Promoting economic diversification and decent rural employment towards greater resilience to food price volatility 

The poor are particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of high and volatile food prices. Available evidence, while not conclusive, indicates that both urban and rural poor, including poor farmers, are particularly exposed because they are typically net buyers of food (Ivanic and Martin, 2008). Food accounts for as much as three-quarters of the expenditures of poor households in some countries.

Integrating Food Security Information in National Statistical Systems 

FAO has a global mandate to monitor progress made towards achieving the targets on hunger set by the MDG in 2000 and the WFS in 1996. It tracks this progress by providing regular estimates of the proportion and number of people whose daily dietary energy consumption (DEC) is less than the minimum daily dietary energy requirement (MDER). The methodology for estimating hunger, or the prevalence of undernourishment indicator, is (...)

Training Guide: Gender and Climate Change Research in agriculture and food security for rural development 

Both women and men play a significant role in safeguarding food security, and their respective roles and responsibilities need to be well understood to ensure that men and women benefit equally from climate-smart agriculture practices. Little research, however, has been undertaken to understand how men and women are adapting to climate change, mitigating emissions and maintaining food security. As one of many steps toward (...)

Good practices in building innovative rural institutions to increase food security 

Continued population growth, urbanization and rising incomes are likely to continue to put pressure on food demand. International prices for most agricultural commodities are set to remain at 2010 levels or higher, at least for the next decade (OECD-FAO, 2010). Small-scale producers in many developing countries were not able to reap the benefits of high food prices during the 2007-2008 food price crises. Yet, this upward food (...)

Mobile technologies for food security, agriculture and rural development 

Role of the public sector

New information and knowledge are critical inputs for the practice of agriculture the world over. This is especially true for resource-poor farmers living in rural areas in Asia. Yet most of these farmers are not only resource poor but also information poor. Mobile technology holds great promise in delivering information to resource-poor farmers and as a consequence to improving their livelihoods. The number of mobile (...)

Improving Policy Response to the Differentiated Impacts of High and Volatile Food Prices on Rural Women 

In a high and volatile food price setting, two aspects determine rural women’s ability to absorb and respond to shocks: the inequalities that create a gender gap in rural development and women’s traditional roles in society. This chapter points to these two aspects that in general terms reduce women’s ability to cope with food price volatility. Rural women, traditionally responsible for providing food and health in the (...)

Decent rural employment for food security: A case for action 

Promoting decent employment is essential to achieving food security and reducing poverty. Simply put, in order to be able to access food, poor people rely on the income from their labour, because it is often the only asset they have. This was explicitly acknowledged through the inclusion of target 1.B “Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young people” in the Millennium (...)

Effects of global warming on vulnerability to food insecurity in rural Nicaragua 

There is growing evidence that global warming will have a substantial negative impact on agricultural yields, in particular in developing countries. This constitutes a risk for rural households, and unless these households are able to manage this risk, they will become increasingly vulnerable to food insecurity. In using data on Nicaragua, this paper demonstrates how an econometric model can be used to inform decision makers (...)

Interventions in water to improve livelihoods in rural areas 

While water control is often not the only limiting factor in crop production in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), it is often the starting point for any improvement in agricultural productivity. In many areas, farmers work with poor soils, they have limited financial credit, they apply too little fertilizer, and they are unable to harvest and deliver their crops to market in a timely fashion. However, in many arid and semi-arid (...)
