Clean Up the World is a community based environmental campaign that inspires and empowers communities from every corner of the globe to clean up, fix up, and conserve their environment. Now in its 24th year, Clean Up the World, held in conjunction with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), mobilises an estimated 35 million volunteers from 130 countries annually, making it one of the largest community-based environmental campaigns in the world.
Over recent decades, profound changes in food production and feeding regimens have had a major effect on the use of antibiotics in livestock and aquaculture farms. Most SEAR countries have experienced considerable growth in population, combined with improved living standards for part of the population. This situation induces a growing demand for animal proteins resulting in intensive breeding of pigs, poultry, and fish, with the routine use of antibiotics as growth promoters. The lack or weakness of regulations, adequate policies, and implementation of standards for antibiotic use in the food animal sector, together with low standards of biosecurity, hygiene, and sanitation, have accelerated the emergence and dissemination of antibiotic resistance.
Cirad received in Montpellier, on Monday July 10th the visit of a delegation from MITR PHOL group, the largest sugar miller in Thailand, headed by Mr. Isara Vongkusolkit.
Vietnam is the 4th rice producer with 40 million tons of paddy and ranks as the 2nd largest global exporter, selling ~ 8 million tons of milled rice (2014). Even if new exporters like Cambodia and Myanmar arise, if several importing countries in Africa have initiated support policy to reduce their food dependency, maintaining the Vietnamese exports capacity to address growing demands from China and developing countries in Middle East and Africa is of utmost importance to prevent global market crisis. Meanwhile, rice farming is facing a dual challenge of delivering sufficient and nutritious food to meet the projected demands of population growth and markets, and overcoming issues such as climate change, soil fertility depletion and water scarcity through sustainable agricultural intensification. The aim of this document is to introduce adaptation measures that have the potential, in the multiple Vietnamese rice agro-ecosystems, with specific emphasis on Mekong River Delta, to assist in designing a new generation of rice farming systems with strengthened resilience and adaptation capacity in front of climate change, enhancing natural capital and ecosystem services.
The project intitled “Predictive scenarios of health in Southeast Asia: linking land use and climate changes to infectious diseases” has been selected for funding by the French National Agency for Research (ANR) for funding.
