The food systems and territories of Indigenous Peoples sustain much of the world’s biodiversity, cultivated and wild, through agroecological practices rooted in Indigenous cosmovision and cultural and spiritual values. These food systems have a critical role to play in sustainability transformations but are widely threatened and have received limited research attention.
The Decision on Land Tenure (Decision 26/ COP.14) by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) recognises the importance of responsible land governance for sustainable land management and restoration, as well as for combatting desertification, land degradation and drought.
Limiting global warming to the 2°C target that countries have committed to in the 2015 Paris Agreement, and reaching the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, will require large-scale expansion of climate-resilient approaches in agriculture and food systems.
June 4, 2021 -- An increasing number of countries are facing growing levels of acute food insecurity, reversing years of development gains. Even before COVID-19 reduced incomes and disrupted supply chains, chronic and acute hunger were on the rise due to various factors including conflict, socio-economic conditions, natural hazards, climate change and pests.
As part of the efforts to find sustainable solutions to complex land tenure issues, multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) create an inclusive forum where actors can discuss problems and propose solutions to improve governance of tenure and provide better access to natural resources.
Dans le cadre de la recherche de réponses durables aux questions foncières complexes, les plateformes multi-acteurs offrent un lieu de débat ouvert qui permet aux acteurs d’aborder les problèmes et de proposer des solutions pour améliorer la gouvernance foncière et l’accès aux ressources naturelles.
This study set out to estimate the effects of large-scale agricultural investments (LSAIs) on household food security in one community each in Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique. An endogenous switching regression model was adopted to control for a possible selection bias due to unobserved factors.
La pandémie de Covid-19 est sans aucun doute l’événement majeur de santé publique qui a marqué les êtres humains, les sociétés et les esprits dans le monde entier et particulièrement l’Afrique.
