    Monitoring food security in countries with conflict situations: A joint FAO/WFP update for the United Nations Security Council (July 2016)
    Food Security Updates: July 2016

    This document is a collection of briefs on countries in which food security has been affected by conflict and other crises. Here is an overview of some key numbers: people in conflict affected states are up to three times more likely to be undernourished than those who are living in more stable developing countries. The most recent projections suggest that approximately half of the global poor now live in states characterized by conflict and violence. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have a strong interest, and a potentially important role to play, in supporting transitions towards peace.

    Vector control and the elimination of gambiense human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) - Joint FAO/WHO Virtual Expert Meeting, 5-6 October 2021
    PAAT Meeting Report Series, No. 1
    2022
    Also available in:

    Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) is a vector-borne parasitic disease transmitted by tsetse flies in sub-Saharan Africa. The gambiense form of the disease (gHAT) is endemic in western and central Africa and is responsible for more than 95 percent of the HAT cases reported annually. In the road map for neglected tropical diseases 2021–2030, WHO targeted gHAT for elimination of transmission by 2030. FAO supports this goal within the framework of the Programme against African Trypanosomosis (PAAT). In the framework of the WHO network for HAT elimination, FAO and WHO convened a virtual expert meeting to review vector control in the context of gHAT elimination. The experts included health officials from endemic countries and representatives from research and academic institutions, international organizations and the private sector. Seven endemic countries provided reports on recent and ongoing vector control interventions against gHAT at national level (i.e. Angola, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea and Uganda). The country reports were followed by thematic sessions on various aspects of vector control: tools, costs, community-based approaches, monitoring and reporting. Tsetse control was also discussed in the broader framework of One Health, and in particular in relation to the control of animal trypanosomosis. This report presents a summary of the findings and lessons learned.

    From reference levels to results reporting: REDD+ under the UNFCCC 2017

    For well over a decade, developing countries have been encouraged to undertake activities in their forestry sectors that are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also working to conserve, enhance and sustainably manage forest carbon stocks. These activities are known collectively as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+), which was established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). More recently, these actions were con firmed by the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change, which entered into force in 2016, as a core element of a new global climate change regime. Under this regime, governments have agreed on policy approaches and positive incentives for activities that reduce GHG emissions and enhance carbon sinks in the forest sector in developing countries. Countries have been supported in their REDD+ efforts by organizations including United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), which has spe cialized in assisting the development of measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) capabilities – crucial to the REDD+ process. This flyer provides an update of developments related to the MRV of REDD+ activities, as well as updating activities related to countries’ submissions of Forest Reference (Emission) Levels (FRELs/FRLs). This report will also summarize experiences with the technical assessment process as of early 2017 and offer an overview of initial REDD+ results reporting and tec hnical analyses of those reports.
