This session was held in concomitance with a Symposium on Inland Fisheries Management and the Aquatic Environment. The session reviewed EIFAC’s activities since 2000 in the fields of fishery biology and management, aquaculture, protection of the aquatic resource, and social and economic issues. EIFAC revised and decided its future programme of work, and in particular the activities which should be carried out until the next session of the Commission in 2004, planned to be held in Poland and preceded by a Symposium on Aquaculture Development – Partnership between Science and Producer Associations.

Codex Alimentarius - Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme.

Volume 1B - General requirements (food hygiene).
Second edition (Revised 2001) Rome, 2001, 254 pp.

The Codex Alimentarius is a code of food standards for all nations. It has been developed by an international commission established in 1962 when the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognized the need for international standards to guide the world's growing food industry and to protect the health of consumers. The purpose of Codex Alimentarius is: "... to guide and promote the elaboration and establishment of definitions and requirements for foods, to assist in their harmonization and, in doing so, to facilitate international trade". Volume 1, General Requirements, of the Codex Alimentarius contains those standards, codes and other texts that are generally applicable to all food commodities. It consists of two parts, the first (Volume 1A) dealing with all matters except food hygiene, the second (Volume 1B) containing general food hygiene texts. It is the basic reference document for all other volumes in the Codex Alimentarius. This revised second edition includes the new texts, amendments and revisions adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission up to and including those texts adopted by the Commission in July 2001.

FAO/WHO Global Forum of Food Safety Regulators. 28-30 January 2002, Marrakesh, Morocco. Improving efficiency and transparency in food safety systems - sharing experiences.

Proceedings of the forum

Over 300 delegates from 110 countries and 17 international organizations participated in this Global Forum to exchange information and experiences and to discuss food safety issues of international importance. All the discussions were based on the principle that regulations must be science-based and built on risk assessment as appropriate to circumstances, and demonstrated a global recognition that actions need to be taken throughout the food chain from farm and fishing boat to the consumer. In the process of sharing experiences, countries learned that it is possible to use food safety regulations to reduce foodborne illness and improve the overall health of their populations. This also helps countries develop their trade opportunities and strengthen consumer confidence in the safety of their food supply.

Report of the World Food Summit: five years later. 10-13 June 2002

The “World Food Summit: five years later” called for an international alliance to accelerate action to reduce world hunger. It also unanimously adopted a declaration calling on the international community to fulfil an earlier pledge to cut the number of hungry people to about 400 million by 2015. That pledge was made at the original World Food Summit in 1996 - the largest-ever global gathering of leaders to address hunger and food security - and progress towards it remained disappointingly slow.

Rapport du Sommet mondial de l'alimentation: cinq ans après. 10-13 juin 2002.

Le “Sommet mondial de l'alimentation: cinq ans après” a appelé l'alliance internationale à intensifier ses efforts pour réduire la faim dans le monde. Il a aussi adopté à l'unanimité une déclaration demandant à la communauté internationale de remplir son engagement précédant, de ramener le nombre des personnes souffrant de la faim à quelque 400 millions d'ici 2015. Cet engagement avait été pris lors du premier Sommet mondial de l'alimentation en 1996 - qui avait constitué le plus grand rassemblement au monde de dirigeants s'attaquant aux problèmes de la faim et de la sécurité alimentaire - mais la lenteur des progrès a été décevante.

Nutrición humana en el mundo en desarrollo

"Nutrición humana en el mundo en desarrollo" estudia los problemas nutricionales más importantes de los países en desarrollo y sugiere programas y políticas apropiados para su solución. Suministra información científica sobre los alimentos, los nutrientes, las causas de la malnutrición, y los desórdenes nutricionales y su prevención. Tres son los requisitos de una nutrición apropiada: la seguridad alimentaria, la buena salud y los cuidados adecuados. De especial importancia son los enfoques multidisciplinarios prácticos para el alivio de la malnutrición. Las estrategias que se basan en los alimentos son el único medio sostenible para mejorar el estado nutricional de toda la población. El aumento de los recursos agrícolas puede tener efectos positivos en los suministros alimentarios, el empleo y los ingresos, y posibilitar el consumo de dietas adecuadas en los países en desarrollo. Esta publicación, que servirá de introducción general a los problemas nutricionales de los mencionados países, se ha concebido como texto de referencia para los trabajadores agrícolas, de la salud, la educación y de otros campos que pretenden resolver, mediante acciones simples y prácticas, los problemas nutricionales en el contexto del desarrollo. La publicación será especialmente útil para los extensionistas que trabajan con poblaciones rurales.

"La Cumbre Mundial sobre la Alimentación: cinco años después" convocó a la formación de una alianza internacional para acelerar la acción encaminada a reducir el hambre en el mundo. También adoptó por unanimidad una declaración que pide a la comunidad internacional cumplir el anterior compromiso de reducir el número de personas hambrientas a alrededor de 400 millones para el año 2015. Ese compromiso, cuyo cumplimiento ha sido decepcionantemente lento, se adquirió en la primera Cumbre Mundial sobre la Alimentación de 1996, la reunión mundial de dirigentes más nutrida que se haya celebrado para tratar los problemas del hambre y la seguridad alimentaria.

The Committee agreed to establish a Sub-Committee on Aquaculture and adopted the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IPOA-IUU) Fishing. It agreed that future reporting on the implementation of the Code of Conduct and related IPOAs should be based on in-depth analysis of problems associated with their efficient implementation, using case studies. COFI welcomed the Medium-Term Plan for Fisheries, identified the expected results of the Programme Committee priority areas of work for the Fisheries Department during the biennium 2002-2003, and areas for future work by its Sub-Committee on Fish Trade.

"The State of Food and Agriculture 2002" is FAO’s annual report on current developments and issues in world agriculture. It monitors the global agricultural situation as well as the overall economic environment surrounding world agriculture, and this year includes an overview of the status of negotiations on agricultural trade following the launch of a new round of multilateral trade negotiations by the World Trade Organization. An overview of the current agricultural situation by main regions in the world, both developing and developed, is presented, with discussion of current issues of importance for agriculture in the various regions. Agriculture, fisheries and forestry, if properly managed, can provide a series of benefits to large sections of people – benefits such as landscape conservation, watershed protection, biodiversity conservation and ecosystem stability. Some of these so-called public goods are global in nature; they benefit all or large sections of humanity. This year’s report discusses some of these global public goods and calls for increased international financial flows towards agriculture and rural areas in order to promote their provision. It also examines one of the possible new mechanisms for this financing: the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) deriving from the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Particular attention is paid to the potential use of the CDM as an instrument for both enhancing carbon sequestration through land-use changes and for reducing rural poverty. Included in this issue is the SOFA 2002 CD-ROM, containing time series data for 150 countries, country groups and regions in English, French and Spanish, together with FAOSTAT TS software to ensure easy access and use.
