“The state of the world’s land and water resources for food and agriculture: Systems at breaking point (SOLAW 2021)” Synthesis Report comes at a time when human pressures on the systems of land, soils and fresh water are intensifying, just when they are being pushed to their productive limits. The impacts of climate change are already constraining rainfed and irrigated production over and above the environmental consequences resulting from decades of unsustainable use. SOLAW 2021 provides solutions away from the business-as-usual approach, injecting a sense of urgency in making the necessary transformation at the roots of the global food systems - water, land and soils – and inspiring uptake by decision-makers at the global, regional and national levels. The SOLAW 2021 Synthesis Report presents the main findings and recommendations of the full SOLAW 2021 report and background studies, which will be published in early 2022.
The State of Food and Agriculture 2021 presents country-level indicators of the resilience of agrifood systems. The indicators measure the robustness of primary production and food availability, as well as physical and economic access to food. They can thus help assess the capacity of national agrifood systems to absorb shocks and stresses, a key aspect of resilience. The report analyses the vulnerabilities of food supply chains and how rural households cope with risks and shocks. It discusses options to minimize trade-offs that building resilience may have with efficiency and inclusivity. The aim is to offer guidance on policies to enhance food supply chain resilience, support livelihoods in the agrifood system and, in the face of disruption, ensure sustainable access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to all.
This strategy specifically targets the different types of the private sector from large national and multinational corporations, to financial institutions, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), industry and trade organizations and consortia which represent private sector interests, farmers and farmers’ organizations, producers’ organizations and cooperatives and philanthropic foundations.
The GLOBEFISH Price Dashboard takes the prices GLOBEFISH monitors for fisheries and aquaculture products in Europe and presents this information in a powerful and user-friendly interface. It provides a dynamic tool in facing the challenges of monitoring real-time data and making information accessible to end-users. In the GLOBEFISH Price Dashboard, prices are automatically drawn from various sources along the value chain into a central database and updated once a week.
