Cohérence des politiques agricoles et alimentaires au Sénégal pour la période 2010–2015. Série de notes techniques

Cette note s’emploie à évaluer la cohérence des politiques agricoles et alimentaires mises en œuvre au Sénégal entre 2010 et 2015. L’analyse révèle notamment une hausse et un rééquilibrage des dépenses publiques en soutien à la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition. Toutefois, les politiques agricoles et alimentaires du Sénégal continuent de souffrir d’un déficit de cohérence, perceptible à l’échelle du secteur agricole et de ses sous-secteurs. Les cultures végétales jouissent d’une attention prioritaire au détriment de l’élevage et de la pêche, sans pour autant répondre à un objectif politique précis. Les investissements consentis dans les infrastructures de pêche et d’élevage [...]

The ENACT course: education for effective nutrition in action

ENACT is a course for professional development in nutrition education. FAO developed the course between 2012 and 2016 after a needs assessment exercise revealed that professional training in this field was almost non-existent and that nutrition education often failed to go beyond imparting information and advice. The ENACT course uses a practical approach to nutrition education that has students practicing what they have learned, reflecting on problems and case studies, and discussing what works and why. It consists of ten units, plus one optional unit (5A Theory) that cover the basic principles and practice of nutrition education, and includes activities designed to [...]
