    Public food procurement for sustainable food systems and healthy diets - Volume 1 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Sustainable Public Food Procurement (PFP) represents a key game changer for food systems transformation. It can influence both food consumption and food production patterns. It can deliver multiple social, economic, and environmental benefits towards sustainable food systems for healthy diets. This publication aims to contribute to the improved understanding, dissemination, and use of PFP as a development tool in particular in the case of school meals programmes. In Volume 1, researchers, policymakers, and development partners can find evidence on how PFP can be used as a development tool and deliver multiple benefits for multiple beneficiaries. It argues that PFP can provide a market for local and smallholder farmers, promote the conservation and sustainable use of agrobiodiversity, and improve the nutrition and health of children and communities. Volume 2 of this publication, available at https://doi.org/10.4060/cb7969en presents further analysis of the instruments, enablers and barriers for PFP implementation. It also provides case studies with local, regional and national experiences from Africa, Asia, Europe and North and South America.

    Research and Extension – TAP-AIS project webinar: Joint rapid appraisal on strengthening agricultural innovation systems in Africa, Asia and Latin America by regional research and extension organizations 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The webinar is organized in the framework of the TAP-AIS project (Developing capacities in agricultural innovation systems: scaling up the Tropical Agriculture Platform Framework) implemented by FAO’s Research and Extension Unit, and funded by the European Union as a component of the EU DeSIRA initiative. The project aims to strengthen agricultural innovation systems by promoting the capacity development framework of the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), a multi-stakeholder facilitation mechanism on capacity development for agricultural innovation systems. As part of the project, in 2020, Regional Agricultural Research and Extension Organizations (RREO) in Africa, Asia and Latin America jointly carried out rapid appraisals to scope the innovation environment and identify and document initiatives aimed at strengthening Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS). The focus of the joint rapid appraisals (JRA) was on functional capacity development with a view to exploring ways in which RREO can support the development of these capacities using TAP approaches and tools. The three regional studies were consolidated in the Synthesis report, which will be launched during this event. The main objectives of the webinar are to raise awareness and promote joint actions by RREO on strengthening capacity to innovate through integration of TAP Common Framework for capacity development. Specifically the webinar will:
    • present key findings from the Synthesis report on capacity development for innovation
    • raise awareness and advocate for joint actions by research and extension organizations
    • identify entry points for integration of Common Framework of capacity development within the programmes and projects of Regional Research and Extension Organizations.
    This webinar is open to the partners contributed to the report and other interested parties. The webinar will be in English with Spanish interpretation.
