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.

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.
