International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development free pdf The results of the project are contained in seven reports: a "Global Report", five regional "Sub-Global Assessments", and a "Synthesis Report". "The Global Report" gives the key findings of the Assessment, and the five "Sub-Global Assessments" address the most urgent regional challenges. The volumes present options for action - all supported by easy-to-understand graphs, charts, and tables. All of the reports have been extensively peer-reviewed by governments and experts and all have been approved by a panel of participating governments."The Sub-Global Assessments" all utilize a similar and consistent framework: examining and reporting on the impacts of AKST on hunger, poverty, nutrition, human health, and environmental/social sustainability. The five "Sub-Global Assessments" cover the following regions: Central and West Asia and North Africa (CWANA)- East and South Asia and the Pacific (ESAP)- Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)- North America and Europe (NAE)- and, Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)."The Synthesis Report" integrates key findings from the Global and Sub-Global Assessments, providing in-depth analyses of current conditions, challenges- and options for action. In addition, it addresses eight topics of critical importance: bioenergy- biotechnology- climate change- human health- natural resource management- trade and markets- traditional knowledge and community-based innovation- and women in agriculture.The IAASTD does not aim to predict the future. Instead, it creates 'plausible scenarios,' based on knowledge from past events and existing trends - including population growth, rural/urban food and poverty dynamics, loss of agricultural land, water availability, and climate change effects. It does not dictate what countries or stakeholders should do. Rather, it aims to inform planning processes with an eye toward what may happen as the world continues to develop over the next fifty years. Anyone who is working on agriculture, or environmental or development issues related to it, will find these volumes to be essential resources.

About Beverly D McIntyre

The IAASTD was initiated by the World Bank and the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, with support from the World Bank, the World Health Organization, and other sponsors. Its goal is to analyze the potential of agricultural knowledge, science, and technology (AKST) for reducing hunger and poverty, improving rural livelihoods, and working toward environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable development.
