    Les Biotechnologies Agricoles: Une réponse aux besoins des plus démunis?
    2004
    La prsente dition de La situation mondiale de lalimentation et de lagriculture examine comment les biotechnologies agricoles pourront rpondre aux besoins des populations pauvres qui souffrent dinscurit alimentaire. L'agriculture reste confronte de graves difficults, en particulier celle de devoir nourrir deux milliards de personnes supplmentaires dici 2030 avec une base de ressources naturelles de plus en plus fragile. Le transfert, dans de bonnes conditions, des technologies existantes vers les communauts rurales pauvres et la cration de nouvelles biotechnologies sans danger peuvent grandement amliorer les possibilits de croissance durable de la productivit agricole l'heure actuelle et dans l'avenir. Cependant, les technologies ne peuvent elles seules rsoudre le problme de la pauvret et certains aspects des biotechnologies, en particulier leur incidence socioconomique et leurs consquences pour lenvironnement et la scurit sanitaire des aliments, mritent un examen attentif.

    This book represents the proceedings of the Global Conference on Green Development of Seed Industries which FAO organized in a virtual format on 4 and 5 November 2021. Coming 12 years after the previous World Seed Conference, FAO convened the conference to provide a neutral forum for its Members, partners, industry leaders, opinion leaders and other stakeholders to engage in focused dialogues on how best to make quality seeds and planting materials of preferred productive, nutritious and resilient crop varieties available to farmers, especially in food insecure parts of the world. The proceedings provide a record of the main highlights of the conference, including the opening and keynote address plenary session, a high-level ministerial segment and eight parallel sessions dedicated to the four conference themes of advanced technologies, conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture, crop varietal development and adoption, and seed systems. The fifth conference theme, policy and governance, was crosscutting. The conference was timely, informative, inclusive and inspiring and its successful convening creates an important momentum to facilitate the development and delivery of the solutions that enable farmers to have access to quality seeds and planting materials of improved crop varieties.

    The International Rice Commission (IRC), which works within the framework of FAO, was established on 4 January 1949 with the object of promoting national and international action in respect of production, conservation, distribution and consumption of rice. Matters relating to trade are outside the purview of the Commission. Membership of the Commission is open to all FAO Member Nations and Associate Members who accept the constitution of the IRC. The present membership of the Commission is 61 an d represents all the ricegrowing regions of the world. The Commission keeps under review the scientific, technical and economic problems relating to rice, encourages and coordinates research, organizes (where necessary) cooperative projects and reports to the member countries and the Director-General of FAO on appropriate action to be taken in furthering its objectives.
