食物 & 营养安全

We are working to end food 和 nutrition insecurity 和 achieve Zero Hunger by supporting nutrition-sensitive agriculture practices, 将农民与当地市场联系起来, raising awareness 和 building leadership capacity for sustainable food systems.

 

For the past few years, hunger has been on the rise again. 的 absolute number of undernourished people, i.e. those facing chronic food deprivation, has increased to nearly 821 million in 2018, 2016年约有8.04亿人.  This figure represents almost 11% of the global population. 

Although it may appear to be a paradox, food insecurity (unreliable access to food) can also contribute to overweight 和 obesity. Nutritious, fresh foods  can often be expensive. In addition, many of the farmers who grow our food are themselves food insecure.

  • 的 food price crises at the start of the century had devastating impacts on the world’s poorest people, deepening their poverty 和 seriously undermining their right to food. Smallholder farmers 和 women (60% of the world’s chronically hungry people in 2009), 是不成比例的影响. 
  • “非洲 remains the continent with the highest prevalence of undernourishment (PoU), affecting almost 21 percent of the population (more than 256 million people).
  • World food security 和 nutrition is increasingly at risk due to the impact of the climate crisis on food production, 包括禽畜及渔业.

A shift must be made towards sustainable, nutrition-sensitive agriculture 和 food systems if we are to provide safe 和 high-quality food for all, environmental protection 和 social equity.

 

Organic agriculture can help achieve food 和 nutrition security by:

  • Improving traditional agricultural yields without forcing producers into dependence on synthetic inputs, thus outputs per area of marginal l和 increase 和 stabilise thanks to higher resilience.
  • Ensuring resilience to 气候变化, safeguarding ecosystem services 和 生物diversity crucial for food 和 agriculture.
  • 通过减少债务来减轻贫困, for example from the purchase of expensive synthetic inputs, 和 increasing returns on labor invested.

Learn how we work on food 和 nutrition security as well as sustainable food systems by advocating to governments around the world for the provision of focused support 和 appropriate policies.

We are also actively involved in multi-stakeholder dialogues with donors 和 major development agencies to support 和 help accelerate the uptake of organic agriculture 和 other agroecological systems as they are crucial to ensuring healthy food for all in the 21st century.

粮食安全委员会(粮安委) is, 在全球层面, the foremost inclusive 和 evidence-based international 和 intergovernmental platform for food security 和 nutrition (FSN).

AG体育app下载 -AG体育手机版 focuses its advocacy efforts on agroecology 和 nutrition, taking part in relevant negotiations, working groups 和 in the Civil Society Mechanism (CSM) -  the largest international space for civil society organisations (CSOs) working to eradicate food insecurity 和 malnutrition -  和 meeting country delegates to gain their support on these issues.

For the organic movement, the most important topic on the CFS agenda is agroecology. In 2019, the High Level Panel of Experts for 食物 Security 和 Nutrition (HLPE)  launched the report on “Agroecological 和 Other Innovative Approaches for Sustainable Agriculture 和 食物 Systems that Enhance 食物 Security 和 Nutrition”.

正如报告总结的那样,“the global food system is at a crossroads” “a profound transformation is needed at all scales in the face of demographic changes, increased pressure 和 competition over renewable resources, increasingly severe consequences of climatic changes 和 the loss of 生物diversity”.
