MONDE : Guerre, sécheresses : la guerre du blé aura-t-elle lieu ? | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

L’embargo indien sur les exportations de blé a propulsé le prix de la denrée à un niveau record. L’annonce fait l’effet d’une bombe sur le marché des céréales, déjà sous tension en raison de la guerre en Ukraine. Dans ce contexte, le moindre choc peut avoir un effet dévastateur, selon les spécialistes.

The longest river in ITALY is drying up. What does this mean for those who rely on it for food?

The longest river in ITALY is drying up. What does this mean for those who rely on it for food? | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Last month, residents of Boretto in northern Italy discovered that the wide stretch of the Po River, running just to the north of their small town, had transformed into a beach.
The pale golden sand extended for around 10 metres towards the centre of the river and inhabitants took advantage of the newly formed terrain to take a stroll and walk their dogs.
In other areas, the water level dropped so low that the remains of a tank from WWII were revealed and the ruined walls of a medieval town emerged.

Sea urchin fishing banned in TURKEY over depletion concerns | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

The government imposed a ban on fishing for sea urchins in the Marmara Sea this week due to concerns about the species becoming endangered amid overfishing.
The General Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry on Monday announced the ban on hunting the urchins, which are among the few organisms that help keep invasive algae in check, serving as the "cleaner" of seas. The ban will officially start next Monday.

ALGERIE : Application du programme de généralisation de «l’électricité agricole» | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Plus de deux ans depuis son lancement, le programme de généralisation de l’électrification agricole peine à avancer dans certaines wilayas du pays. Si dans des wilayas du grand sud et des hauts plateaux, le programme mis en œuvre dès 2020 sur instruction du chef de l’Etat, enregistre des avancées notables, dans les wilayas du nord, en revanche, des blocages dus à une sorte de malentendus au sein de l’administration retardent le raccordement des exploitations agricoles au réseau électrique.

MIDDLE EAST: From rivalry to partnership: Managing climate risks through regional collaboration | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

The rise of climate action in the Middle East over the last few months has brought climate change into the limelight like never before. Yet it has also raised more questions than it has answered.
Growing climate ambitions together with the commitment by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to host the next two United Nations climate summits, COP27 and COP28, have signaled a greater interest in climate change in the fossil fuel-rich region.

'Green WATER' is set to diminish for most croplands worldwide | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Freshwater scarcity is a fact of life for people across much of the planet with agricultural production severely affected as irrigation at croplands already accounts for 70% of water use globally.
Much worse is to come, however, scientists warn. By the middle of the century, say the authors of a new study, water scarcity in agriculture will likely increase in a staggering 80% of the world’s croplands.

Commercial tuna fisheries represent a significant part of Africa’s fisheries economy, with six species—yellowfin, skipjack, bigeye, albacore, and Atlantic and southern bluefin—among the most valuable fishes on the planet.
