Chaîne de valeur du riz au Mali - Analyse prospective et stratégies pour une croissance inclusive et durable

Cette étude est une évaluation multi-impact de la filière riz au Mali sur la période 2020-2030. Les résultats indiquent que le Mali peut être auto-suffisant et exportateur net de riz à l’horizon 2030 si la production croît à un rythme d’au moins 6,6 pour cent par an pendant 10 ans passant de 2,8 à 5,5 millions de tonnes. De façon spécifique, cette croissance entrainera la hausse des revenus des riziculteurs de 494 à 885 USD en moyenne. Le revenu par producteur dans la riziculture en maîtrise totale connaitra une amélioration de 1 485 à 2 994 USD soit une croissance [...]

Rice value chain in Ghana – Prospective analysis and strategies for sustainable and pro-poor growth

Based on past experience of partnership on support to National Rice Development Strategies (NRDS) within Coalition for African Rice Development (CARD), AfricaRice and FAO decided to conduct a series of rice policy reviews for Ghana, Ivory Coast and Mali in 2019. The following study uses the Ex-ante Carbon-balance Value Chain tool (EX-ACT VC), developed in 2016 by FAO, to assess the Ghanaian rice value chain’s environmental (in terms of climate mitigation and climate resilience) and socio-economic impact for a business as usual scenario in 2020 compared to a growth scenario for 2030.Promotion of good agricultural practices (GAP), the reduction of [...]

Analyse de la chaîne de valeur riz en Côte d’Ivoire - Optimiser l’impact socio-économique et environnemental d’un scénario d’autosuffisance à l’horizon 2030

Les importations du riz en Côte d’Ivoire ont connu une forte croissance ces dernières années en dépit du potentiel d’accroissement de la production locale. Afin de réaliser une autosuffisance en riz à l’horizon 2030, le gouvernement ivoirien s’est donné pour ambition d’accroitre la production et les capacités de transformation locale. Ainsi, cette étude est une analyse prospective de la filière riz en Côte d’Ivoire sur la période 2020-2030. L’objectif est d’évaluer l’impact économique et environnemental de la situation actuelle de la filière comparé à celui d’un Scénario futur d’amélioration (Scénario de réalisation de l’auto-suffisance alimentaire). Enfin, l’étude propose une évaluation [...]

Global review of agricultural census methodologies and results (2006 – 2015). World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2010

At the end of each census round, FAO reviews and assesses national census practices, methodologies and results, and summarizes the findings in methodological publications, under the Statistical Development Series (SDS). For the WCA 2010 round (2006–2015), these assessments have been presented in two separate publications. The first one, titled “Main results and metadata by country” (SDS 17), published in 2019, presented a compendium of census metadata and main results for a record number of 127 countries and territories. The SDS 18, i.e. this publication, presents in its first part (Chapters 1 to 12) a methodological review of the national censuses. [...]

How to feed the world in times of pandemics and climate change? Opportunities for innovation in livestock systems

Progress towards Zero Hunger must be protected from the dual challenges of pandemics and climate change. The frequency of infectious disease outbreaks – including the emergence of novel viruses and zoonotic diseases – is expected to continue rising as livestock, food security, economies, and global health are increasingly threatened by a destabilizing climate. At the same time, malnutrition is unacceptably high across all regions of the world. In 2019, nearly one in ten people in the world were exposed to severe levels of food insecurity.The 13th Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) in 2021 is seeking recommendations, guided by [...]
