Tests find trees tolerant to olive tree killer pathogen - BBC News

Tests find trees tolerant to olive tree killer pathogen - BBC News | FTN press review | Scoop.it
Laboratory tests show some varieties of olive trees appear to be resistant to an invasive pathogen that poses a serious risk to Europe's olive industry.

Science & Environment #BBC News | Tests find trees tolerant to olive tree killer pathogen By Mark Kinver Environment reporter, BBC News | #Ciheam #[Alumni #FTN #IPM #Olive #XylellaFastidiosa |

Tolerance to olive tree killer Tests suggest some varieties of olive trees appear to be resistant to Xylella fastidiosa, an invasive pathogen posing a serious risk to Europe's olive industry. The study, carried out by Italian researchers and funded by the European Food Safety Agency (#EFSA), began in 2014 and consisted of two main types of experiments: artificial inoculation with needle and inoculation via insect vectors collected from the field. The tests were carried out on a variety of species, including a range of olive, grape, stone-fruit (almond and cherry), and oak varieties. "The key results are that, 12-14 months after artificial inoculation on different olive varieties, the team found that young plants typically grown in the region displayed symptoms of the dieback," said Giuseppe Stancanelli, head of the EFSA's Plant and Animal Health Unit. But he added: "What has also been shown is that some varieties have shown some tolerance. They grow in infected orchards but do not show strong symptoms, as seen in more susceptible varieties. They are still infected by the inoculation but this infection is much slower so it takes longer for the infection to spread, and the concentration of the bacterium in the plant is much lower." These results are important in terms of providing information for tree breeders. However, it is too early to say whether or not the olive yields from the varieties that have displayed tolerance to the infection are nonetheless reduced or adversely affected. Read more.

Ciheam-Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:


ALGER- Le Ministère de l’Agriculture, du Développement Rural et de la Pêche et le Centre International de Hautes Etudes Agronomiques Méditerranéennes (CIHEAM) ont signé mardi à Alger un mémorandum d’entente visant à renforcer leur coopération dans le domaine de la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle, le développement durable et inclusif et la formation.

Selon un communiqué du ministère, cet accord touche quatre domaines prioritaires de coopération à savoir l’accompagnement des politiques institutionnelles, le développement agricole et agro-alimentaire, le développement rural et local, ainsi que le développement halieutique et aquacole.

Ce mémorandum d’entente a été signé par le Secrétaire général du ministère, Kamel Chadi,  et le Secrétaire général du CIHEAM, Cosimo Lacirignola, en présence notamment du ministre de l’Agriculture, du Développement Rural et de la Pêche, Sid Ahmed Ferroukhi.

"La force du partenariat entre l’Algérie et le CIHEAM et la réussite des projets qui ont été menés s’expliquent notamment par une vision commune du développement et par une convergence des objectifs, à savoir, comme l’illustre l’Agenda stratégique du CIHEAM 2025: lutter contre toutes les formes de gaspillage dont celle de la connaissance, renforcer l’agriculture durable et la sécurité alimentaire, investir dans les jeunes et les territoires et enfin prévenir les risques et gérer les tensions", souligne M. Ferroukhi.

A rappeler que l’Algérie a adhéré en 1986 au CIHEAM, une organisation intergouvernementale basée à Paris et créée en 1962 à l’initiative conjointe de l’Organisation de Coopération et de Développement Economique (OCDE) et du Conseil de l’Europe.

Ces dix dernières années, plus de 1.600 Algériens ont suivi des formations dans l’un des 4 Instituts du CIHEAM situés en Italie, en Grèce, en Espagne et en France.

International conference on Water, Energy and Climate Change (WECC-2016) | Marrakech- #Morocco June 1-4, 2016

 

The last 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris witnessed a historical event. All nations have adopted, for the first time, a binding agreement to counter climate change consequences. 

 

This decision compels all countries to commit more seriously in order to achieve the target goal. The city of Marrakech will be hosting the COP22 in November. It will be the opportunity for all nations to present first evaluation of the measures taken against global warming and greenhouse gas emissions. 

 

Morocco is really concerned by the consequences of climate change as it is located in an awfully vulnerable area. Hence, Morocco has adopted a directive law in its Environment and Sustainable Development National Chart to reduce its GHG emissions by 32% in the horizon of 2030

.

On the occasion of the COP22, the National Center for Studies and Research on Water and Energy (CNEREE) of Cadi Ayyad University is organizing an international conference on Water, Energy and Climate Change (WECC-2016). This conference will be held in partnerships with national and international research institutions and development stakeholders. 

 

The purpose of the WECC-2016 conference is to bring together researchers, engineers, practitioners, industrials and decision making from all over the world to share, debate and disseminate innovative solutions and best practices in the fields of water and waste management, agriculture and food security, forestry, renewable energy and energy efficiency, adaptation and mitigation to meet climate related challenges.

A l’occasion de la conférence sur la transition énergétique en méditerranée organisée par MEDENER ce mercredi 25 mai à Alger. L’ADEME, avec l’appui de ses partenaires méditerranéens, lance un concours destiné à faire émerger des solutions concrètes d’adaptation aux impacts du changement climatique touchant les territoires méditerranéens. Ce concours s’adresse aux acteurs publics (en particulier les collectivités territoriales et les Universités) et aux ONG, associées à des acteurs publics locaux, pour la mise en œuvre d’actions d’adaptation dans l’aire bioclimatique méditerranéenne (régions bordant la Méditerranée, auxquelles s’ajoutent le Portugal et la Jordanie). Les projets présentés doivent porter sur une des thématiques suivantes : Aménagements, infrastructures et bâtiments. Ecosystèmes et ressources naturelles. Méthodes de conception et de mise en œuvre de politiques publiques. Les principaux critères d’analyse des actions seront la pertinence et l’exemplarité de l’action, l’efficacité des moyens déployés pour la mettre en place, la reproductibilité à l’échelle méditerranéenne et la cohérence de l’action d’adaptation avec les autres enjeux socioéconomiques et environnementaux du territoire dans lequel elle s’inscrit. Les trois lauréats (un par catégorie) seront invités à participer à la COP22 du 7 au 18 novembre 2016 à Marrakech et leurs actions seront valorisées dans une publication dédiée et lors de colloques internationaux. L’Association Méditerranéenne des Agences nationales pour l’Efficacité Energétique et les Energies Renouvelables (MEDENER), l’Union pour la Méditerranée (UpM), la Commission Méditerranée de Cités et Gouvernements Locaux Unis (CGLU Med), le Plan Bleu ainsi que le réseau d’experts méditerranéens du changement climatique (MedECC) sont partenaires de ce concours.

Le Comité de Pilotage chargé de l’organisation de la COP22 a révélé aujourd’hui l’identité visuelle de la 22ème Conférence des Parties à la Convention-Cadre des Nations Unies sur les Changements Climatiques dont les travaux se tiendront du 7 au 18 novembre prochain à Marrakech. Selon Salaheddine Mezouar, Président de la COP22, « L’identité visuelle choisie repose sur le capital civilisationnel et historique du Royaume, particulièrement celui de la ville emblématique de Marrakech». Il ajoute « qu’elle a été conçue de sorte à ce que tous les Marocains puissent se l’approprier». Le célèbre pavillon de la Menara a été choisi pour être au cœur d’un rayonnement de Zellige. L’authentique mosaïque décorative marocaine est revisitée par un traité dynamique que l’on peut associer à une forme solaire. La Ménara, symbole de Marrakech, est le vestige d’un système hydraulique vieux de plus de 700 ans, témoignage du savoir-faire ancestral du Maroc, au service de la gestion d’une ressource rare et précieuse : l’eau.

World Water Council - #ClimateIsWater looks to COP22 | International Conference on Water and Climate to be held in Rabat, Morocco, 11–12 July 2016 | FTN press review | Scoop.it
#ClimateIsWater looks to COP22

The #ClimateIsWater initiative clearly brought water to the climate community at COP21 in Paris. Water was discussed at greater depth and in greater detail than at any previous UN climate conference. Now, #ClimateIsWater, coordinated by the WWC, is inspiring the groundwork for COP22.

Gaining momentum from successful collaboration in the lead-up to COP21, cooperation between France, host of COP21, and Morocco, which will host COP22 is bourgeoning. As part of the push to place water at the heart of COP22, France, Morocco and the WWC are co-hosting the International Conference on Water and Climate. To be held in Rabat, Morocco, 11–12 July, we’re sure the conference will raise political awareness of the importance of water in tackling and adapting to climate change.

A ministerial roundtable will be organized to give African states an opportunity to share their perspectives on water and climate issues specific to the continent.

19th Organic World Congress - Call for Papers Now Open

The 19th Organic World Congress of IFOAM - Organics International, taking place from 09 - 11 November 2017 in India, now opens its Call for Papers.

Every three years sector stakeholders come together at the Organic World Congress (OWC), the world’s largest and most significant organic gathering, to discuss and deliberate the issues of the day.

The 19th OWC is structured in four conference tracks: Main Track, Farmers Track, Scientific Track, and Marketing Track.
 
The Main Track, composed of two parallel sessions, is a series of public discussions and debates by leaders from the organic movement on how we can best promote and implement the organic agenda.  The overarching theme is “Global Adoption of Organic Principles for Truly Sustainable Agriculture' and the audience is invited to contribute to strategic discussions with the panel experts.
 
The Farmers’ Track provides a forum to highlight farmers’ work in organic especially with regards to innovations used on their farms. Presentations will be on the topics of Seeds & Biodiversity, Soil Fertility & Health, Soil Life & Plant Health, and Ecological Farming Practices & Systems.

The Scientific Track is a platform where research results are presented and discussed in 20 sessions of 1.5 hours each. Papers must link to scientific disciplines such as soil, plant, animal, or economics. All papers should give at least an outline of how the research presented contributes to Organic 3.0 - The next phase of organic development.
 
The Marketing Track discusses innovative ideas for shortening value chains, for systems that build trust between actors, for promising marketing methods and for organic and fair trade alliance building. Papers are called for that deal with emerging trends in quality assurance, e.g. PGS (Participatory Guarantee Systems), CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), fair trade and other alternative and integrative systems.
 
More information on the OWC and and the Call for Papers.
 
Please note, the deadline for submissions is 30 September 2016.

Ciheam-Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
Interview : Cosimo Lacirignola, Secrétaire général du CIHEAM
14/02/2016
Pourquoi la thématique de la pêche artisanale durable en Méditerranée et en Mer Noire est-elle importante ?

Avant tout je rappelle que parler de sécurité alimentaire, c’est parler des produits de la terre mais aussi de ceux de la mer. On l’oublie souvent. La pêche artisanale, qui représente des dizaines de milliers d'emplois en Méditerranée, est au cœur des enjeux de la durabilité des ressources naturelles, de la production halieutique et de la croissance inclusive dans ses composantes sociales et territoriales.  
 
Depuis de nombreuses années le CIHEAM s’investit dans ces domaines et affirme qu’ils sont stratégiques pour le développement, la stabilité et la paix de la région. Soutenir et développer la pêche artisanale contribue à valoriser la « diète Méditerranéenne » qui a fait ses preuves en matière de production durable et responsable, et qui est également un modèle de consommation d’avenir dans la mesure où elle contribue à faciliter l’accès à une alimentation saine produite dans le respect des équilibres naturels. 
 
Nous avons beaucoup à apprendre des pêcheurs en matière de résilience car ils savent anticiper et s’adapter aux contraintes, notamment environnementales, qui sont particulièrement fortes dans la région. 
 
Notre rôle est de pérenniser leurs activités et de les accompagner en matière de transmission des savoirs et des connaissances auprès d'une jeunesse rurale vulnérable qui bénéficie le moins des bienfaits de la mondialisation et de la modernité. Ces jeunes sont en quête de projets professionnels qui leur permettent de s'épanouir, de vivre dignement et qui valoriseront au mieux leur territoire. C’est là tout l’enjeu du développement inclusif et responsable en Méditerranée que nous défendons. 
 
Le CIHEAM en fait sa priorité, notamment en travaillant sur la formation et le renforcement des capacités des populations vulnérables tels que les pêcheurs traditionnels. Nous sommes conscients que cet objectif ne sera atteint qu’en adoptant une démarche de dialogue et de collaboration avec les diverses parties prenantes de la pêche en Méditerranée.
