IGC Webinar on Sustainability in the Grains Value chain - 15 December 2022, 2pm - 4pm (UK Time) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

IGC’s 2022 conference included two sessions on climate change and sustainability in the grains value chain. The panellists agreed that sustainability should be tackled using a holistic approach due to the diverse situations, including pedoclimatic factors and the wide range of operators.
In 2022, we can identify several long-term approaches on sustainability from the supply side as well as in the trading sector. Some of the actors refer to “sustainable farming”, or sustainable agriculture”, farming practices considering ecological cycles. In simpler terms, sustainable farming is farming ecologically by promoting methods and practices that are economically viable, environmentally sound and protect public health.
Regenerative agriculture also refers to sustainable farming practices in order to improve the conservation and rehabilitation. It focuses on soil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle enhancing ecosystem service, supporting bio sequestration and increasing resilience to climate change.
The panellists also discussed the need to keep ...

Global cereal supply outlook improved since December but still forecast to tighten in 2022/23 (FAO Cereal Supply and Demand Brief)

Global cereal supply outlook improved since December but still forecast to tighten in 2022/23 (FAO Cereal Supply and Demand Brief) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

FAO’s latest forecast for world cereal production in 2022 has been raised by 8.3 million tonnes (0.3 percent) this month to 2 765 million tonnes, albeit still 1.7 percent lower year-on-year. The increase is predominantly related to wheat, reflecting upward revisions made for Australia and Russia, which raised the forecast for the global wheat output to 794 million tonnes and reinforced the expectations for a record-high outturn in 2022. For coarse grains, global production is pegged at 1 459 million tonnes in 2022, moderately down compared to the preceding forecast in December and now 3.3 percent below the level in 2021. The most recent cut reflects lower maize production estimates for the EU, the USA and Russia, which more than offset an upward revision for China. The forecast for th ...

Selon Réseau Action Climat, la grande distribution a une responsabilité majeure dans la transition ALIMENTAIRE mais elle ne jouerait pas vraiment le jeu.

Selon Réseau Action Climat, la grande distribution a une responsabilité majeure dans la transition ALIMENTAIRE mais elle ne jouerait pas vraiment le jeu. | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it
La grande distribution concentre l’écrasante majorité de nos achats alimentaires. Elle est aussi le premier annonceur publicitaire en France. Son pouvoir d’influence sur les questions de transition alimentaire est donc considérable. Pourtant, Réseau Action Climat, au travers d’une étude intitulée « L’heure des comptes pour les supermarchés », pointe son manque d’actions majeures sur le sujet. Selon le collectif d’associations, il faut en effet arrêter la focalisation excessive sur la responsabilité des consommateurs et sur les engagements volontaires des entreprises, et plutôt engager la grande distribution, tout comme les pouvoirs publics.

In summary, Morocco has taken important positive steps with respect to drought risk management over the past several decades, but there still appears to be room for improvement, as indicated both in the reviewed assessments and the findings of the present study, which has focused specifically in the agricultural (and livestock) sector with gender lenses. The ongoing technical assistance by different actors and by United Nations agencies will undoubtedly help to set the stage for further improvements in this regard.

Ultimately, the effectiveness of the actions proposed will depend on how well they are implemented by the Moroccan Government and other national stakeholders. Because of ...
