Burkina Faso. Socio-economic context and role of agriculture. Country fact sheet on food and agriculture policy trends

Burkina Faso has succeeded in achieving the Maputo Declaration target by allocating at least 10 percent of the national budget to agriculture almost every year since 2003. Most of these expenditures have been allocated to support the production of cotton, one of the country’s main exports, through input subsidies and minimum prices to producers. However, a large portion of the country’s agricultural investments as well as social safety net programmes remain heavily dependent on donor funding.

Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture for Food Security and Nutrition A Report by the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition June 2014. HLPE Report 7

Fish plays a key role for food security. It is a primary source of protein and essential nutrients. Fisheries, aquaculture and related activities provide income and livelihoods for numerous communities across the world, including small-scale fisheries. The growing demand for fish questions the sustainability of marine fisheries and aquaculture, now a fundamental supplier of fish. The report considers the environmental, social and economic challenges faced by all actors towards a sustainable supply of fish, sustainable livelihoods of fish-dependent communities and an equitable access to fish for the good nutrition of all populations worldwide. It presents policy-oriented analysis and recommendations addressed to governments, private sector and civil society [...]

Food Losses and Waste in the Context of Sustainable Food Systems. A Report by the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition. HLPE Report 8

According to FAO, almost one-third of food produced for human consumption – approximately 1.3 billion tonnes per year – is either lost or wasted globally. Food losses and waste (FLW) impact both food security and nutrition and the sustainability of food systems, in their capacity to ensure good quality and adequate food for this generation and future generations. This report adopts a systemic perspective to analyze the impacts of FLW on the sustainability of food systems and on food security and nutrition. It reviews the wide range of causes of FLW, identifying broad categories and levels of causes. The report is deliberately oriented towards action. [...]

Improving Diets and Nutrition: Food-based Approaches

The "International Symposium on Food and Nutrition Security: Food-based Approaches for Improving Diets and Raising Levels of Nutrition" was organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to better document the contribution that food and agriculture can make to improving nutrition. These proceedings are a useful resource for decision and policy makers, programme planners and implementers, and health workers, all of which work to combat hunger and malnutrition. The proceedings of the Symposium aim at collecting and better documenting evidence that demonstrates the impact, effectiveness and sustainability of food-based approaches for improving diets and raising levels of nutrition.

Nutrition and Resilience. Strengthening the links between Resilience and Nutrition in Food and Agriculture

This paper is an attempt to bring together the thinking on nutrition and resilience from a food and agriculture perspective and to discuss the linkages between the two agendas from a conceptual, strategic and operational perspective. The paper argues that good nutrition is both an essential “input” for resilience and an outcome of resilience. It highlights key areas of convergence between the two concepts as well as opportunities to enhance the nutritional impact of resilience building programming in the context of the food and agriculture sector. Building on the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s resilience strategy, this paper then [...]

La situation mondiale de l'alimentation et de l'agriculture 2014 : Ouvrir l'agriculture familiale à l'innovation

Plus de 500 millions d’exploitations agricoles familiales se répartissent la plus grande partie des terres agricoles mondiales et produisent l’essentiel des denrées alimentaires. Nous avons besoin des exploitations agricoles familiales pour parvenir à la sécurité alimentaire partout dans le monde, préserver et protéger l’environnement naturel et mettre fin à la pauvreté, à la dénutrition et à la malnutrition. Ces objectifs ne seront atteints qu’à condition que les exploitations familiales deviennent beaucoup plus productives et fonctionnent davantage dans l’optique d’un développement durable; autrement dit, il faut qu’elles s’ouvrent à l’innovation, dans le cadre d’un système qui tienne compte de leur diversité [...]

Principes pour un investissement responsable dans l'agriculture et les systèmes alimentaries

Pour éliminer la faim, il est indispensable d'accroître sensiblement l'investissement agricole et, plus encore, d'améliorer la qualité de l'investissement afin qu'il bénéficie à ceux qui en ont le plus besoin.  Les Principes du CSA pour un investissement responsable dans l’agriculture et les systèmes alimentaires partent de l'idée qu'avant de définir la mesure dans laquelle l'investissement responsable dans l'agriculture et les systèmes alimentaires peut contribuer à la sécurité alimentaire et à la nutrition, il convient de reconnaître et de respecter les droits de l'homme. Cet ensemble de 10 principes encadre tout investissement agricole, quels qu'en soient le type et le volume, y [...]
