    As the discipline of pollination ecology moves from describing the extent of a pollinator crisis, to identifying what can be done about it, there is a need to share and highlight very practical measures that will support sustainable crop biotic pollination services. Identifying these practices will require a mix of farmer and natural historian knowledge and scientific research. In this publication, we will outline the practices that have been so far identified, and what experiences may contribute to sharing the effectiveness of these measures under different circumstances.

    As a contribution to the knowledge base on the capacity of rice ecosystems to produce multiple benefits, the present review was undertaken in the context of FAO’s Regional Rice Initiative in Asia in 2013. FAO coordinated a process with regional and national experts in Asia to identify emerging holistic systems in rice production, review key integral practices, and assess their documented impacts on both yields and provisioning of ecosystem services. In the majority of cases, from the literature review undertaken it is evident that yields of rice production systems can benefit from the systems that are managed to generate other ecosystem services. The analysis in this document showcases an example of how FAO’s Strategic Framework can be implemented, particularly through its Strategic Objective 2 – to increase and improve provision of goods and services from agriculture, forestry and fisheries in a sustainable manner.
