    Эта книга – рассказ о 70-летней истории ФАО, об основных действующих лицах и об их работе. Мы разыскали в архивах ФАО неопубликованные черно-белые фотографии и составили из них альбом, иллюстрирующий ранние годы становления Организации. Книга также представляет собой отчет о десяти важнейших достижениях ФАО, в числе которых: искоренение чумы крупного рогатого скота, подписание договора о генетических ресурсах растений, жизненно важное соглашение о сохранении биоразнообразия на планете и кодекс в едения ответственного рыболовства, необходимый для сохранения морской экосистемы.

     * Arantxa Guereña
    La agricultura ya no es la base de las economías suramericanas pero sigue siendo estratégica en el empleo, la balanza comercial, el crecimiento económico, equilibrio territorial y seguridad alimentaria. Los gobiernos de la región deben revisar su sesgo hacia la agroexportación, su miopía de género, garantizar el equilibrio en el acceso a la tierra y el agua y situar la pequeña agricultura en el centro de las políticas agrarias y de inversión pública. Esta sería una vía para reducir la pobreza y la desigualdad.

    Pour une approche des « droits humains »
    Les Directives volontaires sur le droit humain à l'alimentation constituent un nouvel instrument de lutte contre la faim dans le cadre du droit international. Elles se révèlent être une arme nouvelle et prometteuse contre la sous-alimentation. Grâce à elles, la politique du développement et les droits de l'Homme s'allient dans la lutte pour le droit à l'alimentation. L'« approche des droits humains » est devenue le nouveau mot d'ordre dans le combat contre la faim.

    Les Directives volontaires adoptées en 2004 à l'appui de la concrétisation progressive du droit à l'alimentation ont eu le grand mérite de faire figurer ce dernier en bonne place à l'ordre du jour de la politique internationale du développement. Pour éviter tout décalage entre la théorie et la pratique, il faut que les gouvernements, les organisations de développement et les bailleurs de fonds concertent leurs efforts pour mettre ces directives en oeuvre et accélérer la concrétisation du droit à l'alimentation au niveau national.
