A NEW DEAL FOR SCHOOL GARDENS        
subjects:  Food and Nutrition and School Gardening              
levels and types of education: Primary education     Secondary and vocational education         
MUEHLHOF ELLEN
FAO, ROME, 2010
___________________________________________________________________________________________________
English
School gardens are cultivated areas around or near to schools, tended at least partly by students. Mainly they produce vegetables and fruits; activities may include small-scale animal husbandry and fishery, beekeeping, ornamental plants and shading, and small-scale staple food production. School gardens are run for a variety of reasons. Some that are gaining prominence in all parts of the world are the promotion of good diet, nutrition education, and the development of livelihood skills, together with the power to extend this learning beyond the school itself in a variety of ways. This educational focus can be an important long-term contributor to national health and food security. This paper is a useful tool for teachers in rural areas but also for planners, educators on rural development and managers of agricultural education.

The Codex Alimentarius, or the food code, addresses consumers, food producers and processors, national food control agencies and the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius Commission was established in 1962 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and by the World Health Organization (WHO). With more than 170 member countries, the Commission is a worldwide forum on food safety, consumer protection and fair practices in the food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is a continuously updated guide for governments and other interested parties in the regulatory framework needed for food control systems, food safety and consumer protection. The international standards contained in the Codex Alimentarius are recognized as benchmarks by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Over 400 standards, guidelines and codes of practice have been adopted to date on: food labelling and crop hygiene, commodities, food safety assessment for food derived from biotechnology, methods of analysis and sampling, food inspection and certification procedures.

This book is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. This book was prepared by the FAO Interdepartmental Working Group on Training for Technicians and Capacity Building within the framework of Education for Rural People to exchange good practices. Access to virtual training materials in the area of agriculture and food security represents an enormous potential for enhancing and enriching the capacity of technicians, especially of those working in rural areas. Education and training strategies need to be integrated within sustainable rural development strategies, through plans of action that are multisectoral and interdisciplinary. This means creating new partnerships among policy-makers and practitioners working in agriculture and rural development and those working in education.

The seasonal rise and fall of the Tonle Sap Lake is essential for the existence of nearly two million Cambodians living on an ecosystem based on rice and hundreds of different species of fish, birds, plants, and insects, each contributing to the reciprocal benefit of all. But uncontrolled deforestation, the construction of dams on the Mekong River and sophisticated commercial fishing techniques are spoiling the environment and reducing food security. This video aims at creating awareness in the communities, explaining how to exploit in a sustainable way their delicate environments using modern techniques. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.

This Guide is written for the people who are involved in the planning, design and implementation of irrigation programmes. It is therefore intended for irrigation engineers, members of multidisciplinary identification and formulation missions, staff of rural development projects, government employees, staff of NGOs, and engineering and consulting firms. This document is a guide to the integration of socio-economic and gender issues in the sub-sector irrigation. The Guide has been developed in the context of the FAO Socioeconomic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Programme. SEAGA is an approach to development based on an analysis of socio-economic patterns and participatory identification of women and men’s priorities. The objective of this approach is to close the gaps between what people need and what development delivers. By placing socioeconomic analysis and gender analysis together, SEAGA helps us learn about community dynamics, including the linkages among social, economic and environmental patterns. The purpose of the SEAGA Sector Guide on Irrigation is to support gender-responsive participatory planning of irrigation schemes, and to integrate socio-economic and gender issues in the planning process. The ultimate aim is to improve irrigation scheme performance while strengthening the position of rural women and disadvantaged groups.

The module contributes to the JFFLS approach by helping the students acquire the knowledge, skills and values they need to be able to build their future and in the specific in knowing and protecting their land, property and human rights and the rights of others. In this way, JFFLS participants can contribute to building a culture of rights in their communities and environments. Secure property rights are central to any effort to address inequality, poverty, vulnerability to food insecurity and sustainable development in general. The JFFLS programme, especially its life skills component, is an excellent channel for introducing the topic of land and property rights to young people. Learning about land and property rights will help students understand the impact that gender inequality in land and property rights can have on people’s livelihoods and food security, and the role that these rights can play in building and strengthening livelihoods and in reducing poverty. This module is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners.

This training package targets agricultural extension agents and field workers in rural areas of Latin America and the Caribbean. It aims at promoting home gardening as a step towards enhanced food security, better community and household nutrition. The home garden can be used to raise many kinds of vegetable, fruits, staple crops, medicinal plants and spices as well as animal and fish. Even a small plot of land, if well managed, can make a substantial contribution towards meeting household food needs and improving nutrition. These gardens have an established tradition and offer great potential for improving household food supplies.

This video sets out the Chad nomads’ life which is organized following the rules dictated by their cattle and the frailty of the dry environment in which they live. Now, changing climatic conditions, new economic habits and intensive cultivation in wet environments are putting dry areas at risk, pushing the nomads away from their traditional lands onto the islands of the lake. Helping them adapt to this new life is possible only by combining tradition and new technology. This video is of special interest to secondary school teachers and students, adult community groups and rural development specialists.

This is a website which contains a package of training material for the development and implementation of a Participatory Training & Extension Programme in Farmers' Water Management. The two main documents are The Guidelines and Farmers' Training Manual for PT&E-FWM. Besides this, the training package contains a collection of various documents and audiovisual materials to help in the development and implementation of training programmes for farmers and field staff in order to facilitate the introduction of appropriate water control technologies and better water management techniques. Participatory Training and Extension (PT&E) has proved to be an effective tool to establish the appropriate support structure to assist and advise farmers in irrigation development and management. PT&E is in particular useful for small holder irrigation and in the case of irrigation management transfer programmes. Farmers Water Management (FWM) refers to all water control techniques, technologies and related activities under the direct control and responsibility of farmers. FWM is carried out on an individual basis, by each farmer on his/her own field and farm as well as by a group of farmers, who jointly manage a hydraulic unit and share water from the same source.

UNDERSTANDING ACCESS TO SEEDS AND PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES. WHAT CAN A LIVELIHOODS PERSPECTIVE OFFER?

Access to seeds and plant genetic resources (PGRs) is a vital element of food security and sustainable development. This study uses a livelihoods perspective to facilitate understanding of the role played by seeds and PGRs in rural people’s livelihoods. A central argument of this study is that the value-added of a livelihoods approach lies in its attention to the importance of access to resources and to the institutions, both formal and informal, that shape and mediate such access. Given the complexity and contextual nature of access questions, three cases are used. The case studies are: emergency seed relief, wild and weedy foods, and farmer engagement with agricultural research systems. Together, the case studies demonstrate: the assumptions made about access/lack of access; neglected channels through which people access seeds and PGRs; links with other livelihood resources; and the way that local questions of access are ‘connected up’ to institutions and processes at national and international levels.
