    At its Sixth Session in June 2018, the Global Soil Partnership (GSP) Plenary Assembly (PA), upon request of its Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS), voted to organize a Symposium on soil erosion “considering that this is the main threat affecting global soils”. The Symposium aims to incentivize bottom-up global soil erosion assessments under the umbrella of the Food and Agriculture’s (FAO) GSP. The Global Symposium on Soil Erosion (GSER19) is organized around three key themes: 1. Soil erosion assessment tools and data: creation, consolidation and harmonization; 2. Best erosion management practices of the last 20 years and policy support to address human-induced erosion; 3. The economics of soil erosion Although the three themes will be treated separately during the Symposium, they are inter-related. Prior to the GSER19 and for each of the themes, working groups were set up with the objective of discussing the key topics to be tackled for each theme. The discussions held within each of the three working groups were then translated into working documents that are presented in this final document. The three theme working documents will eventually assist the GSP and its partners in planning upcoming actions to address soil erosion at the global, regional and local level. A revised version of this document will be included in the outcome c of the Symposium, which will be published after the event. The working groups were composed of experts, members of the GSP’s ITPS, and the Science-Policy Interface of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (SPI-UNCCD), who participated on a voluntary basis.

    Report of the Preparatory Meeting for the Global Forum of Food Safety Regulators 2001
    Also available in:

    The Meeting developed a consensus on the focus and purpose of such fora. These were defined as an exchange of information and experience acquired by countries on ways of dealing with food safety issues, methods of risk management and communication, information and rapid alert systems. The agendas of such fora should be clearly separated from activities of Codex Alimentarius; they should complement or support, but not duplicate, those of other meetings. It was further agreed that the global food safety fora would not make decisions, but exchange information, describe alternative options, share and learn from national experiences and seek mutual understanding on issues and response strategies with regard to food safety problems of common concern. While focussing on national approaches to food safety issues the fora would seek to identify a global perspective in coping with certain risks, including crisis management and prevention policies and measures,.

    This publication contains the proceedings of the FAO Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation, which took place at FAO headquarters in Rome on 25-27 September 2023. The objective of the conference was to provide a neutral forum for FAO Members, producers, scientists, development agencies, policymakers, civil society and the private sector to engage in dialogue on innovations and pathways to efficiently produce more nutritious, safe and accessible animal sourced foods with a reduced environmental footprint and to contribute to vibrant local and diversified livestock systems that are more resilient to shocks and disruptions. The proceedings provide a record of the main highlights of the conference, including the opening plenary session where there were addresses by the FAO Director-General, two keynote speakers and nine participants in two high-level ministerial panels; four plenary sessions dedicated respectively to the themes of better production, better nutrition, better environment and better life, with summaries of presentations and facilitated discussions; and a final plenary session including statements from 12 participants in two high-level ministerial segments. The proceedings also include one chapter each dedicated to the Global Youth Dialogue on Sustainable Livestock Transformation; the reports of five side events and an FAO launch event which took place during the conference; and a summary of 12 success stories of sustainable livestock transformation that were showcased in an exhibition held during the conference.
