Good emergency management practice: The essentials. A guide to preparing for animal health emergencies

A disease emergency is one of the most challenging situations a veterinary service can confront. Veterinary services must be well prepared to deal with such an emergency in order to achieve rapid and cost-efficient control. This manual sets out in a systematic way the elements required to achieve an appropriate level of preparedness for any disease emergency in animals. In particular this manual focuses on the control of transboundary animal diseases. Some of the principles presented may also be helpful in preparing for food safety, zoonotic and even non-infectious disease emergencies.

World livestock 2011. Livestock in food security

ISBN 978-92-5-107013-0
I2373/E
FAO111419
USD 35.00


Although much has been said about livestock's role in achieving food security, in reality, the subject has been only partially addressed and no current document fully covers the topic. This book fills the gap. It examines the multiple roles played by livestock in the food security of the poor and advocates for support of smallholders, both in responding to opportunities in livestock production and in finding other opportunities within a broad rural development strategy.

State of food insecurity in the world 2011 (The). How does international price volatility affect domestic economies and food security?

ISBN 978-92-5-106927-1

FAO111379
USD 27.00


The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2011 highlights the differential impacts that the world food crisis of 2006-08 had on different countries, with the poorest being most affected. This year's report focuses on the costs of food price volatility, as well as the dangers and opportunities presented by high food prices. Climate change and an increased frequency of weather shocks, increased linkages between energy and agricultural markets due to growing demand for biofuels, and increased financialization of food and agricultural commodities all suggest that price volatility is here to stay. The report describes the effects of price volatility on food security and presents policy options to reduce volatility in a cost-effective manner and to manage it when it cannot be avoided.

État de l'insécurité alimentaire dans le monde 2011 (L'). Comment la volatilité des cours internationaux porte-t-elle atteinte à l'économie et à la sécurité alimentaire des pays?

FAO111377
USD 27.00


L'état de l'insécurité alimentaire dans le monde 2011 met en lumière la diversité des répercussions de la crise alimentaire mondiale de 2006-2008 sur les différents pays, les plus pauvres étant les plus durement touchés. Le rapport de cette année porte sur les coûts de la volatilité des prix des denrées alimentaires ainsi que sur les dangers et les avantages des hauts niveaux de prix. Le changement climatique et la multiplication des chocs météorologiques, le renforcement des liens entre les marchés de l'énergie et les marchés agricoles lié à la demande croissante en biocarburants, et enfin, la financiarisation progressive des produits alimentaires et agricoles, sont autant de réalités qui laissent penser que la volatilité des prix n'est pas près de disparaître. Le rapport décrit les répercussions de la volatilité des prix sur la sécurité alimentaire et présente les options politiques permettant de la réduire, de façon économique et efficace, et de la gérer quand elle ne peut pas être évitée.

Estado de la inseguridad alimentaría en el mundo 2011 (El). Como afecta la volatilidad de los precios internacionales a las economías nacionales y la seguridad alimentaría?

USD 27.00


En El estado de la inseguridad alimentaría en el mundo 2011 se hace hincapié en las diferentes repercusiones que tuvo la crisis alimentaría mundial de 2006-08 en los distintos países, y que afectó más a los más pobres. El informe del año en curso se centra en los costos de la volatilidad de los precios de los alimentos, así como en los riesgos y oportunidades que plantean los elevados precios de los alimentos. El cambio climático y la mayor frecuencia de las perturbaciones meteorológicas, el aumento de los vínculos entre los mercados energéticos y agrícolas debido a la creciente demanda de biocombustibles y el aumento de la "financierización" de los productos alimenticios y agrícolas básicos apuntan a que la volatilidad de los precios será una realidad perdurable. En este informe se describen los efectos de dicha volatilidad en la seguridad alimentaría y se presentan opciones en materia de políticas para reducir la volatilidad de una forma efectiva en función de los costos y para controlar dicho fenómeno cuando no se pueda evitar.
