Forest protection and forestry practices are closely linked to decisions that address measures on climate change, biodiversity and the institutional framework for sustainable development. This rich and multifaceted text documents the progress made in creating the political, economic and social conditions that are necessary for a sustainable and multifunctional use of forest resources. "The Forestry Compendium" is the multimedia tool for identification, learning about and selecting specific tree species for trials. Drawing on maps, pictures and other information sources it provides a full species picture. The user-friendly interface also gives you a fast and targeted search.

That family farming can meet the Zero Hunger Challenge launched at the Rio + 20 Summit in 2012 is the thesis behind this collection of papers, rich in data and content on issues relating to India and the larger Asia Pacific context. Presented as background for the Asia-Pacific Regional Consultation commemorating 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming, these papers emphasise the fact that family farming is both a way of life and a means to sustainable livelihood. Agricultural economists, anthropologists, scientists, academics have come together to bring out clearly the importance of family farming in agriculture, highlighting gender roles as well as mainstreaming nutritional aspects. Not just strengthening household food, nutrition and livelihood security, family-run farms have helped conserve agro-biodiversity and a wide range of crop varieties, and made seed production and storage a part of their work and culture. This book will capture the interest of everyone who believes a hunger-free world is not an impossible dream.

  • Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) in marine temperate waters / Kelly Barrington, Thierry Chopin and Shawn Robinson
  • Integrated marine and brackishwater aquaculture in tropical regions / Max Troell
  • Integrated aquaculture (INTAQ) as a tool for an ecosystem approach in the Mediterranean Sea / Dror Angel and Shirra Freeman.
This technical paper provides a comprehensive review of current integrated mariculture practices around the world in three papers covering temperate zones, tropical zones and one semi enclosed ecosystem, the Mediterranean Sea. Integrated mariculture includes a diverse range of co-culture/farming practices, from integrated multitrophic aquaculture to the more specialized integration of mangrove planting with aquaculture, called aquasilviculture. Modern integrated mariculture systems must be developed in order to assist sustainable expansion of the sector in coastal and marine ecosystems.

This international workshop was organized in order to identify factors of unsustainability and over exploitation in fisheries and review major issues in the implementation of international fisheries instruments. The Workshop was based on a review of discussion papers that took into account the outcomes of the previous workshops on these issues. It addressed the following thematic issues: governance and fisheries management; causes or solutions for unsustainability; access and fishing rights; fishery management and sustainability dimensions; and small scale issues and developing country perspective. This document contains the report of the Workshop and eighteen discussion papers submitted by participants.

It is widely recognized that the development of aquaculture in the Wider Caribbean region is inhibited, in part, by the lack of technical expertise, infrastructure, capital investment and human resources. Furthermore, seed supply for native species relies, for the most part, on natural collection, subject to natural population abundance with wide yearly variations. The establishment of a regional hatchery facility, supporting sustainable aquaculture through the seed production of native molluscan species was discussed at the FAO workshop "Regional shellfish hatchery: A feasibility study" held in Jamaica in October 2010, by representatives of Caribbean governments and experts in the field. The current document summarizes the findings of the workshop and outlines four follow-up recommendations on steps required for the successful implementation of a regional facility.
