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 49 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

Its functions range from engaging stakeholders in problem analysis and risk assessment to supporting behavior and social change. The experiences recounted here are drawn from the various sessions of the Congress and emphasize the value of using Communication for Development to engage stakeholders in a professional and systematic manner for more effective and sustainable project design and implementation."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 16 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

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

Groundwater in international law : compilation of treaties and other legal instruments by Stefano Burchi( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Groundwater is of high social, economic, environmental and strategic importance. It represents about ninety-seven percent of the fresh water resources available on earth, excluding the water locked in the polar ice. Aquifers, among them numerous transboundary ones, are coming under growing pressure from over-abstraction and pollution, which seriously threaten their sustainability. Up to now international law has paid much less attention to ground- than to surface water. Slowly however, a body of rules dealing with this vital resource is emerging that indicates a trend towards more comprehensive international regulation. This publication brings together binding and non-binding international law instruments that, in varying degrees and from different angles, deal with groundwater. Its aim is to report developments in international law and to contribute to detecting law in-the-making in this important field.--P. [4] de la couv
