    Building Resilience and Strengthening Food and Nutrition Security for Smallholder Farmers in the Syrian Arab Republic - GCP/SYR/023/EC 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The impact of the crisis in the Syrian Arab Republic has placed even greater pressure on the country’s already fragile agriculture sector. The combination of droughts, a hasty reform and liberalization process, as well as global food price hikes, have resulted in an increase in the number of inhabitants living in a state of food insecurity, in particular in the northeastern part of the country, and led to an exodus of impoverished and resource-poor farmers and pastoralists to cities and urban areas, a factor now understood to have contributed to the ongoing crisis. The increased demand resulting from the ongoing crisis has negatively affected the country’s overall agricultural production and productivity, food security and socio-economic stability. There is therefore an urgent need to strengthen sustainable management of natural resources (water, land and soil) to ensure sustainable food production for the wellbeing of the Syrian people. In this context, the objective of the FAO Smallholder Support Programme(SSP) was for local-level intervention to empower, strengthen the capacities and build the resilience of smallholder farmers, helping them to become self-reliant within the country’s agriculture sector.

    Book (stand-alone)
    Climate Change and Food Systems: Global assessments and implications for food security and trade 2015
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This book collects the findings of a group of scientists and economists who have taken stock of climate change impacts on food and agriculture at global and regional levels over the past two decades. The evidence presented describes how global warming will impact where and how food is produced and discusses the significant consequences for food security, health and nutrition, water scarcity and climate adaptation. The book also highlights the implications for global food trade. The evidence pres ented in the book is presented in a way that is widely accessible to policy decision makers and practitioners and makes a distinct contribution towards a greater science-policy interchange. Put together, the different analyses in the book paint a comprehensive perspective linking climate change to food, nutrition, water, and trade along with suggested policy responses.
