discussing their strengths and weaknesses, and proposing elements for a capacity development strategy to strengthen organizations and collective action in SSFs to reduce poverty while promoting responsible fisheries. The workshop identified challenges and opportunities and examined alternative pathways on how organizations and collective action in fisheries can strengthen and be strengthened by the SSF Guidelines. This publication summarizes the workshop results and intends to provide a useful reference document that will feed into the process of implementing the SSF Guidelines, which should be endorsed by the FAO Committee on Fisheries during its session in 2014
Crops, browse and pollinators in Africa : an initial stock-taking by African Pollinators Initiative( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pollination is an ecosystem service that is key to food security. Pollinators are essential for many fruit and vegetable crops. In agriculture, especially amongst pollen-limited crops, promoting pollination services is a means of increasing productivity without resorting to expensive agricultural inputs of pesticides or herbicides. As wild ecosystems are increasingly converted to more human-dominated uses to meet the compelling demand of food security, it is critical for us to understand what pollination services are most important for food security, and how we can preserve pollinator services in sustainable farming systems. FAO, through the FAO/Netherlands Partnership Program, supported an initial stock-taking of pollinator-dependent crops and browse plants in Africa, presented in this document.--Publisher's description

OECD-FAO Perspectivas agricolas 2007 by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta 13a edición de las Perspectivas agrícolas anuales (tercera elaborada de manera conjunta con la FAO) brinda una evaluación de las perspectivas de los mercados agrícolas con base en proyecciones que se extienden hasta 2016 para la producción, el consumo, el comercio, las existencias y los precios de productos agrícolas principalmente de la zona templada. Las proyecciones se basan en supuestos específicos relacionados con las condiciones macroeconómicas mundiales, el crecimiento de la población, las políticas agrícolas y comerciales nacionales, las técnicas de producción y las condiciones atmosféricas. El documento muestra que estos mercados son influidos por las evoluciones económicas y las políticas gubernamentales y realza algunos de los riesgos e incertidumbres que podrían influir en los resultados de los mercados. Además de los países de la OCDE, las proyecciones de los mercados que figuran en el informe abarcan a un gran número de países y regiones, incluso a los gigantes agrícolas de la India, China, el Brasil y Rusia, así como a la Argentina, Sudáfrica y diversos países menos desarrollados
Quatrième rapport d'étape du Canada sur la sécurité alimentaire : en réponse au Plan d'action du Sommet mondial de l'alimentation( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1996, le Canada s'est joint à 186 pays pour appuyer l'objectif du Sommet mondial de l'alimentation (SMA) : réduire de moitié, d'ici 2015, le nombre de personnes souffrant de sous-alimentation chronique. Le présent rapport est le quatrième présenté par le Canada à l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO). Y figurent quelques-unes des nombreuses initiatives que le Canada a entreprises au cours des deux dernières années pour atteindre l'objectif du Sommet. Bien que ce rapport ne se veuille pas exhaustif, les initiatives qu'il renferme, par leur portée et leur envergure, témoignent clairement de l'engagement permanent que le Canada a pris de réduire la faim et d'accrot̋re la sécurité alimentaire tant au pays qu'à l'étranger
OECD-FAO Perspectivas agricolas 2006 by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perspectivas agrícolas OCDE-FAO 2006-2015 Esta es la segunda ocasión en que la Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económico (OCDE) y la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Agricultura y la Alimentación (FAO) elaboran conjuntamente el informe Perspectivas Agrícolas. Dicho informe se beneficia de la autoridad propia de ambas organizaciones en lo que respecta a las materias primas,  la política y los países. Este informe anual analiza las tendencias del mercado mundial de materias primas y las perspectivas a medio plazo para los principales productos agrícolas. Muestra la influencia de los desarrollos económicos y de las políticas estatales en estos mercados y resalta algunos de los riesgos e incertidumbres que pueden influir en los resultados del mercado. Además de los países de la OCDE, los pronósticos del mercado señalados en el informe cubren un amplio número de otros países y regiones, entre ellos los gigantes agrícolas de la India, China, Brasil y Rusia, así como Argentina, Sudáfrica y varios países menos desarrollados.  La duodécima edición de Perspectivas Agrícolas ofrece una valoración de las perspectivas del mercado agrícola basada en previsiones que abarcan hasta el 2015 y relacionadas con la producción, consumo, comercio, existencias y precios de, principalmente, las materias primas agrícolas de las zonas templadas. Dichas previsiones se basan en unos supuestos concretos relativos a las condiciones  macroeconómicas mundiales, al crecimiento de la población, a las políticas nacionales agrícolas y comerciales así como a las tecnologías de la producción.Además, dichas previsiones se han instituido con arreglo a unas condiciones climáticas regulares. El conjunto de estos supuestos permite establecer un escenario representativo de cuál podría ser la evolución de los mercados agrícolas a lo largo de la próxima década. Está previsto que la producción agrícola mundial continúe creciendo hasta el 2015, pero a un ritmo más lento que el de los últimos diez años. El crecimiento económico sostenido de muchos países de la OCDE y ajenos a la OCDE, así como los moderados aumentos de población refuerzan la demanda mundial de productos agrícolas. La creciente producción de energía biológica consolida la demanda de determinados productos vegetales que se utilizan en la producción de etanol y de biodiésel. La mayor demanda mundial de productos agrícolas sirve de base para el aumento de la producción y del comercio agrícola durante el período de previsión, sobre todo en los países en vías de desarrollo. Al mismo tiempo, se espera que se intensifique la competencia en los mercados internacionales entre los tradicionales exportadores agrícolas de la OCDE y los emergentes debido a la expansión de la producción en muchos países
