    World Agriculture: Towards 2015/2030. Summary Report 2002
    Also available in:

    This report is a shorter version of World agriculture: towards 2015/2030, FAO's latest assessment of the long-term outlook for the world's food supplies, nutrition and agriculture. It summarizes the projections, distills the messages and presents them for the generalist. The projections cover supply and demand for the major agricultural commodities and sectors, including fisheries and forestry. This analysis forms the basis for a more detailed examination of other factors, such as nutrition a nd undernourishment, and the implications for international trade. The report also investigates the implications of future supply and demand for the natural resource base and discusses how technology can contribute to a more sustainable development. One of the report's main findings is that, if no corrective action is taken, the target set by the World Food Summit in 1996 - that of halving the number of undernourished people by 2015 - is not going to be met. Nothing short of a massive effort at improving the overall development performance will free the developing world of its most pressing food insecurity problems. The progress made towards this target depends on many factors, not least of which are political will and the mobilization of additional resources. Past experience underlines the crucial role of agriculture in the development process, particularly where the majority of the population relies on this sector for employment and income.

    The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2006
    Eradicating world hunger – taking stock ten years after the World Food Summit
    2006
    Ten years ago, world leaders met in Rome for the World Food Summit (WFS) to discuss ways to end hunger. They pledged their commitment to an ongoing effort to eradicate hunger in all countries and set themselves the immediate target of halving the number of undernourished people by 2015. To this purpose, they approved the World Food Summit Plan of Action. In October 2006, FAO’s Committee on World Food Security is undertaking an assessment of the implementation of the Plan of Action and a mid-term review of progress towards achieving the target. The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2006 reviews progress and setbacks in hunger reduction since 1990–92, the established baseline period. The first section of the report, Undernourishment around the world, reviews trends in hunger at the global, regional and subregional levels. It also presents FAO’s most recent projections of undernourishment in 2015. The second section, Undernourishment in the regions, reviews the food security situation in each of the major developing regions and the transition countries. The third section, Towards the Summit commitments, summarizes lessons from past experience in hunger reduction and presents FAO’s current thinking on how to accelerate progress towards meeting the WFS target. Two tables (pp. 32–38) provide detailed information on levels of undernourishment in developing and transition countries and other indicators relevant to food security. The report also includes maps (page 31) illustratin g the global food security situation and progress in hunger reduction.

    Agricultura mundial: hacia los años 2015/2030. Informe resumido 2002
    Also available in:

    El presente informe es una versión reducida de “World agriculture: towards 2015/2030”, la última evaluación realizada por la FAO de las perspectivas a largo plazo del abastecimiento de alimentos, la nutrición y la agricultura. En él se resumen las proyecciones, se resaltan los mensajes y se presentan para el público en general. Las proyecciones abarcan la oferta y la demanda de los principales productos agropecuarios y los sectores agrícola, forestal y pesquero. Este análisis constituye la base de un examen más detallado de otros factores, como la nutrición y la desnutrición, y las consecuencias para el comercio mundial. El informe estudia también las repercusiones en la oferta y la demanda futuras sobre la base de los recursos naturales y analiza la manera en que la tecnología puede contribuir a fomentar un desarrollo más sostenible. Una de las conclusiones principales del informe es que, si no se adoptan las medidas correctoras necesarias, no será posible alcanzar el objetivo estable cido en la Cumbre Mundial sobre la Alimentación de 1996 de reducir a la mitad la cifra de personas desnutridas en 2015. Sólo con un enorme esfuerzo por mejorar el desarrollo global será posible liberar a los países en desarrollo de sus problemas más acuciantes de inseguridad alimentaria. Los progresos en el avance hacia este objetivo dependen de muchos factores, sobre todo de la voluntad política y la movilización de recursos adicionales. La experiencia viene a subrayar el papel crucial de la ag ricultura en el proceso de desarrollo, especialmente cuando la mayoría de la población depende de este sector en lo que se refiere a empleo e ingresos.
