Rift Valley fever (RVF) is one of the most serious transboundary animal diseases. It is a mosquito-borne viral disease, which causes periodic severe epidemics, principally involving ruminant animals. This manual provides information on the nature of RVF and the principles and strategic options for its prevention, control and elimination. Guidelines are provided for individual countries threatened by RVF to formulate their overall national policy on control and eradication of a possible incursion of the disease. The manual also identifies personnel, equipment and other facilities that are needed in a national RVF contingency plan.

Right to adequate food in emergencies, (The)

FAO Legislative Study No. 77
Rome, 2003, 82 pp.
ISBN 92-5-104885-1
ISSN 1014-6679

$14.00


When natural disasters hit and violent conflicts arise, the right to food of innocent people is often endangered. Disruption in food production and distribution, looting and blockades, destruction of crops and mining of agricultural land are but some of the common concomitants of emergencies. All too often, food is used as an instrument to exert pressure on populations and countries. In such situations, States have specific obligations under international law to respect, protect and fulfil the right to food of those affected. This study examines the international legal framework of relevance to the right to adequate food in emergencies, exploring applicable international human rights and humanitarian law as well as economic and environmental law. In this comprehensive overview of the international rules applicable in natural and human-induced emergencies, principles of humanitarian access, duties of the international community, interventions by the Security Council, crimes against humanity and the ban on deliberate starvation of civilians are discussed and standards regarding food and food related aid are presented.

Pour ce faire, ces directives abordent le contexte institutionnel des systèmes de location des terres, mais elles visent aussi à fournir un guide pratique et des commentaires concernant les différents aspects que doivent prendre en considération le propriétaire et le locataire lors de la négociation d'un contrat de location.

Relaciones tierra-agua en cuencas hidrográficas rurales

Roma, 2002, 100 págs. + CD-ROM
Boletines de tierras y aguas de la FAO No 9
ISBN 92-5-304765-8
ISSN 1020-8127
TC/M/Y3618/S
$14.00


A menudo se supone que la dinámica de la ocupación de tierras y las prácticas de manejo del suelo generan importantes impactos sobre los recursos hídricos que afectan a la población situada aguas abajo de la cuenca hidrográfica. Los pagos que la población que vive aguas abajo efectúa a la población situada aguas arriba por los «servicios ambientales» prestados -un suministro de agua de buena calidad, el contenimiento de la cantidad de sedimentos o un régimen más regular de caudales-, constituyen un asunto ampliamente debatido. Sin embargo, existe escaso consenso técnico respecto de la naturaleza y alcance de los impactos biofísicos, las consecuencias socioeconómicas para la población y para otras personas, y los mecanismos para cuantificar y distribuir los costes y beneficios de las prácticas de manejo del suelo entre los diferentes usuarios. Para abordar estos problemas, la Dirección de Fomento de Tierras y Aguas de la FAO organizó, del 18 de septiembre al 27 de octubre de 2000, el taller electrónico «Relaciones tierra-agua en cuencas hidrográficas rurales». La presente publicación contiene las actas del taller y las dos comunicaciones en que se basaron los debates. La documentación completa del taller, comprendido el archivo de los debates, los documentos de antecedentes y los estudios de casos, están contenidos en el CD-ROM que completa esta publicación.

Planning and management for sustainable coastal aquaculture development

GESAMP Reports and Studies No. 57
Rome, 2002, 110 pp.
ISBN 92-5-504634-9
ISSN 1726-1414
TR/M/Y1818/Ch
$11.00


The rationale for more integrated approaches to aquaculture development is powerful: coastal aquaculture has brought significant benefits to both national economies and coastal people; aquaculture is highly vulnerable to pollution caused by other resource users; if poorly designed or managed it may cause pollution or the spread of disease; its impacts are often limited but incremental and cumulative; and it often takes place in areas where resource ownership or use rights are ill-defined and ambiguous. Efforts to integrate aquaculture into coastal management can contribute to improvements in selection, protection and allocation of sites and other resources for existing and future aquaculture developments. This report explores how more planned and integrated approaches can be applied to aquaculture development. These approaches should contribute to more systematic planning and improved management of individual aquaculture operations, as well as to the coastal aquaculture sector as a whole.
