Integrated Policy for Forests, Food Security and Sustainable Livelihoods: Lessons From the Republic of Korea

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Republic of Korea was one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. Deforestation had stripped the country of half its forest cover, contributing to severe erosion, repetitive flood and drought damage and a decrease in agricultural production which threatened national food security. Recognizing the importance of forests’ watershed and soil protection functions in restoring agricultural productivity, the government undertook an intensive forest rehabilitation effort. The implementation of two Ten-Year Forest Rehabilitation Plans in the 1970s and 1980s not only fully restored the country’s forest cover, but also delivered food security benefits [...]

Adopting a Territorial Approach to Food Security and Nutrition Policy

The calls for action are numerous: at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development in September 2012, governments reaffirmed the fundamental right of everyone to be free from hunger. The same year, the UN Secretary General launched the “Zero Hunger Challenge” campaign to end hunger globally. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, endorsed in September 2015, confirms the importance of achieving food security, and eradicating hunger is the second Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 2). Since 1990, much progress has been made in reducing hunger. Yet, challenges to food security and nutrition remain as pressing as ever. Around [...]

Renforcer la coherence entre l’agriculture et la protection sociale pour lutter contre la pauvreté et la faim en Afrique: outil de diagnostic

L’agriculture et la protection sociale sont intrinsèquement liées dans le contexte des moyens d’existence ruraux en Afrique. La subsistance des familles pauvres et en situation d’insécurité alimentaire dépend principalement de l’agriculture et, dans une moindre mesure, de revenus non agricoles et de transferts de fonds privés; ces familles sont donc la cible première des interventions de protection sociale. Lorsqu’elle s’inscrit dans le cadre plus vaste du développement rural, une cohérence accrue entre les interventions agricoles et de protection sociale contribue à améliorer le bien-être des petits exploitants familiaux pauvres en facilitant leur inclusion dans l’économie productive, en améliorant leurs capacités [...]

Renforcer la cohérence entre l’agriculture et la protection sociale pour lutter contre la faim et la pauvreté en Afrique: Cadre d’analyse et d’action

L’agriculture et la protection sociale sont intrinsèquement liées dans le contexte des moyens d’existence ruraux en Afrique. La subsistance des familles pauvres et en situation d’insécurité alimentaire dépend principalement de l’agriculture et, dans une moindre mesure, de revenus non agricoles et de transferts de fonds privés; ces familles sont donc la cible première des interventions de protection sociale (FAO, 2015a). Lorsqu’elle s’inscrit dans le cadre plus vaste du développement rural, une cohérence accrue entre les interventions agricoles et de protection sociale contribue à améliorer le bien-être des petits exploitants familiaux pauvres en facilitant leur inclusion dans l’économie productive, en améliorant [...]
