Understanding Climate-Smart Agriculture
 
02:47
www.fao.org/climatechange/micca/ This video explains the climate-smart agriculture approach including its objectives and why it is needed. Climate change will hit farmers, herders and fishers the hardest. The Climate-smart agriculture approach promotes the development of the technical, policy and investment conditions to achieve sustainable agricultural development for food security under a changing climate. It seeks to: increase sustainably agricultural productivity and incomes, help adapt and build resilience to climate change impacts and wherever possible, reduces and/or removes greenhouse gases. To make climate-smart agriculture a reality we need to: expand the evidence base; improve policies; empower local institutions; and combine new financing options. Let’s make sure our agriculture is productive and sustainable for generations to come. © FAO: http://www.fao.org

A Journey Around the World with Pulses
 
04:05
The book 'Pulses, nutritious seeds for a sustainable future' takes readers on a journey around the world, showing how edible seeds – known as pulses – fit in each region’s history and culture. Published by FAO as part of the International Year of Pulses 2016 (IYP 2016), the book features 30 recipes from 10 international top chefs along with a wealth of information about all varieties of dried beans, their health benefits and cultural significance around the world. It follows the chefs as they go to market to buy pulses and then back to their restaurants or homes, where each chef then prepares easy dishes and gives their best-kept secrets. In addition to the recipes, the book includes instructions on how pulses can be easily grown at home and provides an overview of how pulses benefit nutrition, health, biodiversity and food security as well as information on the major world producers, importers and exporters of dried beans. Script: 2016 International Year of Pulses. Nutritious Seeds for a Sustainable Future. She Zengtai, China: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses! It will be a great year!” Abraham García, Spain: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses, is there anything better for you, tastier and cheaper?” Ron Pickarski, United States of America: “The people's universal, sustainable and perfectly balanced protein for human nutrition” Pulses are the fearless ally to fight malnutrition. As such they are the superfood of the future to achieve zero hunger. How can something so small be so good for us? The FAO has highlighted five benefits of pulses NUTRITION They are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are rich in proteins and minerals. They are rich in iron as well as fibre. They are low in fats. They are an answer to the two-edged challenge of chronic hunger and poor eating habits: 793 million are chronically undernourished; 500 million people are obese. HEALTH Pulses not only boost the immune system, they also have a positive effect on the nervous system. They are ideal for diabetics and celiacs and they help to regulate weight. CLIMATE CHANGE Pulses need less water than many other crops. Pulses improve the absorption of carbon in soils. Pulses biologically fix nitrogen. Planting pulses helps to reduce greenhouse gases. BIODIVERSITY In crop rotation, they improve the harvest yields of other crops, and their residues can be used as forage: zero waste! FOOD SECURITY Around 90% of pulses are grown by family farmers, the majority of whom rely on subsistence agriculture. Pulses are highly resistant, and inexpensive. A journey around the world with pulses. Ten chefs in ten countries bought pulses at their local market and created recipes for the International Year of Pulses book. Didem Senol, Turkey: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses! I cannot imagine cooking without pulses!” Muñoz Zurita, Mexico: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses! Beans are a traditional food in Mexico” Veronica Jackson, Tanzania: “When I cook them, I like to add some coconut!” Helena Rizzo, Brazil: “My advice is to explore the huge diversity of pulses as much as possible” Zubaida Tariq, Pakistan: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses!” Sanjeev Kapoor, India: “To make them more tasty, cook your pulses with a bit of turmeric and ghee” Moha Fedal, Morocco: “Welcome to the International Year of Pulses!” Don’t forget: pulses are fundamental to end hunger in the world, ensure healthy eating habits, and protect the environment. For these reasons and more, pulses are a superfood of the future to achieve Zero Hunger. The official book of the International Year of Pulses. Everything to do with pulses, their benefits and how to produce them, with original recipes by cooks around the globe.

International Day of Forests 2019: Forests and Education
 
01:07
Learning to understand our forests and providing children with a foundation to better understand their importance is a critical step to safeguarding natural resources for future generations. Forests help keep air, soil, water and people healthy and play a vital role in addressing some of the biggest challenges we face today, such as climate change, eliminating hunger and keeping urban and rural communities sustainable. With more than half the world’s population living in urban areas, a number expected to rise to 70 percent by 2050, people are increasingly disconnected from nature and lack the awareness and understanding of forests and their benefits and the need to manage them sustainably, making it essential to bring forests into their lives at an early age.

10 Achievements of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
 
07:27
FAO works to eliminate hunger, malnutrition and poverty in a sustainable manner. Since its establishment in 1945, FAO has brought the world closer to this goal by supporting several important achievements CODEX ALIMENTARIUS. ESTABLISHED IN 1963. The most important international body for FOOD STANDARDS, Consumer PROTECTION, and fair practices in FOOD TRADE. The Codex Alimentarius ENSURES, SAFE food, GOOD food, For EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE. The Codex Alimentarius Commission WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1963 by FAO and the World Health Organization. ERADICATION OF RIVER BLINDNESS IN WEST AFRICA. 1974 - 2002. ‘RIVER ONCHOCERCIASIS’ in West Africa transmitted by INFECTED BLACK FLIES blinded tens of thousands of people. In 1974 FAO, WHO, UNDP and the WORLD BANK launched a programme in 11 COUNTRIES. Eco-friendly insecticides combined with a large-scale treatment programme controlled the DISEASE and prevented the infection of 40 MILLION PEOPLE at risk. RIVER BLINDNESS was eradicated in 2002. THE TREATY ON PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES FOR FOOD AND AGRICULTURE. ADOPTED IN 2001. WHO OWNS A SEED? Who regulates conservation, sustainable use, access, and distribution of the benefits from plant genetic resources? The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources was adopted by 135 countries after years of diplomatic efforts promoted by FAO. The Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for FOOD AND AGRICULTURE WAS adopted in 2001. COMMITTEE ON WORLD FOOD SECURITY (CFS). ESTABLISHED IN 1974. The CFS is the MAIN FORUM FOR DIALOGUE ON FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION. 1974: The CFS is born. 2009: The CFS is reformed as a MULTISECTOR PLATFORM open to CIVIL SOCIETY and to the PRIVATE SECTOR. The CFS reports to the UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY and holds its annual plenary session at FAO. THE FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN. 1990 – 2014. In 25 years, the LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN region halved the number of hungry. 1990: 14,7% - 2014: 5,5%. This was achieved by strengthening political commitment to ensure AVAILABILITY of food, facilitate ACCESS to food, and promote NUTRITIONAL wellbeing. Fighting Hunger for PRESENT and FUTURE Generations. ERADICATION OF RINDERPEST. 1994 – 2011. RINDERPEST was a deadly and highly contagious viral disease with a mortality rate in animals of 100%. Rinderpest KILLED MILLIONS of cows, buffalos and their wild relatives. Rinderpest caused FAMINE among humans. In 1994 FAO and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) started the Global Rinderpest Eradication Programme. By 2011 FAO and OIE declared Rinderpest ERADICATED. THE RIGHT TO FOOD. ADOPTED IN 2004. The RIGHT TO FOOD is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 2004 the FAO Council adopted the Right to Food Guidelines. The guidelines HAVE TRANSFORMED PRINCIPLES INTO PRACTICE. The Right to Food is now part of the CONSTITUTIONS AND LEGAL FRAMEWORKS of over 30 countries. THE RIGHT TO FOOD GUIDELINES were adopted in 2004. AGRICULTURAL MARKET INFORMATION SYSTEM (AMIS). ESTABLISHED IN 2011. In 2007 - 2008 the sudden rise in food prices threatened food security. Tools to REDUCE FOOD PRICE VOLATILITY were urgently needed. AMIS was born in 2011 as an inter-agency platform to promote TRANSPARENCY in global food markets and coordinate POLITICAL RESPONSES. The Agricultural Market Information System System WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2011. VOLUNTARY GUIDELINES ON THE RESPONSIBLE GOVERNANCE OF TENURE OF LAND, FISHERIES AND FORESTS. ADOPTED IN 2012. To IMPROVE ACCESS to natural resources and benefit all in 2009 FAO initiated a GLOBAL CONSULTATION with multiple stakeholders. In 2011-12, the CFS endorsed the VOLUNTARY GUIDELINES on the tenure of land, fisheries and forests. The guidelines are the GLOBAL REFERENCE for governance of tenure of NATURAL RESOURCES. The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of LAND, FISHERIES and FORESTS were adopted in 2012. The Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. ADOPTED IN 1995 The Port State Measures Agreement. ADOPTED IN 2016. To protect NATURAL RESOURCES, avoid OVERFISHING, and combat ILLEGAL, UNREPORTED and UNREGULATED fishing, FAO promotes the CODE OF CONDUCT FOR RESPONSIBLE FISHERIES, adopted at the FAO CONFERENCE in 1995, and the PORT STATE MEASURES AGREEMENT that came into force in June 2016. The Code of Conduct forResponsible Fisheries WAS adopted in 1995. The Port State Measures Agreement came into force in June 2016.

Soil Pollution, a hidden reality
 
02:20
While we can see many of the changes we have made to our planet, some of our impacts are virtually invisible, and soil pollution is a good example. Soil is a much more complex growing habitat that remains productive only when it is cared for and nurtured. Combating and addressing soil pollution means assessing and minimizing the risks for food security, human health and the environment. Global activities need to be launched and implemented in order to reduce soil pollution and remediate polluted sites.

http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health today. It poses a major challenge to health, food security, & development. It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. All around the world, bacteria are becoming resistant to the antibiotics used to treat the infections they cause, resulting in longer illnesses & more deaths. At the same time, not enough new antibiotics are being developed to replace older & increasingly ineffective ones. Without urgent action, the world is headed for a ‘post-antibiotic era’ in which common infections & minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill, & the benefits of advanced medical treatments such as chemotherapy & major surgery will be lost.

http://www.fao.org/policy-support Pollution, illegal fishing, over-exploitation and climate change have become major threats to aquatic eco-systems. We need to change how the planet's marine and freshwater resources are managed. Lahsen Ababouch, Director of the FAO Fisheries and Agriculture Department together with Rebecca Metzner, Senior Fishery Officer explain how the Blue Growth Initiative contributes to balancing food security, economic growth, social development and the sustainable use of aquatic living resources. They describe the FAO policy work, including key policy messages, to integrating all three. This video forms part of a series of policy and governance videos being produced by FAO in 2016.

The role of agriculture in preventing the development of antimicrobial resistance
 
03:36
Public health and sustainable food production are facing a serious global threat today: the increasing spread of Antimicrobial Resistance. What is Antimicrobial Resistance? Antimicrobial Resistance refers to bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that become resistant to anti-microbial drugs. How do microbes become resistant? Antimicrobials, such as antibiotics, are used to kill or stop microbes from growing in humans, animals and plants. Antimicrobial Resistance can occur naturally over time, but overuse and misuse of antimicrobial drugs in humans and in agriculture speed up the development of Antimicrobial Resistance. As a result, the medicines we use to treat common infections are becoming less and less powerful or even useless. How does Antimicrobial Resistance spread? Microbes that are resistant to anti-microbials can be found in people, animals, food, water and the environment. Antimicrobial resistant microbes can spread through the food chain and the environment; between people and animals; or from person to person. The impact of Antimicrobial Resistance. Antimicrobial Resistance affects: 1. Human health Because drugs become less effective leading to more severe illnesses, with an estimated 700.000 human deaths each year. 2. Food supply and agriculture Because production losses lead to food insecurity, and because misuse results in unsafe or contaminated foods. 3. and Antimicrobial Resistance affects the environment, with soil and water polluted with drug residues and resistant microbes. What is needed? A global threat requires a global response bringing together all people and sectors to reduce the use of antimicrobials in humans and animals and to use them selectively, prudently and responsibly. A global threat requires a "One Health" approach with all sectors working together: 1. Veterinarians Prescribing medicines responsibly and only after a proper diagnosis; and advising whenever possible alternatives to antimicrobials, like vaccines. 2. Farmers Through common and good farming practices; and a responsible use of quality antimicrobials, only on professional advice. 3. Food producers Producing, handling and marketing food under hygienic conditions, in a proper and environmentally friendly way. From Global commitment to Local action. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) supports National Action Plans involving all sectors to prevent the development of antimicrobial resistance by: 1. Raising awareness 2. Promoting best practices in food and agriculture, including aquaculture 3. Developing capacity for surveillance and monitoring 4. and always making sure that rules for the safe use are respected. If we use antimicrobials in agriculture responsibly we support sustainable food security and save lives. http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org

Simple solutions to hunger -- an Afghan village transformed
 
04:16
Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, is a fertile agricultural area with abundant land and water. Yet until recently small-scale farmers were making so little money, they were considering selling their land and giving up farming. Families were hungry and couldn't afford school tuition. An FAO project has shown how investment in extension services, seeds, fertilizer and other technologies can turn the situation around and be a simple solution to hunger. © FAO: http://www.fao.org
Joyce – A Kenyan Fish Farming Entrepreneur

The predictability of social protection instruments enables households to better manage risks and engage in more profitable livelihoods. https://transfer.cpc.unc.edu/ Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org
Raising awareness about African swine fever in Ukraine
 
02:34
http://www.fao.org/ag/againfo/programmes/en/empres/disease_asf.asp African Swine Fever (ASF) is a viral disease is not harmful for people - but it does impact rural economies, their sources of income and culinary practices and, of course, a very large numbers of pigs. In the past few years, Ukraine has faced over USD 30 million in losses and potential losses due to an uncontrolled spread of ASF in Ukraine could increase significantly in the future. FAO, jointly with the EBRD, with the generous support from the Government of Japan, has been acting in concert with the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine since 2014 to mitigate risks and help prevent further destruction caused by the ASF epidemic.

http://www.fao.org/economic/social-protection/en/ The video highlights the key impacts of social cash transfers on households, children and local economy in sub-Saharan Africa. Evidence from across the region shows that social protection has helped reduce poverty, boosted local economies, increased family income, production and food security. Social protection, through cash transfers, can and does work in Africa. Research and impact evaluations of government-run programmes have been carried out by the UNICEF (http://www.unicef.org/esaro/), FAO’s From Protection to Production (PtoP) (http://www.fao.org/economic/ptop) and the Transfer Project (http://www.cpc.unc.edu/projects/transfer). © FAO: http://www.fao.org
Join us for a Zero Hunger future
 
04:39
OUR ACTIONS ARE OUR FUTURE After a period of decline, world hunger is on the rise again. Today, over 820 million people are suffering chronic undernourishment, according to the latest FAO report. Conflict, extreme weather events linked to climate change, economic slowdown and rapidly increasing overweight and obesity levels are reversing progress made in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. Now is the time to get back on track. The world can achieve Zero Hunger if we join forces across nations, continents, sectors and professions, and act on evidence. www.fao.org/wfd Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org
Empowering forest communities in The Gambia
