Save and Grow. A policymaker's guide to sustainable intensification of smallholder crop production

Rome, 2011, 400 pp., B5, PB
ISBN 978-92-5-106871-7
I2215/E

USD 45.00


Sustainable crop production intensification can be summed up in the words save and grow. Sustainable intensification means a productive agriculture that conserves and enhances natural resources. It uses an ecosystem approach that draws on nature's contribution to crop growth and applies appropriate external inputs at the right time, in the right amount. FAO's aim over the next 15 years is to assist developing countries in adopting save and grow policies and approaches. This book presents a new paradigm: sustainable crop production intensification (SCPI), which produces more from the same area of land while conserving resources, reducing negative impacts on the environment and enhancing natural capital and the flow of ecosystem services.

The objective of this publication is to offer a reference material for extensionists, professors, agronomy students, technicians in general, and for farmers themselves. Through information that is up-to-date and richly illustrated, it strives to facilitate the adoption and diffusion of No-Tillage, the use of green manures, and the practice of crop rotation on small farms. The publication describes the principal species of green manures and, at the same time, informs in detail how to insert green manures into small farm production systems according to soil fertility and major crops. It also analyzes the economic implication of these practices.

International consultation on integrated crop-livestock systems for development, (An).The way forward for sustainable production intensification

Integrated Crop Management No. 13
Rome, 2011, 76 pp., B5, PB

Trees in crop-livestock systems often add significant synergistic values. Innovations that can strengthen the multi-dimensional role of integrated crop-livestock-trees systems and their resilience are taking place and there is a need to share this knowledge more efficiently and to build jointly owned research and development programmes to achieve critical mass of expertise and financial resources focused on helping farmers in major agro-ecologies. This proceeding of the electronic and face-to-face Consultation held early in 2010 is just a first step. FAO is committed to facilitate effective development, focused on sustainable production intensification of crops and of livestock and their integrated systems - at the farm level and also area-wide integration -- such as at the community or watershed levels.

In 2010, the number of countries where H5N1 HPAI was reported increased to 18 (from 12 in 2009), and the overall number of reported outbreaks worldwide also increased. The disease was reintroduced to five countries, including Bulgaria and Romania, which were the first disease events in Europe since 2008. Human fatalities continued to occur. Thus, H5N1 HPAI continues to be a major concern, including the risk of human infection. This report highlights achievements and directions in combating HPAI, animal diseases which have an impact on livelihoods and food security, and in the case of zoonotic diseases, those which threaten human health.

Value chain approach to animal diseases risk management, (A). Technical foundations and practical framework for field application

FAO Animal Production and Health Guidelines No. 4
Rome, 2011, 144 pp., B5, PB
ISBN 978-92-5-106861-8
ISSN 1810-0708
I2198/E
FAO111262
USD 30.00


Classical risk assessment approaches for animal diseases are influenced by the probability of release, exposure and consequences of a hazard affecting a livestock population. Once a pathogen enters into domestic livestock, potential risks of exposure and infection both to animals and people extend through a chain of economic activities related to producing, buying and selling of animals and products. Therefore, in order to understand economic drivers of animal diseases in different ecosystems and to come up with effective and efficient measures to manage disease risks from a country or region, the entire value chain and related markets for animal and product needs to be analysed. Value chain analysis enriches disease risk assessment providing a framework for interdisciplinary collaboration, which seems to be in increasing demand for problems concerning infectious livestock diseases. The best way to achieve this is to ensure that veterinary epidemiologists and social scientists work together throughout the process at all levels.

FORESTRY
Section 3

Guide to good practice in contract labour in forestry

Rome, 2011, 72 pp., B5, PB
ISBN 978-92-5-106877-9
I2231/E
FAO111265
USD 25.00


One aspect of the social pillar of sustainable forest management, which has so far received little attention at the policy level, is the forest workforce. Sustainable forestry requires a sustainable work force. Very often small enterprises face major challenges in terms of occupational safety and health and economic viability as they lack string structure of cooperation and mutual support. A team of specialist, under the integrated programme of UNECE Timber Committee and FAO, was set up to address this issue. This guide is based on European and North American conditions, but many of its suggestions are applicable elsewhere.

Reforming forest tenure. Issues, principles and process

FAO Forestry Papers No. 165
Rome, 2011, 108 pp., B5, PB
ISBN 978-92-5-106855-7
ISSN 0258-6150
I2185/E
FAO111267
USD 30.00


FAO's Global Forest Resources Assessment 2010 (FRA 2010) shows that 80 percent of the world's forests are publicly owned, but forest ownership and management by communities, individuals and private companies are increasing (FAO, 2010c). Globally, State ownership and management dominate forest tenure, but transitions are under way - more in some countries than in others. A more diversified tenure system could provide a basis for improving forest management and local livelihoods, particularly where State capacities to manage forests are weak. This publication provides practical guidance for policy-makers and others concerned with addressing forest tenure reform.

Regional shellfish hatchery for the Wider Caribbean: Assessing its feasibility and sustainability. (A). FAO Regional Technical Workshop, 18-21 October 2010, Kingston, Jamaica

By: Lovatelli, A., Sarkis, S.
FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Proceedings No. 19
Rome, 2011, 260 pp., A4, PB
ISBN 978-92-5-106848-9

FAO111281
USD 60.00


It is widely recognized that the development of aquaculture in the Wider Caribbean region is inhibited, in part, by the lack of technical expertise, infrastructure, capital investment and human resources. Furthermore, seed supply for native species relies, for the most part, on natural collection, subject to natural population abundance with wide yearly variations. The establishment of a regional hatchery facility, supporting sustainable aquaculture through the seed production of native molluscan species was discussed at the FAO workshop "Regional shellfish hatchery: A feasibility study" held in Jamaica in October 2010, by representatives of Caribbean governments and experts in the field. The current document summarizes the findings of the workshop and outlines four follow-up recommendations on steps required for the successful implementation of a regional facility.

Les maladies animales connues pour être principalement diffusées par les activités humaines peuvent être évitées et contrôlées par la mise en application des mesures de biosécurité le long des filières de production et des circuits de commercialisation ainsi que par une sensibilisation accrue et des activités de formation. C'est cette conception qui rend la biosécurité particulièrement importante dans la prévention, le contrôle et l'éradication des maladies animales transfrontières (TADs). L'objectif visé est le changement des habitudes et des pratiques des gens, de manière à diminuer le risque de transmission des maladies. Une approche participative va favoriser tant la sélection de mesures de biosécurité qui soient sans risques, réalisables, rentables et durables, que leur adoption.
