Pour une agriculture et un développement rural axés sur la nutrition

mai 2015
En 1977, le FIDA a fait de l’amélioration "du niveau nutritionnel des populations les plus pauvres dans les pays en développement" l’un des principaux objectifs de son accord fondateur. Depuis, les gouvernements ainsi que les organisations de la société civile et de développement ont également reconnu la place centrale de la nutrition – qui englobe les questions de dénutrition, carences en micronutriments et surpoids – dans la problématique du développement. Non seulement la nutrition est fonction de la croissance économique, mais, en améliorant le capital humain, elle constitue également un facteur essentiel du développement économique et social.

Mapping land and natural resource rights, use and management

juin 2012
Participatory mapping uses a range of tools including data collection tools, such as mental mapping, ground mapping, participatory sketch mapping, transect mapping and participatory 3-dimensional modelling. Recently participatory mapping initiatives have begun to use more technically advanced geographic information technologies, including Global Positioning Systems (GPS), aerial photos and use of remote-sensing images, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other digital computer-based technologies. IFAD supported projects and programmes are increasingly making use of these technologies for mapping land and natural resource rights, use and management.

Toolkit: Integrated homestead food production
