    FAO Geospatial - Support for sustainable resource management (Revised version) 2019

    No results found.

    What is the FAO Geospatial Unit and what does it do? The aim of this flyer is to describe essentially the activity of the team, how - with more than 30 years of experience in the development and use of geospatial methods and tools - it collects and disseminates data, how precious is its support to the development of agricultural plans for the governments of the increasing countries and its contribution to implement appropriate solutions, to create sustainable food systems (FAO SO2). This is in line with the priorities of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and it is clear however that no meaningful and effective action can be taken without sound and timely data to inform and guide decision makers. This informative flyer will be our visit card at meetings, events, international forums, etc. for creating awareness about the projects of monitoring and mapping that we can offer, based on the latest and most efficient spatial technologies.

    Knowledge of the status and trends of capture fisheries, including socio-economic aspects, is a key factor for sound policy development, better decision-making and responsible fisheries management. Capacity building in data collection and fisheries statistics has always been a high priority for FAO, regional fisheries bodies and national fisheries authorities. The most recent effort by FAO was the development of this toolkit for routine small scale fisheries data collection. The toolkit comprise s a generic database (OPEN ARTFISH) and a mobile phone application for routine small scale fisheries data collection. The primary objective of the toolkit is to facilitate the implementation of cost effective and sustainable routine data collection, storage and analyses of data, using appropriate statistical procedures.

    Guidelines for collection and compilation of fishery statistics. 1975
    Also available in:

    The need to collect data arises when attempts are made to manage the economic and social activities of a society. For example data on population size and distribution are used in planning the building, of houses, schools, roads and hospitals. The raw data which appear on the source document (e.g., a census form filled in by the head of a household) are collected and processed to provide statistics of, among other things, the number of children of primary school age in each district of each town. Instead of the wealth of individual detail which exists on the source document about age, family size, occupation, income and activities we may, for the purposes of the types of planning listed above, devise a simplified description or model of the population. In our model there may be only four age classes pre-school, school age, child bearing age and post-child bearing and we may use this as a basis for estimating the number of school places or hospital beds needed in five years time, given c ertain information about numbers of children born per family per year and rate of hospitalization for different age groups. This model describes the age structure of the population in a simple way which helps us to make predictions about the changes likely to take place in the population.
