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.

More information on this call and on how to apply can be accessed here

Comment les politiques et les stratégies agricoles aident-elles à mettre un terme au travail des enfants dans l’agriculture?

Le présent document présente une synthèse de la discussion en ligne sur le thème Comment les politiques et stratégies agricoles peuvent-elles contribuer à éradiquer le travail des enfants dans l’agriculture? tenue sur le Forum global sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition (Forum FSN) de la FAO...


Comment les politiques et stratégies agricoles peuvent-elles contribuer à éradiquer le travail des enfants dans l'agriculture?

Aujourd’hui, on estime à 108 millions le nombre d’enfants qui travaillent dans l'agriculture, soit environ 71 pour cent de la main d’œuvre infantile. Le travail des enfants perpétue le cycle de la pauvreté pour les enfants concernés, leurs familles et leurs communautés et risque de les condamner à la pauvreté rurale de demain. Vos commentaires et contributions permettront d'identifier et de documenter les bonnes pratiques et les méthodes prometteuses pour lesquelles la recherche fondée sur des données probantes et sa reproduction pourraient être envisagées.
