Trade and Environment Review 2013 Developing and developed countries alike need a paradigm shift in agricultural development: from a "green revolution" to a "truly ecological intensification" approach. This implies a rapid and significant shift from conventional, monoculture-based and high external-input-dependent industrial production towards mosaics of sustainable, regenerative production systems that also considerably improve the productivity of small-scale farmers. We need to see a move from a linear to a holistic approach in agricultural management, which recognizes that a farmer is not only a producer of agricultural goods, but also a manager of an agro-ecological system that provides quite a number of public goods and services (e.g. water, soil, landscape, energy, biodiversity, and recreation) UNCTAD's Trade and Environment Review 2013 (TER13) contends. TER13 highlights that the required transformation is much more profound than simply tweaking the existing industrial agricultural system.

L'Arbre des Possibles - Blog 04.09.2015Les avions du futur Pour s'adapter à une fin prochaine du pétrole, de nouveaux concepts d'avions sont à l'étude, et certains sont assez loin de ceux qu'on est habitués à voir voler aujourd'hui... Tout d'abord, Progress Eagle, d'une envergure de 100 mètres,capable de transporter 800 personnes sans aucune pollution grâce à ses panneau solaires et ses 6 moteurs à hydrogène qui ne rejettent que de la vapeur d'eau. Mais le projet le plus futuriste est certainement CleanEra, conçu par l'université technologique de Delft et qui fait carrément penser à un OVNI... Enfin, Aircruise n'est pas vraiment un avion mais plutôt une sorte de dirigeable destiné à être un hotel volant.

Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds Dear Reader: Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds is the th installment in the National IntelligenceCouncil’s series aimed at providing a ramework or thinking about the uture. As with previouseditions, we hope that this report will stimulate strategic thinking by identiying critical trends andpotential discontinuities. We distinguish between megatrends, those actors that will likely occur under any scenario, and game-changers, critical variables whose trajectories are ar less certain.Finally, as our appreciation o the diversity and complexity o various actors has grown, we haveincreased our attention to scenarios or alternative worlds we might ace. Global Trends 2030. This volume starts with a look back at the our previous Global Trends reports. The blog had over 140 posts and over 200 comments. Global Trends 2030 is seen elsewhere, wehave detailed the reactions o our international experts to the initial drat in a special box ollowingthe introduction.

Destruction massive - Jean Ziegler Toutes les cinq secondes un enfant de moins de dix ans meurt de faim, tandis que des dizaines de millions d’autres, et leurs parents avec eux, souffrent de la sous-alimentation et de ses terribles séquelles physiques et psychologiques. Et pourtant, les experts le savent bien, l’agriculture mondiale d’aujourd’hui serait en mesure de nourrir 12 milliards d’êtres humains, soit près du double de la population mondiale. Nulle fatalité, donc, à cette destruction massive. Comment y mettre fin ? En prenant d’abord conscience des dimensions exactes du désastre : un état des lieux documenté, mais vibrant de la connaissance acquise sur le terrain par celui qui fut si longtemps en charge du dossier à l’ONU, ouvre le livre. Comme toujours avec Jean Ziegler, la souffrance a un visage, l’oppression un nom, et les mécanismes à l’œuvre sont saisis dans leur application concrète. Au nom de la justice et de la dignité de l’Homme.
