Featured project

The Conference is aiming to enhance the capacity of ECO Secretariat in the preparation for ECO Regional Seed Conferences, facilitate the participation of ECO members in the preparatory processes for the harmonization of regional seed trade and contribute to set-uo a pro active website for ECO Regional Seed Conference.

The objectives of LIBERATION are to identify general relationships between semi-natural habitats, on-farm management and biodiversity, link farmland biodiversity to ecosystem services, examine different strategies to mitigate ecosystem services, quantify the impact of ecosystem services on crop yield, quantify the socio-economic implications of eco-functional intensification, evaluate the contribution of ecosystem services at different land-use scenario’s and demonstrate our findings and disseminate them to a wide range of stakeholders.
The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (lPBES) is a newly established international platform that will act as an interface between the scientific community and policymakers and aims at building capacity for and strengthen the use of science in policymaking. Although there is growing recognition of the need to use science effectively in decisionmaking, the knowledge base is uneven, with significant differences across countries and regions. There is also significant variation in the capacity to use data, information and knowledge in policy development and decision making. It is therefore widely recognised that capacity building will have to be further addressed under IPBES. Through an existing GEF-funded project, FAO has developed a protocol to identify and assess pollination deficits in crops. Several countries involved in the project have used this protocol. Local knowledge is also a resource to be tapped in assessing deficits and identifying solutions. It is proposed to enhance the science-knowledge-policy interface in pollination services by assisting additional countries to apply the protocol, invite the contribution of indigenous people and local communities to assessing pollination deficits, build the capacity in participating countries to detect trends and indications from pollination deficits, and facilitate the identification, mapping, modelling and analysis of options for action in areas experiencing such deficits. The work proposed will contribute to building science-policy interface capacities for a specific ecosystem service of relevance to potential future work of the newly-formed Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. As such, effort will be put into extracting lessons learned from building an ecosystem-service-related science-policy interface, and cooperative arrangements across institutions and countries.
To objective of this project is to provide farmers with the necessary incentives, capabilities and supporting institutional framework to conserve agricultural biodiversity within fartming systems of Lao PDR.
The project is aimed at reducing the impact of climate variability and change on vulnerable farmers and pastoral groups, through lessening impacts on natural resources that are critical to sustain agriculture production and food security
