Europe and Central Asia: Regional Overview of Food Insecurity 2016. The Food Insecurity Transition

Innovative Markets for Sustainable Agriculture : How innovations in market institutions encourage sustainable agriculture in developing countries

Between 2013 and 2015, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) undertook a survey of innovative approaches that enable markets to act as incentives in the transition towards sustainable agriculture in developing countries. Through a competitive selection process, 15 cases from around the world provide insights into how small-scale initiatives that use sustainable production practices are supported by market demand, and create innovations in the institutions that govern sustainable practices and market exchanges. These cases respond to both local and distant consumers’ concerns about the quality of the [...]

Addressing transboundary threats to the food chain. Food chain crisis- Emergency Prevention System (FCC-EMPRES)

Fighting hunger is not only about producing more food. It also means protecting food sources from diseases that can spread across borders. The Emergency Prevention System (EMPRES), is a surveillance and early warning system established with the objective of preventing food chain emergencies caused by transboundary threats. These may be animal or plant pests and diseases or food safety threats and can have a great impact on food security and food safety. Threats to the food chain affect not only  food security livelihoods and human health, but also national economies and global markets. This is why surveillance, early detection, early [...]

Programme mondial d'éradication de la peste des petits ruminants: contribuant à la sécurité alimentaire, à l'atténuation de la pauvreté et à la résilience. Phase quinquennale (2017–2021)

La Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) est une maladie hautement contagieuse causée par un Morbillivirus (famille des Paramyxoviridés) qui affecte les petits ruminants sauvages et domestiques. Elle est présente dans toute l’Afrique (sauf dans les pays situés le plus au sud), au Moyen-Orient, en Turquie, en Asie de l’Ouest et du Sud et en Chine. Signalée pour la première fois en 1942, la PPR se propage à un rythme alarmant depuis 15 ans, atteignant des régions antérieurement non infectées et mettant en péril des centaines de millions de petits ruminants. Dans les populations nouvellement infectées, la PPR a eu des [...]
