    Stories of change: Building competence and confidence in agricultural innovation 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This book tells stories. Stories from very many people. Stories of change – triggered by this complex project, Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems (CDAIS). The stories relate to changes. Personal change. Organizational change. Changes in attitudes. Changes in practice. They tell of improvements in livelihoods. But more importantly, they tell of positive and appreciated changes in individual and organizational approaches – in how people see things and do things. They give some examples of the rich learning experiences stimulated by the CDAIS project, but of course don’t show them all. Also, each is only a ‘snapshot’ – having been written and published on www. cdais.net at different times over the past 12 months, though some have been updated, others show where people were at that point in time. But they all show how competence – but perhaps more importantly – confidence – amongst those involved has changed. Though the main aim of the CDAIS project was to test how and in what ways the approach used worked (or didn’t work), how it could be improved, and in what ways the results could help donors when deciding on the design of future projects. But this is not the purpose of this book. Other publications will explain that in detail. This book just tells stories, with images and testimonies from the field. The ‘end users’, ‘beneficiaries’ or whatever other impersonal terms some in ‘development’ want to call them – the people – here, they air their views. In context. Honestly. Frankly. And, as it seems, positively. But this would not have been possible without the great efforts of very many people. First and foremost are the 40 contributors we have supported – almost all ‘national innovation facilitators’ trained by CDAIS to implement innovation in agricultural systems, to collect these stories. And we are so very proud of their achievements, and the help provided by many others within Agrinatura, national partner organisations, and others in the partnerships concerned. And even after working in rural development for 30 years, some of these experiences have moved us deeply. We are seeing real change. Of that there is no doubt. “Other projects bring us machines, but CDAIS brings us knowledge and a new way of working together” was a common thread to many of the conversations. “And thanks to that it has helped us so much. Thank you.” I visited six of the eight pilot countries during the preparation of this work, so can vouch personally, for many of the testimonies. And as for seeing the faces of those as they spoke the words that are included in the book, the photographs can’t do them justice. I saw the impacts. And now you can seen them too. Enjoy!

    Les pouvoir des forêts 2012
    Also available in:

    Ce numéro d’Unasylva arrive dans le sillage de la Conférence des Nations Unies sur le développement durable, Rio+20, qui, entre autres choses, a produit un document intitulé L’avenir que nous voulons. Dans ce dernier,les dirigeants du monde entier ont réaffirmé leur engagement à l’égard du développement durable, et déclaré que «la grande diversité des produits et des services fournis par les forêts peut permettre de relever un bon nombre des défis les plus urgents en matière de développe ment durable». Les forestiers devraient se réjouir de ces mots car ils indiquent que les forêts commencent à obtenir la reconnaissance qu’elles méritent. Dans ce numéro d’Unasylva, nous nous penchons sur le pouvoir qu’ont les forêts d’entraîner un développement durable. Dans leur article offrant une vue d’ensemble, Rao Matta et Laura Schweitzer Meins exposent les nombreuses contributions que les forêts sont susceptibles d’apporter, comme l’approvisionnement durable en aliments, en énergie, en bois et en services écosystémiques. Ils appellent à replacer les forêts vers une position plus centrale dans les initiatives visant au développement durable, et déclarent qu’un encadrement fort au niveau mondial est nécessaire si l’on veut parvenir à une compréhension élargie des avantages socioéconomiques de l’investissement dans les forêts.

    El poder de los bosques 2012
    Also available in:

    La publicación de este número de Unasylva tiene lugar a raíz de la celebración de la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Desarrollo Sostenible Río+20, que, entre otros frutos, publicó el documento intitulado El futuro que queremos. En ese documento, los dirigentes de todo el mundo reafirmaron su compromiso en favor del desarrollo sostenible, y declararon que «la amplia gama de productos y servicios que proporcionan los bosques crean oportunidades para hacer frente a muchos de los pro blemas más acuciantes del desarrollo sostenible». Estas palabras deberían complacer a los expertos forestales, porque indican que los bosques están comenzando a recibir la atención que merecen. En este número de Unasylva examinamos el poder que encierran los bosques de provocar el desarrollo sostenible. En su artículo de información general, Rao Matta y Laura Schweitzer Meins exponen las principales contribuciones que pueden derivar de los bosques, tales como el suministro sostenible de alim entos, energía, madera y servicios ecosistémicos. Los autores hacen un llamamiento para resituar —en un lugar central— los bosques en las iniciativas relacionadas con el desarrollo sostenible, e indican que se necesita un liderazgo mundial fuerte para inculcar un entendimiento amplio de los beneficios socioeconómicos que resultan de las inversiones en los bosques.
