Japanese Agricultural Heritage Sites: Global AssetRef.:

Graziano da Silva highlights the importance of "living agricultural museums"

7 October 2013, Rome - FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva met with the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, Yoshimasa Hayashi, at FAO Headquarters today.  

Graziano da Silva showed his appreciation for the country’s support to FAO and for Japan’s ratification of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. Japan will become the 130th Contracting Party of the Treaty later this month.  

FAO Director-General also expressed his admiration for the Japanese Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Sites (GIAHS), remarkable specific agricultural systems and landscapes that have been created, shaped, and maintained by generations of farmers based on diverse natural resources, using locally adapted management practices.  

One of these locations is in the Noto peninsula, a site characterized by a mosaic of socio-ecological production managed systems referred to as satoyama, terrestrial-aquatic landscape ecosystems comprising secondary woodlands, plantations, grasslands, farmlands, pasture, irrigation ponds and canals, and satoumi, marine-coastal ecosystems comprising seashore, rocky shore, tidal flats and seaweed/eelgrass beds.  

The Director-General also explained the Organization’s desire to increase the food safety capacity, adopting lessons from Japan’s rich experience in this field.

José Graziano da Silva speaks about the Zero Hunger Programme in the Asia Pacific Region

The global Zero Hunger Challenge was proposed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June 2012. It has five objectives:
1. 100 per cent access to food for all, all year round;
2. end to stunting among children under two because of a lack of nutrients during pregnancy and in the early days of life;
3. ensuring sustainable food systems;
4. doubling smallholder productivity and income; and
5. reduction in food loss, at the farmer level, through lack of suitable storage and reduction of waste of food by retailers and consumers.

Asia-Pacific Zero Hunger ChallengeRef.:2013/02

On 29 April 2013, the United Nations launched the Zero Hunger Challenge in Asia and the Pacific in the presence of top national leaders, calling on governments, farmers, scientists, business, civil society and consumers to join hands to end hunger in the region where the majority of the world's undernourished people live.

The global 'Zero Hunger Challenge', proposed by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June 2012 has five objectives: 1) 100 percent access to food for all, all year round; 2) end to stunting among children under two because of a lack of nutrients during pregnancy and in the early days of life; 3) ensuring sustainable food systems; 4) doubling smallholder productivity and income; and 5) reduction in food loss, at the farmer level, through lack of suitable storage and reduction of waste of food by retailers and consumers.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is contributing to a world without hunger by helping countries build and share solutions to achieve poverty reduction and the Millennium Development Goals, democratic governance, crisis prevention and recovery, environment and energy for sustainable development.
