Discover the English version of the last issue of the series ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ : ‘Complex systems - From biology to landscapes’, n° 23 (80 pages, February 2019)

This issue of ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ thus showcases the scientific actors conducting research activities related to complex systems throughout the Occitanie region—for the first time. The scientific community includes 44 research teams (research units, service units, hosting and project teams, and observatories). Several federative research bodies oversee the scientific activities of the teams: an institute, six laboratories of excellence (LabEx), an equipment of excellence project (EquipEx) and a Convergence Institute. Finally, several French national and European research infrastructures and data and computation centres essential for managing complex systems are also based in Occitanie.

This Dossier will provide readers with an overview of these regional scientific stakeholders through specific examples of activities they develop in relation to complex systems in three main thematic areas: Data collection and management; Understanding and analysing complex systems; and Different applications of the complex systems approach.

Scientific coordination : Nicolas Arnaud (CNRS), Bertrand Jouve (CNRS), Jean-Pierre Müller (CIRAD)

The Dossiers d’Agropolis International collection is a flagship vehicle for presenting and promoting the expertise of Agropolis International members on major scientific issues. Each Dossier is devoted to a specific theme. The research units and training courses concerned are showcased, alongside the research and associated results. Contributions of civil society, the economic sphere and local authorities in the target areas are also highlighted.

Just published: 'Land Use and Food Security in 2050: a Narrow Road'

How can we best use land to ensure food and nutritional security for all? It will ba a hard, long and narrow road, and above all, it means a change in direction. This is demonstrated in a book on the Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, Land Use and Food Security in 2050: a Narrow Road. The book gives details of the four-year study by CIRAD and INRA , backed by a number of experts from all over the world.

After an initial study on global food security in 2050 (Agrimonde), CIRAD and INRA switched their attention to a new foresight exercise, centring on land use in the light of the challenge posed by ensuring food security in 2050. The new study, entitled Agrimonde-Terra, pinpointed levers likely to modify existing land use patterns with a view to boosting food and nutritional security.

Just published : ‘Strengthening health decision-making at the territorial level: operational support for spatial multi-criteria evaluation’ (June 2018 – Issue 46 of ‘Perspective’, CIRAD policy brief)

It is now possible to map diseases in regions for which epidemiological data are scarce. Spatial multi-criteria evaluation is a rigorous method that is quick to implement, and was developed by CIRAD and its partners.
Animal health and veterinary public health policymakers are still relatively unfamiliar with this method, but it is suited to regions with little access to reliable epidemiological data, such as low-income countries in the South or disease-free areas.
Animal diseases and zoonoses - infectious diseases that can be transmitted between animals and humans - are a global socio-economic and public health problem: ensuring the surveillance and control of these diseases means identifying high risk areas in both North and South.
This series of 4-page summaries published by CIRAD which presents novel ideas or policies on development issues of strategic importance for countries in the South: food security, land tenure, climate change, energy security, forest management, standards, etc.
Authors : Annelise Tran and François Roger.

Just published : ‘Public policies to support agroecology in Latin America and the Caribbean’ (May 2018 – Issue 45 of ‘Perspective’, CIRAD policy brief)

Agroecology in Latin America emerged in response to the social, economic, environmental and climate crises observed in conventional agriculture. It is driven by social movements and is gradually being taken into account in public policies.
These policies involve a range of instruments that are often embedded in programmes that also support organic agriculture and sustainable agriculture, types that unlike agroecology do not question the basis of the conventional agri-food system. This issue of Perspective analyses these policies and their influence on the development of agroecology in eight countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, and Nicaragua. These policies remain fragile, while support for large-scale conventional agriculture is still predominant, and implementing instruments in favour of agroecology thus depends on the power relations in each country. The challenge is therefore to convince more broadly farmers, consumers and policymakers about the importance of issues such as public health and food security.
This series of 4-page summaries published by CIRAD which presents novel ideas or policies on development issues of strategic importance for countries in the South: food security, land tenure, climate change, energy security, forest management, standards, etc.

To be published at the end of 2018: 25th issue of "The Dossiers d’Agropolis International series" is dedicated to the "One health" issue

The 25th issue of "The Dossiers d’Agropolis International series", to be published at the end of 2018, will present an overview of research & development projects and training activities carried out in the One Health sphere by scientific organisations in the Occitanie region.

Global approaches to health – defined by the "One Health","EcoHealth" or "Planetary Health" paradigms – postulate that the epidemiological dynamics of diseases and the impact of the various drivers that determine the health of animal, plant and human populations should be studied in inter-connection and in link with their ecological, socio-economic and political contexts.

The scientific community of the Occitanie region in the South-West of France works within this integrative framework, focusing on regional – in connection with the Mediterranean area – national and international issues, including tropical contexts and diseases. Research projects are conducted in close cooperation with a number of partners across the world.

The Dossiers d’Agropolis International series is a deliverable of Agropolis International that is produced within the scope of its mission to promote expertise of the scientific community. Each Dossier is devoted to a broad scientific theme, and includes a clear overview that is a ready reference for all laboratories and teams associated with Agropolis International that are conducting research on the target theme.

Publication of a new "Dossier thématique du CSFD" on "Ecological engineering for sustainable agriculture in arid and semiarid West African regions"

The 11th issue of Les dossiers thématiques du CSFD (Comité Scientifique Français de la Désertification/French Scientific Committee on Desertification) looks at potential contributions of ecological engineering to the management of agrosylvopastoral systems in sub-Saharan drylands areas.

It helps to describe and define agroecological practices. Based on the authors’ and contributors’ experience, West Africa is focused on to illustrate the ecological intensification to agricultural production in the broad sense. Examples from non-African tropical dryland areas worldwide are also discussed to illustrate the potential of agroecological engineering to sustainable land management and therefore to the fight against desertification.

Dominique Masse (Agronomy-Ecology, IRD), Jean-Luc Chotte (Soil Ecology - Microbial Diversity, IRD) and Eric Scopel (Ecological engineering, Cirad), coordinated this Dossier.

CSFD is hosted and managed by Agropolis International.

Just published: "Agrimonde-Terra: the narrow roads to global food security", Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, conducted by scientists from CIRAD and INRA with the support of global expert

How will agricultural land occupation change in the coming decades? As a result of which factors? How will the tensions between food security and climate change mitigation pan out? The Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, conducted by scientists from CIRAD and INRA with the support of global experts, set out to answer these questions via five land use and food security scenarios. The results of the Agrimonde-Terra foresight study, presented on 24 June in Paris, highlight the main levers for action, in particular the need for global land use governance that takes account not just of the agricultural and food sectors, but also other economic sectors. This should involve all the various stakeholders, and result in more diversified diets, new international trade regulations, more integrated crop and animal production systems and guaranteed access to land for a wide range of agricultural structures.
