    The 2002 United Nations World Summit on Sustainable Development called for species whose catches had been drastically depleted to be restored to health within 2015. An approach is proposed here to a preliminary classification, based solely on information included in the FAO capture database. Three criteria were used to filter catch data: the trend in recent years, the long-term trend, and the extent of decline in catches over the long term. These were applied sequentially to the data series for species items by fishing area recorded in the FAO capture database. About ten percent of the species items examined matched the selecting criteria. This is the same proportion of stocks classified as “depleted” by FAO based on assessment data although there are differences in the species identified. Reasons for these discrepancies are discussed. The species groups with the highest percentages of species matching the three criteria were Gadiformes, molluscs (excluding cephalopods) and miscellan eous coastal and demersal fishes. Pelagic fishes (including Clupeoids) and crustaceans showed low percentages of depleted resources. Species considered depleted by this procedure are listed by FAO fishing area.

    The Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) is a joint FAO/OIE initiative which specifically aims at the control and prevention of Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs) and Emerging Infectious Diseases, providing a regional coordinating framework for a range of infectious disease control activities occurring at global and regional levels.

    Private Sector Assessment for the Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and other Natural Resources 2010
    Also available in:

    FAO and its development partners are working together with countries to prepare Voluntary Guidelines that will provide practical guidance to states, the private sector, civil society, academia, donors and development specialists on the responsible governance of tenure. By setting out principles and internationally accepted standards for responsible practice and associated technical guidance, the Voluntary Guidelines will provide a framework and point of reference that stakeholders can use when developing their own policies and actions. For the private sector this includes principles that can be used in formulating policies for trade, investment, employment and supply chain management when developing land and natural resources in partnership with governments and local communities so that projects are mutually beneficial and reduce risks when operating in unfamiliar areas where there is a lack of clarity. They can be used in corporate social responsibility and environmental, social and governance policies to enable the private sector to address more effectively issues concerning land and natural resources. The consultations on the proposed Voluntary Guidelines are an important part of the process of exploring what they should contain and building the necessary consensus for their eventual implementation. They bring together representative, multidisciplinary groups to assess regional and sector priorities and issues that should be considered when the Voluntary Guidelines are drafted. The private sector consultation was held in London and organized, hosted and co-sponsored by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. It was attended by 76 people from 22 countries, who brought a rich and extensive range of expertise derived from their experience in the private sector, the professions, public sector, civil society, research and academia in a wide range of countries and UN agencies.
