2011 Guide to implementation of phytosanitary standards in forestry

Publié on ven, 18 Nov 2011, 09:10

On November 11, 2011, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) published the Guide to implementation of phytosanitary standards in forestry. The guide represents a tool for countries to prevent forest-damaging pests from spreading to new areas.

Climate change, globalization, as well as the increased volume of wood products traded internationally, create new challenges for forests protection and pest management. The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) has a fundamental role in developing International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs) and in coordinating Regional and National Plant Protection Organizations. Mr. Yukio Yokoi, Secretary of the IPPC, explained that “all sectors in forestry ...

Save and grow: a policymaker's guide to the sustainable intensification of smallholder crop production

Publié on lun, 27 Jui 2011, 10:10

Save and Grow

In order to meet food production demand over the next 40 years, farmers in the developing world must double food production, a challenge made even more daunting by the combined effects of climate change and growing competition for land, water and energy. Sustainable crop production intensification (SCPI) represents a major shift from the homogeneous model of crop production to knowledge-intensive, often location-specific, farming systems.

Its application will require significant support to farmers in testing new practices and adapting technologies. Governments will need to strengthen national programmes for plant genetic resources conservation, plant breeding, and seed distribution in ...
