Call for applications for the second edition of the International Innovation Award for Sustainable Agriculture

Since 2018, FAO and the Federal Government of Switzerland encourage innovation by publically recognizing best practices through the International Innovation Award for Sustainable Food and Agriculture. The award does not only acknowledge digital innovation, but also new or existing products or practices that are used in a specific context, to increase effectiveness, competitiveness and resilience. The second edition of this Award has been launched, which is open to individuals, private companies and institutions. It comprises two categories:

• Category A awards excellence in digitization and innovation for sustainable food systems (USD 30 000)
• Category B recognises an innovation that empowers youth in sustainable food systems (USD 30 000)

In the spirit of the forthcoming Food Systems’ Summit in 2021 and aligned to the aspirations and goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the candidates should demonstrate the important role of their innovation in transforming food systems through sustainable food and agriculture and the improvement of food security and nutrition for all, particularly in the face of increased environmental challenges. In line with the requirements and technical competencies of the Federal Office of Agriculture of Switzerland, all innovations must apply to agriculture and pastoral systems only. 

This call is open until 19 March 2021.

¿Cómo pueden ayudar las políticas y estrategias agrícolas a poner fin al trabajo infantil en la agricultura?

Hoy en día, cerca de un 71 por ciento del trabajo infantil en el mundo -108 millones de niños- se desarrolla en el sector agrícola.El trabajo infantil perpetúa el ciclo de pobreza de los niños afectados, sus familias y comunidades, convirtiéndoles -probablemente- en la población rural pobre del futuro.Sus comentarios y contribuciones serán fundamentales para identificar y documentar buenas -y prometedoras- prácticas que podrían impulsar investigaciones adicionales -basadas en datos- y ser reproducidas en otros entornos.
