Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

The FAO Chief Scientist Office

Dear Participants,
We are thankful to all who submitted a case study in response to our recent call, and truly value the effort and time dedicated.

Following a review of the submissions, the seven most impactful, compelling and relevant case studies were selected (see below), although the decision was not easy due to the high quality of the submissions received. The selection of success stories aims to encompass and capture a broad range of technologies and innovations that are being used across all segments of agrifood systems. We also plan on putting together a compendium of all relevant case studies.
  1. Production d’un biopesticide à partir des épluchures de manioc et sa valorisation dans la conservation des grains. Pauline Mounjouenpou, Director of Research, Chief of scientific programming and Intellectual Properties unit, Institute of Agricultural Research for Development (IRAD), Cameroon
  2. Leveraging solar food processing technologies for valorization of agrifood systems: A case study of innovative climate actions by tribal women farmers in India. Yogesh D. Jadhav, Chief Operating Officer, Barli Development Institute for Rural Women (BDIRW), India
  3. Buzzing for Climate Resilience: Bee Breeding Innovations and Their Role in Sustainable Agrifood System Transformation. Jaber Amin, PhD candidate, Faculty of Agriculture, Animal Science Department, Cukurova University, Turkiye
  4. El caso del Sistema Integrado de Producciones Agroecológicas. Griselda Muñoz and Sergio Montico, Faculty of Agrarian Sciences-UNR, Argentina
  5. Soil pollution management in vegetable fields in the Eastern Nile Delta. Ehab A. Ibrahim, Chief Researcher, Horticulture Research Institute, Agricultural Research Center (ARC), Egypt
  6. Promoting the Adoption of Bioponics: Utilizing Recycled Organic Residues as a Sustainable Resource to Enhance Local Food Production in the Sahrawi Refugee Camps. Oxfam (Belgium and Algeria) in collaboration with University of Liège (Belgium) and Fraunhofer IGB (Germany) as a consortium
  7. Scaling Up: Vanuatu's Resilient Indigenous Food System - A Fusion of Water Taro, Shrimp, Eel, and Water Cress. Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Forestry, Fisheries and Biosecurity, Government of Vanuatu & FAO Subregional Office for the Pacific Islands, Samoa

These case studies will be presented at a dedicated session at the upcoming FAO Science and Innovation Forum 2023, and we invite you to participate in the discussion.
