Pesticides residues in food - 2001. Evaluations 2001. Part I - Residues

FAO Plant Production and Protection Paper No. 171
Rome, 2002, 1102 pp.
ISBN 92-5-104795-2
ISSN 0259-2517

The report of the Joint Meeting of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues in Food and the Environment and WHO Toxicological Core Assessment Group on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), held in Geneva, 17 to 26 September 2001, contains a summary of the evaluations of residues in food of the various pesticides considered as well as information on the general principles followed by the Meeting. The present document contains summaries of the residues data considered, together with the recommendations made. The Evaluations are issued in two parts: Part I, Residues (by FAO) and Part II: Toxicology (by WHO). Special attention is drawn to Annex I containing updated ADIs, PTDs, MRLs, ERLs, STMR and HR levels which also appear in full as part of the main report of the Meeting.
This compendium of recent sustainable development initiatives in the field of agriculture and land management has been developed as a supporting document for the Task Manager's Report on the Land and Agriculture Cluster for Chapters 10, 12 and 14 of Agenda 21. The report draws together 75 cases for over 45 countries, illustrating the many features of improved land management and sustainable agriculture and rural development. These are intended to provide important supporting evidence of the progress in the implementation of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), Agenda 21, and the need for further upscaling of these cases to address the challenges of poverty, hunger and sustainable development.

Improved animal health for poverty reduction and sustainable livelihoods

FAO Animal Production and Health Paper No. 153
Rome, 2002, 54 pp.
ISBN 92-5-104757-X
ISSN 0254-6019

This manual examines practical ways of reducing poverty and creating sustainable livelihoods among rural populations in the developing world by improving the health of livestock. Demand for animal products is likely to increase dramatically in the next two decades, and producers will benefit from increased trade opportunities. The extent to which producers in poor countries will share the benefits depends on the production levels they can achieve and on whether their products will be accepted as tradable commodities. These determining factors are inextricably linked to the health of their livestock. The manual looks at ways of improving national animal health policies and delivery systems through objective analysis of problems and training of personnel; the importance of raising public awareness is underlined. It stresses the need for global response strategies to support animal and public health issues and sustain national and local initiatives. An important element of the manual is that its lessons are drawn from extensive practical experience worldwide, particularly in developing countries.

The results of the meeting revealed that there were residual deficiencies in the national data collection systems that will require further corrective action before standardization at the subregional level can be achieved. The group considered this requirement vital to the development of a workable management regime. The group was cautious in formulating firm recommendations to establish regional cooperation in research and management. It therefore recommended that in light of the need for further adjustments in the existing data and collection systems, a "generic draft" outline of a Subregional Flyingfish Management Plan (SFFMP) should be mooted for comments from the WECAFC Scientific Advisory Group. The report also assembles the full manager's reports on the preliminary analyses and attempts at standardization of their flyingfish data sets. National reports on the social and economic status of the commercial flyingfish fishery are included in addition to summaries of both sets of reports.

Social dimensions of integrated production and pest management.

A case study in Mali People's Participation No. 13
Rome, 2002, 48 pp.

The integrated pest management (IPM) programme trains farmers on how to take independent, well-informed crop production and management decisions. This is achieved primarily through participatory, season-long, farmer field schools that help farmers and extensionists to work together to understand better what goes on in the fields. Until now, most attention has primarily focused on the yield increases and reduction in production costs resulting from IPM. This study examines the social impact of IPM field schools in the Office du Niger irrigation scheme in Mali, during the 1999-2000 seasons. It also makes some interesting observations regarding the impact of IPM field schools in improving technical knowledge, changing the attitudes and behaviour of farmers and extensionists, and in simulating increased collective self-help action.

State of Food Insecurity in the World 2002, (The)


Rome, 2002, 36 pp.

We do not have the excuse that we cannot grow enough or that we do not know enough about how to eliminate hunger. The persistence of widespread hunger in a world of plenty has a devastating impact on human lives, national economies and global prospects for sustainable development. This fourth edition of "The State of Food Insecurity in the World" reports on this alarming trend, documents its impact and highlights some encouraging signs that the trend can be reversed. Articles chart the fatal connection between hunger and mortality, hunger's crippling effect on both family productivity and national prosperity, and the strategic connection between combating hunger and achieving the Millennium Development goals.

Fuel and financial savings for operators of small fishing vessels

FAO Fisheries Technical paper No. 383

Fishing continues to be the most energy-intensive food production method in the world today, and it depends almost completely on oil fuel-based internal combustion engines. Small-scale fisheries account for nearly half of world's fish production and, although they are generally more labour-intensive than larger industrial fisheries, they are increasingly affected by energy costs. In developing countries, in spite of the energy conservation initiatives of the 1980s (subsequent to the dramatic rise in the cost of fossil fuels), mechanization continues to increase. Fuel costs have ever more influence not only on consumer prices but also on fishermen's and boat owners net incomes. When levels of employment and cost-sharing systems are considered, it becomes even more important from a social perspective to improve and maintain energy efficiency within small-scale fisheries.This guide is divided into two major sections: the first discusses changes in operational techniques rather than changes in technology; the second presents information of relevance to vessel operators who are either considering the construction of a new vessel or overhauling and re-equipping an existing vessel.
