Voluntary Guidelines for Mainstreaming Biodiversity into Policies, Programmes and National and Regional Plans of Action on Nutrition

The Guidelines aim to support countries in the development of nutrition-sensitive agriculture practices that consider the nutrient composition of biodiversity for food and agriculture (in particular the varieties, cultivars and breeds of plants and animals used as food, as well as wild, neglected and underutilized species) to address malnutrition in all its forms. The Guidelines are divided into three main elements: Research, implementation, and awareness. Examples of activities are provided on how mainstreaming could be implemented depending on each country’s needs and capabilities.

The Global Agriculture Perspectives System (GAPS). Version 1.0. ESA Working Paper No. 16-06

The purpose of this document is to provide a full description of FAO’s partial equilibrium modelling system known as GAPS. GAPS has been developed by FAO to study the development of global food markets in the long-term and to assess how socioeconomic fluctuations, climate change and investment pay-offs may affect future global food demand. GAPS is a simple self-contained model which specifies demand and supply for agricultural and food commodities with global coverage and great detail for low and middle income countries. It is shaped around FAOSTAT data on production and commodity balance sheets, which enables a detailed specification of agricultural and food commodities. Furthermore, GAPS allows to assess [...]

Éradiquer la faim et la malnutrition. La collaboration entre la FAO et les parlementaires sur la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle

L’élimination de la faim et de la malnutrition sont au cœur des efforts de la FAO. Dans ce but, toutes les parties prenantes doivent être impliquées, y compris les parlementaires, les acteurs de la société civile et le secteur privé. Il a été démontré que les améliorations en matière de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle sont dues principalement aux politiques, aux programmes et aux cadres ancrés dans la législation. En matière de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle, les parlementaires sont des dépositaires essentiels des engagements politiques et sont donc des partenaires incontournables pour réaliser l’objectif de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle. La FAO, à travers la [...]

Meeting Fuel and Energy Needs in Protracted Crises. The SAFE approach

This note focuses on the topic of access to fuel and energy in protracted crises, and the possible solutions using the SAFE approach, illustrated by case studies from FAO's interventions in protracted crisis situations. Access to fuel and energy – vital for food security – is often highly constrained in protracted crises. The risks posed by limited access to fuel and energy are multiple and diverse depending on the context, including malnutrition, environmental degradation, a high work burden for women, gender-based violence (GBV) and unsustainable livelihood activities. The inter-agency Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) initiative and FAO’s work on [...]
