    Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA)
    User guide
    2022
    Also available in:

    The Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) User guide provides in-depth information about the AGORA programme including its background, content, how to join, eligibility details, partners and impact. The user guide also includes step-by-step instructions on how to access and efficiently utilize the AGORA content portal for current users, along with answers to troubleshooting issues. This publication will help to increase AGORA’s target audience (interested and registered public institutions in low-income countries) ability to utilize the AGORA platform efficiently, providing them with free or low-cost access to thousands of major scientific journals, electronic books and other resources from the world’s leading academic publishers in the fields of agriculture, fisheries, food, nutrition, veterinary science and related biological, environmental and related social sciences. The goal of the guide, and how it contributes to FAO's Strategic Objectives and priorities is to improve the quality and effectiveness of access to agricultural research, education and training in low-income countries, and in turn, improve food security. Through the proper use of the AGORA programme and content platform, researchers, policy-makers, educators, students, technical workers, and extension specialists have digital access to high-quality, relevant and timely agricultural information.

    The third Meeting of the Global Record Informal Open-Ended Technical and Advisory Working Group (GRWG) was held in Rome, Italy, from 26 to 28 June 2017. The meeting was attended by experts from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Members, intergovernmental organisations (IGO) and International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGO), in view of identifying the next steps towards the development of the Global Record as a tool to fight illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Issues discussed included: the revision of the Terms of Reference (TOR) of the Working Group; the progress and state of affairs of the Global Record Programme; the IHS offer for inclusion of vessel data into the Global Record; user experiences, features, functionalities, rules and procedures, and participation to the first working version of the Global Record information system; outcomes of the first meeting of the Parties of the Agreement on Port State Measures (PSMA) in relation to the Global Record; and capacity development support. The GRWG agreed upon the revised TOR for the Working Group. The importance of publicly releasing the Global Record prior to the 33rd session of the Committee on Fisheries (COFI) to showcase the utility of the Global Record in the fight against IUU fishing and to encourage further participation, was highlighted. The GRWG recognized the value of IHSM’s revised offer in providing the five essential data fields, required for submitting a vessel into the Global Record information system, to support the implementation of Phase 1, whilst reiterating the responsibility of the State to provide the data. The Secretariat was requested to develop ways to facilitate the submission of data by States and that the source of data should be correctly marked in the information system. The need for a clear procedure for establishing National Focal Points (NFPs), was highlighted. The GRWG recommended that vessels records should be updated at least every 45 to 90 days. The GRWG underlined the importance that data included in the Global Record is of the highest quality and, in this regard, highlighted the need to establish procedures to avoid dissemination of conflicting data. The importance of timely advancements to the Global Record information system, particularly to support data verification and risk analysis for the PSMA and other instruments such as the United Nations Fish Stock Agreement (UNFSA), was underlined. The GRWG agreed upon the major areas that need consideration for capacity development action and highlighted that these should be planned and implemented in coordination with capacity development actions established under other initiatives to ensure coherence and support the development of synergies. The GRWG welcomed the announcement by Sweden of a contribution to the Global Record of 900 000 USD.

    Progress on level of water stress - Global baseline for SDG 6 Indicator 6.4.2 2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Access to safe water and sanitation and sound management of freshwater ecosystems are at the core of sustainable development. This is the aim of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), which includes approaches to water management such as environmental flow requirements, international cooperation, capacity building and stakeholder participation. Indicator 6.4.2 is useful for policymaking as it highlights those regions under high water stress, thereby informing countries on where they need to make efforts to improve water resource usage and promote water saving. Agriculture is by far the largest user of water worldwide, so reducing water use in this sector is particularly important. Agricultural water-savings can take many forms, including more sustainable and efficient food production through sustainable water management practices and technologies, and reducing freshwater withdrawals by growing a smaller amount of water-intensive crops in water-scarce regions. Reducing losses in municipal distribution networks, industrial and energy cooling processes is also important for reducing water stress, as well as using treated wastewater and desalinated water. This report describes the methodology for the assessment of SDG indicator 6.4.2 on the level of water stress, illustrating its development in the pilot phase of the GEMI project, and describing the technical steps needed to apply it. It passes to present the data collection process, and the role of the various national and international stakeholders in the monitoring process. Finally, the report shows the results of the first implementation of the indicator, defining its baseline and proposing key messages for the interpretation of the results.
