Good evening dear colleagues, my contribution will relate to the following item: "1) Hunger and malnutrition In certain circumstances, children work to provide for their food needs. How has child labor in agriculture been approached through food security and nutrition policy and programs (such as school meals, school feeding programs, vegetable gardens, etc.) and what was the role of the actors of agriculture in this process? "
Hereby please find attached my experiences and some information on the effectiveness of the policies and strategies related to question 1), relating how they were implemented and what challenges may have remained in a small community, located in the town of Léogane "Momance" in Haiti.
The Lesser and Greater Antilles where certain Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are located are often the scene of numerous natural disasters, which can often give rise to resounding earthquakes such as that experienced by Haiti in 2010, 2018 or violent cyclones such as "Maria" which affected Dominica among others.
In August 2017, the international NGO “Humanity For The World (HFTW)” seized the opportunity of an observation mission to set up a humanitarian action intended to promote the improvement of living conditions, education, the fight against poverty, the fight against malnutrition with the Momance community, in particular with the school "mixed institution the pioneers of Momance" in partnership with its director Mr Mario LOREMY.
What the members present of "Humanity For The World (HFTW)" find when arriving on site, 7 years after the major earthquake of 2010, is a community completely rooted in resilience.
Indeed, the members present of "Humanity For The World (HFTW)" (Audrey POMIER FLOBINUS and Yolaine FLOBINUS) were able to observe and measure the psychological, economic and social impact of the effects of the earthquake on the Momance community.
The Momance community is located in a small village of Léogâne in Haiti, it has faced many challenges over the past 10 years because there were no wells or running water, no electricity, bad water. living conditions, no school, and most lived on less than $ 2 a day.
In 2010, Léogâne was the epicenter of a devastating earthquake that killed thousands and reduced most of the country to rubble.
When the dust settled, the village chiefs of Momance met and formed a committee which defined a vision for the future of Momance because they all wanted a better future for their children and their community:
- A council of village elders was held
- Land has been ceded for the creation of a school in order to provide quality education to the children of the community "Mixed institution the pioneers of Momance"
- People of trust have been chosen for the education of young people (Mr Mario LOREMY his management team)
- Parents take turns at school to cook and feed students for lunch
- Although they are not yet self-sufficient, we have observed that the inhabitants have set up an agricultural production of corn to supply the school canteen.
- In fact, an American NGO had given them several bags of corn seeds which they planted. During the week, the parents of the village took turns at the bedside of the culture of the new plantation, but on weekends and during the school holidays the children participated in the work of the fields alongside the parents. The challenges were to ensure at least one daily meal for the children of the school but also for members of the Momance community.
In a difficult context or any lack, the determination, the determination shown by this community to get out of it, the pooling of skills, the benevolence of the oldest towards the youngest characterize the resilience of a people.
This experience shows that the joint effort of children and adults to save a community, to protect it from precariousness, from hunger is sometimes useful when the situation requires it. Children need to be aware of the issues that govern their lives. That is why since this event the school has implemented an agricultural program into which the school education program is integrated. All the inhabitants understood the need to transmit and perpetuate agricultural activity within the community. It is a matter of life and death.
Also, thanks to the various and varied donations, to the hard work of the Momance community in the fall of 2012, a well was built, in 2013, the construction phase of a school to accommodate the children of the community was launched, with 2 classrooms.
Today in 2018, the school "Mixed institution the pioneers of Momance" welcomes more than 150 students (with an extension project which is underway), with 4 classrooms, a chapel, an office and a games. Each child also receives a hot meal every day. A medical and dental program has been added and a security fence is also under construction.
Humanity is strong, the instinct for survival of populations, of individuals in precarious situations undoubtedly leads to the sister resilience of creativity conditioning their survival.
It is up to national and international political authorities to preserve the future of humanity by preserving and protecting young people.
My dear colleagues, please find attached my contribution, with the following answers :
1. Does Chapter 1 adequately reflect the current situation of malnutrition and its related causes and impacts, particularly in line with the goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda? What are the underlying problems that currently hinder food systems to deliver healthy diets?
Chapter 1 reports on the current situation of malnutrition and related causes and impacts, but it does not sufficiently emphasize the relationship between the effects of climate change and the agricultural situation of a climate-affected country. in particular, global warming, which leads to the scarcity of water points, and which has direct effects on agricultural production and which generates effects of malnutrition and / or undernutrition on populations unable to move on territories affected by climatic effects .
The report also does not insist on the need to adapt agricultural production according to regions, countries, the environmental context in general, for example, poor agricultural production can lead to soil depletion in water , essential element for developing agricultural production
2. What should be the guiding principles to promote sustainable food systems that improve nutrition and enable healthy diets? What are your comments about the principles outlined in Chapter 2? Are they the most appropriate for your national/regional contexts?
Overall, the established guiding principles are consistent with the predefined direction, however, it is important to democratize and popularize information. To do this, the promotion of the sustainable food system will absolutely have to go through the filter of social networks, if it wishes to impact a maximum of people; The aim is to reach the masses and thus accelerate another level of international awareness, which should be followed by mass actions to improve nutrition in all latitudes.
Many countries affected by malnutrition / and / or undernutrition, are paradoxically hyper-connected, it is to seize this asset to establish a campaign of international communication of shock.
This new approach should be the subject of a reflection on the communication strategy through the establishment of a guiding principle for the promotion of sustainable food systems: Digitization of the world implies the establishment of networks of positive influences to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Example guiding principle: "Strategy and communication for the promotion of sustainable food systems"
3. In consideration of the policy areas identified in Chapter 3 and the enabling factors suggested in paragraph 41 of the Zero Draft, what policy entry points should be covered in Chapter 3, taking into account the need to foster policy coherence and address policy fragmentation?
Given the policy areas identified in Chapter 3 and the enabling factors suggested in paragraph 41 of the draft, the political entry points that should be addressed in Chapter 3 relate to information management. the harmonization between agrarian practices and economic, social and humanitarian development must be ensured. It is necessary to concern the autochthonous people in the definition of the agricultural public policies which often have ancestral agrarian practices in accordance with the environmental context. For example, to promote the specific crop according to the seasons of each country and not according to the economic pressure related to a neutral international consumption system.
4. Can you provide specific examples of new policies, interventions, initiatives, alliances and institutional arrangements which should be considered, as well as challenges, constraints, and trade-offs relevant to the three constituent elements of food systems presented in Chapter 3? In your view, what would the “ideal” food system look like, and what targets/metrics can help guide policy-making
In terms of national public policy, the French government has taken the firm resolve to remove all pesticides from the market to promote the development of a healthier agriculture and thus limit the effects of endocrine disrupters and other health on the French population .
In Martinique, banana producers had to find biological palliatives to protect their production against insects and to continue their agricultural production activities. For example, aerial application of banol (insecticide) was suppressed, along with this event, a farmer found that the product resulting from the decomposition of banana trunks had an insecticidal effect.
5. How would these Voluntary Guidelines be most useful for different stakeholders, especially at national and regional levels, once endorsed by CFS?
These voluntary guidelines will be useful if they are shared and sensitized to national and regional stakeholders; To do this, it is necessary to put in place means of communication strategies that will aim at informing about the advantages of adopting new methods.
He develop a fund dedicated to this strategy, which should not be taken lightly.

« Do not look away, do not hesitate. Recognize that the world is hungry for acts, not words. Act with courage and vision ». Are words that have been spoken by Mr Nelson MANDELA and have touched my soul.
Driven by a universal unconditional love for humanity, guided by hope for a better future for humanity, in 2017, I began the creation of the first international NGO of speculative and operative aspirations based in the Caribbean in the territory. French (https://www.humanityfortheworld.org).
Indeed, Humanity For The World (HFTW), the first humanitarian lobby in the Caribbean, is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-religious, non-profit, humanitarian and professional non-governmental organization specializing in the reduction of suffering in all its forms and in all its forms. defending the fundamental rights of all people in distress around the world and working in the world through the prism of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In an island context, such as that offered by Martinique, such an enterprise remains marginal. Without funding to date, relying solely on the will of its members, the organization based in Martinique, enjoying a reputation in several countries (India, Indonesia, Haiti, Togo, Ghana, Senegal, Cote d ivoire, France (Martinique, Paris)), nevertheless manages to have a lasting impact on the world by participating in the setting up of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we invite you to consult our achievements online (https: // www.humanityfortheworld.org/our-realizations) and our Activity Report (2017-2018) online (https://www.humanityfortheworld.org/business-reports).
Even so, it has been demonstrated in 2018 that hunger has globally declined worldwide from 1 billion to 800 million individuals, According to a UN report, published in September 2018 world hunger continues to rise , 821 million people are now suffering from hunger and more than 150 million children are stunted, threatening the Zero Hunger goal.
Hunger in the world is an abnormal situation due to the unequal distribution of wealth on earth. These plural and multilevel inequalities are maintained by unjust world economic systems of predation favoring the domination of the strong over the weakest. Despite the efforts deployed by the United Nations to federate the States around the question of Humanity, the lure of gain, the profit at any price takes over the reason of Men. Change will only happen if men, without distinction of colors, cultures, religions, become aware of the universality of humanity. Only unconditional love could tip the future in favor of the human cause. With more than 800 million men still living in extreme poverty (with 1.24 and / or 1.90 dollard per day), hunger, inequality, poverty define the contours of the faces of misery. Today, Men are no longer aware of the situation of the world and change can only come from Man for Man.
Our proposal to wipe out hunger in the world, is to urge each organization working for the humanitarian cause to focus its efforts not on a single Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but on the joint achievement of at least 3 Sustainable Development Goals. (SDGs) by action, and in this case, to achieve SDG2 more quickly, we advocate working towards the joint achievement of the following 3 SDGs: SDG1: Poverty Eradication, SDG2: Combating Hunger or Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture, SDG10: Reduced Inequality, and annual assessment of Dedicated Indicators by area:
SDG1: Poverty Eradication
- Monetary poverty rate
- Poverty rate in living conditions
- Intensity of income poverty
- Renunciation to consume protein for financial reasons
- Renunciation of care for financial reasons
SDG2: Fight Hunger or Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture
- Renunciation to consume protein for financial reasons
- Prevalence of overweight and obesity
- Average diversity of arable crops
- Organic farming and farms of high environmental value
- Animal Exposure to Antibiotics (Animal Level of Exposure to Antimicrobials Indicator)
- Consumption of phytosanitary products
- Local breeds at risk of extinction
- Water withdrawals
SDG10: Reduced inequalities
- Growth rate of average standard of living
- Income inequalities
- Inequalities of heritage
- People with broadband at home
- People who have connected to the internet in the last three months
- Renunciation of care for financial reasons
- Housing overcrowding rate
To illustrate our remarks, in 2017, Humanity For The World (HFTW) set up a humanitarian action in Haiti, more specifically at the school "Momance pioneers" in the community Momance located in the city of Léogâne (https://www.humanityfortheworld.org/post/our-actions-in-the-direction-of-humanity). This humanitarian mission was originally intended to jointly address SDGs 1: Poverty Eradication, SDG3: Fostering Well-Being and Health, SDG4: Quality Education, SDG5: Gender Equality, SDG10: Reduced Inequality. We observed, at the end of a year, that the population, prolonged our action by buying plans of corn, tomatoes, started a small agricultural production which participates today to feed sustainably the inhabitants of the community of momance. In conclusion, by feedback, in seeking to improve the lives of children and adults in the community, we finally had an action that had a long-term impact on the achievement of SDG2.
We have observed that in Martinique, referring to sustainable development, often return to refer to SDG7: Use of renewable energies. The analysis of this situation leads us to understand how the effects of a public policy in favor of the environment can lead to a lack of global information on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Indeed, to encourage the French population to change their way of life, by adopting ecological gestures in favor of the environment and the safeguard of the planet, the French state had to put in place a number of measures aimed at attributing tax and financial counterparties to households and businesses.
The observation is the following: there is a lack of knowledge of other areas of Sustainable Development.
The services of the French state such as DEAL Martinique (Direction of the Environment and Development of the Litoral of Martinique) in partnership with certain associations of Martinique, initiated a work of awareness on the SDGs14: aquatic life, ODD15: Protection of terrestrial flora and fauna, SDG6: Sanitation water.
Nevertheless, Humanity For The World (HFTW) is the only organization on the island to offer an unprecedented vision by participating in the transversal achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To act effectively, we must educate, inform, sensitize the population on the various global issues in relation to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is why we communicate daily on the subject through social networks. To quote the last 2 major communications :
- From 30 to 05 May 2019, we linked a non-financial partnership with the French Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity, to raise awareness about SDG2. To do this communication media (video and images) in French, English and Chinese have been published on a specialized online media (MediaTerre) and on social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube, Linkedin, Pinterest) , to raise awareness, to inform on the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG1, SDG2, SDG10.(https://www.humanityfortheworld.org/post/humanity-for-te-world-hftw-partenaire-du-minist%C3%A8re-de-la-transition-%C3%A9cologique-et-solidaire-seed)
- From 01 to 07 April 2019, we linked a non-financial partnership with the REFEDD "French Network of Students for Sustainable Development", to raise awareness on the 17 SDGs, To do this communication media (video and images) in French, English and Chinese have been published on a specialized online media (MédiaTerre) and on social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube, Linkedin, Pinterest), to raise awareness, to inform about the Sustainable Development Goals , including SDG1, SDG2, SDG10 (https://www.humanityfortheworld.org/post/humanity-for-the-world-hftw-partenaire-de-la-refedd-pour-la-promotion-des-17-odd-sedd-2019)
Without having received any subsidies, our motivation is fueled by our vision for Humanity, "universal unconditional love". Thus, since 2017, we have begun training, information and democratization of the 17 SDGs among the people of Martinique and the world. Through the simple fact of our existence on a French territory of the Caribbean, by the communication of our actions, by the lobbying on the social networks and the breasts of the international spheres of power, in favor of the realization of the 17 SDGs we hope to arouse vocations, because the more we will be working for the cause, the more we will look at a better world.
« We believe that education is also about the power of example »

Bonsoir à tous,
Par la présente,trouvez ci-joint notre contribution pour ce sujet :
Pouvez-vous donner des exemples d'actions menées pour réduire la pauvreté, l'insécurité alimentaire et les défis nutritionnels en réaction au changement climatique et aléas climatiques? Les actions peuvent aller du niveau informel au formel et inclure la protection sociale ainsi que des politiques, des projets, des activités, des programmes multisectoriels, etc.
Les petites et grandes Antilles ou se situent certains petits États insulaires en développement (PEID) sont assujettis à de nombreuses catastrophes naturelles, pouvant donner lieu à de retentissent séisme telle que celui qui à touché Haïti en2010 ou encore le violent cyclone « Maria » qui à touché entre autres la Dominique.
En août 2017, l’ONG internationale « Humanity For The World (HFTW) » a mis en place une action pour l’amélioration des conditions de vie, d’éducation, contre la pauvreté, contre la malnutrition auprès de la communauté de Momance, notamment auprès de l’école « institution mixte les pionniers de Momance ».
Humanity For The World (HFTW) est venu en aide directement à la communauté en situation de résilience en apportant un soutien financier et matériel.
À cette occasion, 7 ans après le séisme, l’ONG internationale à pu observer, mesurer l’impact psychologique et social des effets du séisme communauté de Momance.
La communauté de Momance est située dans un petit village de Léogâne en Haïti, elle a dû faire face à de nombreux défis au cours des 10 dernières années ; il n'y avait ni de puits ni eau courante, pas d'électricité, de mauvaises conditions de vie, pas d'école, et la plupart vivaient avec moins de 2 dollars par jour. En 2010, Léogane a été l'épicentre d'un tremblement de terre dévastateur qui a fait des milliers de morts et réduit la majeure partie du pays en décombres. Lorsque la poussière s'est installée, les chefs de village de Momance se sont réunis et ont formé un comité qui a formé une vision pour l'avenir de Momance. Ils voulaient un meilleur endroit pour leurs enfants et leur communauté :
- un conseil des anciens du village s’est tenu
- des terres ont été cédées pour la réalisation d’une école en vue de dispenser une éducation de qualité aux enfants de la communauté « Institution mixte les pionniers de Momance »
- Des personnes de confiance ont été choisies pour l’éducation des jeunes (Mr Mario LOREMY son staff d’encadrement)
- Les parents se relaient à l’école pour effectuer la cuisine et nourrir les élèves au déjeuner
- Bien qu’ils ne soient pas encore autosuffisants, nous avons pu observer que les habitants ont mis en place une production agricole (mais) pour approvisionner la cantine scolaire.
Grâce aux donations diverses et variées, au travail acharner de la communauté de Momance,
À l'automne 2012, un puits a été construit, en 2013, la phase de la construction d’une école pour accueillir les enfants de la communauté a été lancée, avec 2 salles de classe. Aujourd’hui, plus de 150 élèves à l'école, avec 4 salles de classe, une chapelle, un bureau et une aire de jeux. Chaque enfant reçoit également un repas chaud tous les jours. Un programme médical et dentaire a été ajouté et une clôture de sécurité est également en cours de construction. Il y a tellement de changements positifs dans Momance.
Quelles leçons ont été dégagées du renforcement de la résilience et de la capacité d'adaptation des pauvres et des personnes vulnérables dans le contexte du changement climatique et des aléas climatiques?
La résilience dont a fait preuve la communauté de Momance a fait des catastrophes, un pilier, une force qui a transcendé sa souffrance en énergie positive, ce qui leur a redonné l’espoir. Cet espoir a donné naissance à la construction d’une dynamique au sein de la communauté. C’est l’amour, présent à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur de cette communauté qui leur à permis de relever inlassablement la tête face aux catastrophes naturelles qui les a touchés.
C’est la preuve qu’un amour inconditionnel au sein de chaque action mène à un avenir meilleur.
La leçon que Humanity For The World (HFTW) tire de cette observation est que par nature, l’Homme est fort, l’instinct de survie des populations pauvres que l’on pourrait qualifier de « résilience » est à l’origine, de la créativité qu’ils déploient, quelque soit l’ampleur des catastrophes qui les touche.
Quels sont les défis à relever pour réduire la pauvreté et les inégalités et renforcer la capacité d'adaptation des pauvres et des personnes vulnérables au changement climatique et aux aléas climatiques?
Le grand défi est celui de la réconciliation des peuples de la terre
Le grand défi est de parvenir à considérer un Homme dans sa globalité pour ce qu’il représente pour l’Humanité en faisant abstraction de préjugés
Le grand défi est de savoir définir une société durable et résiliente, adaptable à chaque société, chaque population
Le grand défi est de fédérer les peuples du monde autour des mêmes priorités
Le grand défi est de mobiliser la population mondiale autour de la situation de la planète, de la souffrance des peuples victimes des changements climatiques.
Le plus grand défi est de repositionner l’Amour au centre de la vie des Hommes.
Que faut-il tirer de ces expériences? Quelles sont les trajectoires plausibles et les bonnes pratiques que vous recommanderiez pour traiter la pauvreté, la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition dans le contexte du changement climatique et des aléas climatiques?
Humanity For The World (HFTW) à une vision pour le monde : Un amour inconditionnel universel
Nous pensons qu’il est indispensable de recentrer l’Amour au centre de la vie des Hommes.
Il est nécessaire d’appliquer un Amour inconditionnel au centre de chaque action pour évoluer vers un monde meilleur.
Faire de l’amour un étendard mondial sera salutaire, car la solidarité mondiale qui en émanera sera le bras armé qui pourra éradiquer la pauvreté, sécuriser l’alimentation et la nutrition dans un contexte enclin au changements climatiques et empreint aux aléas climatiques.
In this response, please find below our contribution on the subject:
Can you share examples of actions that are being undertaken to reduce poverty, food insecurity and nutrition challenges in response to climate change and climate-related events? Actions can range from informal to formal and include social protection and multisectoral policies, projects, programmes, activities, among others.
The Greater and Lesser Antilles, where some small developing island states are located, are subject to many natural catastrophes, including devastating earthquakes such as the one affecting Haiti in 2010 or again the violent hurricane "Maria" that affected Dominica, among others.
In August 2017, the International NGO Humanity for the World (HFTW) set up a project for improving living conditions, providing education, reducing poverty and malnutrition, for the community of Momance, in particular through the school called “Institution mixte les pionniers de Momance “[ The Pioneers of Momance Co-educational Institution].
Humanity for the World has directly helped this actively resilient community with financial and material support.
In this instance, 7 years after the earthquake, the International NGO could observe and measure the psychological and social impact of the consequences of the earthquake on the Momance community
The Momance community is located in a small village of the Leogane district in Haiti. This village has had to face many challenges in the last 10 years; there were no wells or running water, no electricity, bad living conditions, no school and the majority of people lived on less than 2 dollars a day. In 2010, Leogane was the epicentre of a devastating earthquake which killed many people and left most of the country in ruins. Once the dust settled, the Momance village chiefs met and formed a committee that developed a vision for the future of Momance. They wanted a better place for their children and their community:
- A village council of elders was created.
- Land was donated for building a school called "Institution mixte les pionniers de Momance” so as to provide quality education for the children in the community.
- Trusted people have been chosen for the education of the young (Mr. Mario Loremy and his teaching staff)
- Parents take turns at school to do the cooking and feeding of the children at lunch time.
- Even though they are not yet selfsufficient, we have been able to observe that the people have set up some agricultural production (maize) to supply the school canteen.
Thanks to several and varied donations, and to the unremitting work of the Momance community,
In the autumn of 2012, a well was built; in 2013 construction of a school to receive the children of the community was launched, with 2 classrooms. Today, more than 150 children go to school, with 4 classrooms, a chapel, an office and a playground. Also, each child receives a hot lunch every day. A medical and dental program has been added and also, a security fence is being built. There are so many positive changes in Momance.
What lessons have been drawn from building resilience and adaptive capacity of poor and vulnerable people in the context of climate change and climate-related events?
The resilience shown by the Momance community has turned catastrophe into strength, a force which has turned their suffering into positive energy, and which has rekindled their hope. This hope has given rise to the emergence of a dynamic force at the heart of the community. It is love, present inside and outside this community which has enabled them again and again to raise up their heads in the face of the natural catastrophes that have hit them.
It is proof that an unconditional love at the heart of each action leads to a better future.
The lesson that HFTW draws from this observation is that by nature, Man is strong, the survival instinct of poor people, that one could call resilience, is at the source of the creativity that they deploy, regardless of the extent of the catastrophes that affected them.
What are the challenges of reducing poverty and inequalities and building the adaptive capacity of the poor and vulnerable to climate change and climate related events?
The main challenge is the reconciliation of the peoples of the world.
The main challenge is to come to consider a Person in all their aspects, for what they represent for Humanity by setting aside all prejudice.
The main challenge is to know how to define a sustainable and resilient society, adaptable to each society and population.
The main challenge is to bring together people in the world around the same priorities.
The main challenge is to mobilize the world population around the planet’s situation, the suffering of the victims of climate changes.
The greatest challenge is to reposition love at the center of human life.
What should the world learn from these experiences? What are the plausible pathways and good practices you would recommend to follow when addressing poverty, food security and nutrition in the context of climate change and climate-related events?
Humanity for the World (HFTW) has a vision for the world: Unconditional universal Love.
We believe that it is indispensable to refocus Love at the center of human life.
It is necessary to apply unconditional Love at the center of each action to develop a better world.
To make Love a world standard would be the salutary, because the world solidarity that would emanate from this would be the strong arm that could eradicate poverty, secure food and nutrition in a context prone to climate change and marked by the vagaries of the climate.

Good evening everyone,
Thank you to find attached my contribution via these two answers :
- Is an International Code of Conduct for the Use and Management of Fertilizers beneficial and useful? Who, and why?
- To farmers
This code of conduct for the use and management of fertilizers is beneficial in that it will harmonize agricultural practices worldwide.
Because currently, the use of certain fertilizers suspected for their harmfulness is not prohibited in all the countries ... which does not however prevent the commercial trade of the agricultural products resulting from these agricultures.
This situation disadvantages some farmers (subject to legal restrictions) for the benefit of other farmers (not subject to the same laws) in a competitive market that does not always look at the production patterns of the agricultural products in question, particularly the use of fertilizers. .
- The world population / consumers
This international code of conduct meets the expectations of the world's population, who are increasingly conscious and concerned about the quality of the food they eat, the quality of life of others, their environment and the environmental disturbances that weigh on their lives. health.
Today, many consumers will refuse to consume agricultural products if they are made aware of the fact that farmers (whatever the geographical location) are sick because of the use of fertilizers ... or if this fertilizer represents a potential risk to his health.
Thanks to this code, the traceability of the agricultural product becomes possible (from its conception to the plate)
This international code of conduct is a tool that will reassure the population about global agricultural practices, the state of health of the environment by giving elements.
The interest of the international organizations (FAO, United Nations, EU, etc.) in the use and management of fertilizers testifies to the humanism shown by such organizations. This will boost confidence in the world's population.
- The scientists
This International Code of Conduct is a relevant reference tool for the global scientific community, as it will facilitate its work, particularly in clinical research in public health. Indeed, the harmonization of practices required by this code will facilitate the establishment of a study on a global scale.
Subsequently, it can serve as a support to define and / or redefine a number of good / new practices according to the evolution of knowledge.
Scientists will be able to deepen knowledge on the use and management of fertilizers and thus be able to anticipate certain positive or negative events
- Do you have any other suggestions or comments that are not addressed in the questions above? If yes, please specify.
Nature is by definition balanced ...
With time, modernization, evolution ...
Not having realized this fact early enough, Man to contribute to this manifest imbalance ...
It is not too late …
It is through such actions that we will one day return to the sources of life.
We hope that this tool (This international code of conduct) will be the instrument of the well-being of Man and Nature.
We believe that placing unconditional love at the center of every action will lead us to a better future.

Bonsoir à tous,
Merci de trouver ci-joint ma contribution via ces deux réponses :
- Un Code international de conduite pour l'utilisation et la gestion des engrais est-il bénéfique et utile? A qui, et pourquoi?
- Aux agriculteurs
Ce code de conduite pour l’utilisation et la gestion des engrais est bénéfique dans la mesure où il permettra d’harmoniser les pratiques agricoles à l’échelle mondiales.
Parce que présentement, l’utilisation de certains engrais suspectés pour leur nocivité n’est pas interdite dans tous les pays … ce qui n’empêche pas pour autant les échanges commerciaux des produits agricoles issus de ces agricultures.
Cette situation désavantage certains agriculteurs (soumis à des restrictions légales) au profit d’autres agriculteurs (non soumis aux mêmes lois) sur un marché concurrentiel pas toujours regardant sur les modalités de production des produits agricoles en question, notamment sur l’utilisation des engrais.
- La population mondiale /consommateurs
Ce code international de conduite répond aux attentes de la population mondiale de plus en plus consciente et soucieuse de la qualité de la nourriture qu’elle consomme, de la qualité de vie d’autrui, de son environnement et des perturbations environnementales qui pèsent sur sa santé.
Aujourd’hui, beaucoup de consommateurs refuseront de consommer des produits agricoles si est porté à leur connaissance le fait que des agriculteurs (quelque soit le lieu géographique) soient malades à cause de l’utilisation d’engrais … ou encore si cet engrais représente un risque potentiel pour sa santé.
Grâce à ce code, la traçabilité du produit agricole devient possible (de sa conception jusqu’à l’assiette)
Ce code international de conduite est un outil qui permettra de rassurer la population sur les pratiques agricoles mondiales, sur l’état de santé de l’environnement en donnant des éléments.
L’intérêt que portent les organisations internationales (FAO, Nations Unies, UE…etc.) sur l’utilisation et la gestion des engrais témoignent de l’humanisme dont font preuve de telles organisations. Ce qui renforcera la confiance à la population mondiale.
- Les scientifiques
Ce code international de conduite est un outil pertinent, de référence pour la communauté scientifique mondiale, dans la mesure où il facilitera ses travaux, notamment en matière de recherche clinique en santé publique. En effet, l’harmonisation des pratiques voulues par ce code facilitera la mise en place d’étude à l’échelle mondiale.
Par la suite, il pourra servir de support pour définir et/ou redéfinir un certain nombre de bonnes / nouvelles pratiques en fonction de l’évolution des connaissances.
Les scientifiques pourront approfondir les connaissances quant à l’utilisation et la gestion des engrais et ainsi être en capacité d’anticiper certains évènements positifs ou négatifs
- Avez-vous d'autres suggestions ou commentaires qui ne sont pas traités dans les questions ci-dessus? Dans l'affirmative, veuillez préciser.
La nature est par définition équilibrée...
Avec le temps, la modernisation, l‘évolution…
N’ayant pas pris conscience suffisamment tôt de ce fait, l’Homme à contribuer à ce manifeste déséquilibre…
Il n’est pas trop tard …
C’est par de telles actions que nous parviendrons un jour de revenir aux sources de la vie.
Nous espérons que cet outil (Ce code international de conduite) sera l’instrument du bien-être de l’Homme et de la Nature.
Nous pensons que placer un amour inconditionnel au centre de chaque action, nous mènera vers un avenir meilleur.

Bonsoir à tous,
La Martinique est un petit bout de France située dans les Caraibes, nous bénéficions donc d'un climat tropical.
Trouvez ci-joint ma contribution pour ce qui concerne :
- Récupération de l'eau (et pratiques de stockage)
Je me souviens que mes ancêtres avaient pour coutume de stocker l'eau des pluies, dans des contenants diverses et variés (Vase en terre cuite, fût en bois, fût en plastique, bidon en plastique, calebasse, ...etc.) en fonction de la période, de leur capacité, et de leur niveau social.
Très souvent, ces contenants étaient couvert pour protèger l'eau.
Pour l'assainissement de cette eau, ils faisaient usage, de matières naturelles comme le charbon de bois et/ou le souffre, qu'ils laissaient au fond du récipient.
Ces pratiques jugées à l'époque archaiques avaient été abandonnées au profit de la modernité de l'évolution du monde et des cultures.
En 2018, les pratiques ancestrales en matière de stockage sont de nouveaux à l'ordre du jour même si elles ont été quelques peu revisitées.
En effet, les modalités de la nouvelle feuille de route en matière de développement durable transversal (ODD6 : Eau propre et assainissement) reprises par le Ministère de la transition écologique et solidaire de la France, recommande dans le cadre de l'amélioration de la gestion, de la préservation des ressources naturelles, notamment de l'eau en cas de sécheresse, l'option de citernes pour les usages domestiques.
Des aides d'états sont allouées pour permettre à chacun de posséder une citerne (aux normes sanitaires européennes) pour le stockage de l'eau des pluies.
Martinique is a French territory located in the Caribbean, so we have a tropical climate.
Find enclosed my contribution to those whom it may concern:
- Water recovery (and storage methods)
I remember that my ancesters had the habit of keeping the rain water, in several different kinds of containers (clay pots, wooden and plastic barrels, plastic buckets, gourds, etc.) according to the season, their capacity and their social level.
Very often, these containers were covered to protect the water.
For the purification of this water, they used natural substances like wood charcoal and/or sulphur, which they left at the bottom of the receptacle.
These practices considered old fashioned at the time have been abandoned in line with the modernization of the evolution of the world and customs.
In 2018, these old ways of storing are again in general use even if they have been a bit modernized.
In fact, the methods of the new roadmap in terms of transverse sustainable development (SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation) adopted by the Ministry of Ecological and Inclusive Transition, recommend in the context of improving the management and preservation of natural resources, in particular water in case of drought, the option of cisterns for household use.
State assistance is provided for to allow everyone to have a cistern (conforming to European sanitary norms) for the storage of rain water.
