Bienvenue au nouveau bulletin trimestriel - NWFP Update!

Nous avons fusionné l'ancien  NWFP Digest et Non-Wood News dans un seul e-bulletin -  NWFP Update.   Tout en possédant un grand nombre des mêmes caractéristiques de ses prédécesseurs, nous mettons l'accent sur les vues et contributions de nos lecteurs, avec l'espoir de construire une plate-forme dynamique pour les praticiens d'échanger des vues sur les PFNL dans le long terme.

Nous aimerions vous entendre! Nous invitons nos lecteurs à envoyer des contributions (y compris des documents récents, des projets, des ateliers, des articles, etc.) à:

NWFP Update 2018/14 This issue focuses on NWFPs and the "bioeconomy", or the economic activities that use renewable biological resources -- in this case NWFPs -- for the production of goods, services, food and energy. Special emphasis is given to the Bioeconomy conference held in Finland: Paltola Rainer of LUKE provides us with a summary under regional dispatches. [more]
NWFP Update 2018/13 This issue has a specific focus on Southern Africa, in particular on the Miombo woodlands. Through its numerous goods and services, Miombo is thought to support the lives and livelihoods of more than 100 million rural poor and 50 million urban people. In this issue, Marc Dumans-Johansen shares insights from Zimbabwe, where a workshop was held between Miombo countries and international organizations in an effort to bolster transboundary collaboration to protect the woodlands and support those whose food and energy systems rely on this vast ecosystem.

NWFP Update 2017/12 This edition focuses on certification, standards and labels for NWFPs, a complex issue because of the diversity of products involved, the various end uses (from food to medicine), the seasonality of products, and so on. In our opening piece, Giulia Corradini and Davide Pettenella from the University of Padova provide an overview of the issue, giving examples of some different standards and certification schemes which many NWFPs fall under.

NWFP Update 2017/11 After popular demand, this issue focuses on forest berries. In this edition, we feature a wide variety of berries coming from vastly different production systems, regions and environments -- from the Amazonian “superfruit” acai to the “wild” blueberries in Maine to several others in between. Some of these berries push the boundaries of what qualifies as a NWFP, or perhaps simply reflect the historical trajectory of many NWFPs which find themselves moving along the continuum between wild and domesticated species. [more]
NWFP Update 2016/10 The last issue of the year is dedicated to a new FAO report, Vivre et se nourrir (Living in and from central African Forests), based on ten years of FAO work on NWFPs in Central Africa. The projects, which ran from 2005 to 2016, mark one of the longest-running FAO forestry initiatives aimed at enhancing the understanding and contribution of forests and trees to food and nutritional security. [more]
NWFP Update 2016/9 In this issue, we capture perspectives from a handful of countries on WEF developments and innovations. In our special feature, Eric Boa, senior researcher from the University of Aberdeen, walks us through the changing research and development agenda for WEF. In our interview, we hear from a familiar voice, expert Enrico Vidale, to understand the income generating opportunities WEF provide, and the latest developments in legislation related to harvesting in Europe. [more]
NWFP Update 2016/8 Perspectives on NWFPs: Taking stock, and moving forward. FAO’s NWFP Programme has been operating for over 25 years to improve the sustainable utilization of non-wood forest products (NWFPs) to contribute to the responsible management of the world's forests, conserve their biodiversity, and improve income generation and food security. We are now taking time to pause and reflect on past experiences and gather views and expectations for the future. Contributors to this issue include Dr. Charlie Shackleton from Rhodes University, South Africa, who opens the issue with his views on steps to achieving his “vision” for NWFPs. [more]
NWFP Update 2016/7 A special issue on the relationship between trees and bees from the FAO Forestry non-wood forest products team. [more]
NWFP Update 2015/6 This month marks an important milestone in development, as the post-2015 development agenda is set to be adopted at the United Nations Summit in New York, USA . In this issue, we look at health and well-being, Goal No. 3 of the new Sustainable Development Goals, through the prism of NWFPs and forests. [more]
NWFP Update 2015/5 In this first issue for 2015, we tackle bushmeat, or the harvesting of wild animals from forests for food and non-food purposes (medicine, culture, recreation). Bushmeat has long been a part of the diets of forest dwellers as an important source of protein, micronutrients, fats and also fibre and is increasingly consumed in urban areas. It is also an important source of income for many communities. [more]
This issue focuses on “foraging”, understood as the practice of gathering uncultivated plants from the wild. [more]
This issue is dedicated to education and communication initiatives related to non-wood forest products and non-timber forest products. [more]
Welcome to our first issue for 2014, which will focus on the institutional dimensions of NWFPs and the degree to which legal and institutional frameworks on NWFPs should be improved. I [more]
Non-wood forest products (NWFPs) are goods of biological origin other than wood, derived from forests, other wooded land and trees outside forests. [more]
