The Implications of Agricultural Trade and Market Developments for Food Security - Tallard &al (2016) - OECD

Reducing hunger and undernourishment is a global priority and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have the ambitious target of eradicating hunger entirely by 2030… This paper provides projections on the availability of calories at the national level, for the number of persons undernourished, and for the proportion of undernourishment (PoU) that are consistent with the market projections… It also considers the impact on undernourishment of four alternative scenarios: faster income growth relative to the baseline in developing countries; stronger growth in agricultural productivity; a combination of a faster income growth with a stronger productivity growth; and finally a more equitable access to available food supplies. 


Under the baseline, the global PoU is projected to fall from 11% to 8% over ten years, with Latin America as a whole dipping under the 5% threshold at which the FAO considers hunger to be effectively eradicated. The PoU falls from 12% to 8% in Asia and the Pacific and from 23% to 19% in Sub-Saharan Africa… Higher income growth or more productive agriculture removes more people from the ranks of the undernourished, but in most cases, more equitable access to food leads to the biggest reductions. The analysis confirms that it is not lack of available food that is the fundamental problem, but rather effective access to that food. Trade plays an increasing role in ensuring national food availability for many countries… 


The biggest impacts on undernourishment come through a scenario which improved access to available calories through a more equal distribution of incomes… across national populations. Already, the world produces 50% more calories than needed to meet everyone’s minimum calorie requirement. A 10% reduction in the coefficient of variation in 2024 lowers the overall PoU by 2.1 percentage points… A combination of income growth, agricultural productivity gains, and reduced income inequality will keep most Asian countries on track to achieve the SDG of eliminating hunger. However, the PoU for Sub-Saharan Africa as a whole remains stubbornly high under all scenarios, and by 2024 the region will account for more than one third of the global total of undernourished. 


For the poorest African countries, much deeper transformations will be needed that raise the incomes of the poorest households and with it their access to food… Trade will play an important role in moving supplies from surplus to deficit countries. In most countries, the majority of additional consumption will be sourced from domestic markets. Overall there is a modest increase in the share of consumption imported for crop products, but larger increases are observed in some countries, including Bangladesh, China, Ethiopia, India, Mozambique and Viet Nam. The importance of trade to national food availability will be reinforced if overall income growth is the dominant source of increased calorie availability, and reduced if the main driver is domestic agricultural productivity growth.

Environmental Possibilism Vs. Environmental Determinism

Environmental Possibilism Vs. Environmental Determinism | Alimentos y Tecnología | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 13, 2016 8:15 AM

This article outlines differences between environmental determinism and environmental possibilism.  Authors such as Robert Kaplan (Revenge of Geography---see a review here) and Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs, and Steel) have been accused of being too environmentally deterministic.  Read Jared Diamond's retort to his critics here. 

 

Questions to Ponder: In what ways does the environment shape human culture(s)?  Why is Jared Diamond critical of skeptics who use the phrase ‘environmental determinism?’Why might some of Kaplan’s ideas as well as the ideas of classical geopolitics be considered ‘environmental determinism?' Can the role of physical geography be overstated in culture, economics or politics? Give three examples when it might be inappropriate.

Effect of magnesium, probiotic, and vitamin food supplementation in healthy subjects with psychological stress and evaluation of a persistent effect after discontinuing intake.

Effect of magnesium, probiotic, and vitamin food supplementation in healthy subjects with psychological stress and evaluation of a persistent effect after discontinuing intake. | Alimentos y Tecnología | Scoop.it
Abstract
BACKGROUND:
To describe the changes in subjects' psychological stress intensity under the effect of dietary supplements of magnesium, probiotics, and vitamins after one month of intake.
METHODS:
Observational cohort study of subject complaining of psychological stress defined by a Perceived Stress Scale (PSS 10) score of more than 21.
RESULTS:
The study covered 242 healthy volunteers, 38.6 ± 13.6 years old, among whom 79.8% were women. Under the effect of the supplementation of magnesium, probiotics, and vitamins, the psychological stress of the subjects decreased significantly from 34.1 ± 4.5 to 26.2 ± 6.1 (p<0.0001), which corresponds to an average reduction of 22.7 ± 16.0%. Fatigue decreased even more significantly from 16.8 ± 6.4 to 8.7 ± 6.2 (p<0.0001), which corresponds to an average reduction of 45.0% ± 38.1%. Analysis showed that the psychological stress level was strictly similar one month after the treatment was discontinued and therefore clearly demonstrated that the psychological benefit was maintained over time.
CONCLUSIONS:
Stress and fatigue are significantly reduced by the intake of a food supplement with probiotics, magnesium, vitamins, and minerals and this effect is fully maintained one month after discontinuing the food supplement intake.

Las operaciones de limpieza y desinfección de equipos e instalaciones en la industria de alimentación son necesarias para mantener un adecuado nivel de higiene y seguridad alimentaria de los alimentos procesados, pero tienen un elevado impacto ambiental (consumo de agua, energía y productos de limpieza, aguas residuales, emisiones de CO2).
El ecodiseño higiénico permite reducir el impacto ambiental que suponen las operaciones de limpieza de los equipos alimentarios, puesto que están diseñados teniendo en cuenta criterios higiénicos como: la configuración, la geometría, el acabado superficial y los materiales, que permiten conseguir una mejor limpieza aplicando protocolos más sostenibles.
