The year 2015 marks the end of the monitoring period for the Millennium Development Goal targets. 72 out of 129 developing countries have reached the MDG 1c hunger target of halving the proportion of the chronically undernourished. The #UNFAO Hunger Map 2015 highlights the progress made towards the goal of achieving a world free of #hunger and the challenges that still need to be faced: http://bit.ly/1GFSWz1

Modern ICTs can be critical for bridging information gaps for the vast number of people living on less than 2 USD per day. Since the 2005 World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis, solid progress has been made in making #ICTs available to farmers, rural communities, fisher folk and fishing communities. Find out a review of the past 10 years of the Action Line on e-agriculture: http://bit.ly/1IXhqpe

While #women are estimated to make up nearly half of all people in the #fisheries sector, their work often goes unrecognized and underpaid, and their access to opportunities and resources remains limited. These are among the key findings of a new review of women’s participation in the industry, published by #UNFAOhttp://bit.ly/1Kv0cjF

According to a new #UNFAO report, the Asia-Pacific region has achieved the Millennium Development Goals’ hunger target (MDG-1c) of halving the proportion of undernourished people in 2015. Despite this historic and remarkable achievement, there are 490 million people still suffering chronic hunger in the region. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1G1R6cZ #SOFI2015 #MDGProgress

The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2015 is now out!
Overall progress notwithstanding, 795 million people still lack the food they need for an active and healthy life. The new “UN Hunger report” takes stock of progress made towards achieving the internationally established #hunger targets, and reflects on what needs to be done, as we transition to the new post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda: http://bit.ly/1AtgpCF #UNFAO #SOFI2015

More than 75% of world’s poor reside in rural areas and most depend on agricultural production for their subsistence. FAO is empowering the #ruralpoor with access to resources and services they need to overcome poverty. Learn how: http://bit.ly/1FKZM5A

L'utilisation des semences améliorées est un des facteurs de production agricole.Dans les communautés rurales ce facteur semble ne pas intéresser les fermiers voilà pourquoi dans ce monde les populations souffrent, à ce là s'ajoute la méconnaissance d'une agriculture orientée vers le marché voilà pourquoi ces ménages souffrent de l'insécurité alimentaire et le manque des revenus au niveau de leurs ménages
