    The climate change (CC) caused by increase in atmospheric concentration of CO2 and other Greenhouse Gases (GHGs), can be addressed through adaptation and mitigation strategies. Adaptation consists of strategies which minimize vulnerability to CC. The objective is to increase resilience of the ecosystems and communities through adoption of specific sustainable land management (SLM) techniques that have adaptive benefits. On the other hand, the goal of mitigation strategies is to enhance soil and vegetation (land) sinks for absorbing atmospheric CO2 and to minimize net emissions.

    L?élevage et la commercialisation d?animaux utiles permettent d?assurer quotidiennement la subsistance de plus d?un milliard de personnes. Mais aussi essentiels qu?ils soient pour l?alimentation, le revenu et la santé, ces systèmes d?élevage tropicaux peuvent autant altérer qu?améliorer les ressources en terres et en eau et génèrent, comme tous les systèmes d?élevage partout dans le monde, des gaz à effet de serre, qui contribuent au réchauffement climatique.

    Le système actuel de « gouvernance alimentaire mondiale » n'offre pas de sécurité adéquate contre les crises alimentaires futures et n'offre pas de garantie de succès dans l'éradication de la faim chronique. En dépit d'un énorme accroissement de la production alimentaire, le nombre des personnes souffrant de la faim ne cesse d'augmenter. Pour inverser cette tendance, l'autorité et les pouvoirs du Comité de la sécurité alimentaire mondiale devraient être considérablement renforcés.

    La crise financière initiale s'est développée pour devenir, en 2008, une crise économique mondiale. Cette crise non seulement exacerbe le problème aigu de la famine en réduisant toujours davantage le pouvoir d'achat des populations pauvres, mais encore menace de limiter pendant des années les possibilités de combattre la famine à long terme au moyen d'investissements et d'innovations.

    The years of war have led to a rapid decline in the nutritional status of people in the Democratic Republic of Congo. To cover their protein requirements, the rural population in the Kivu region in the east of the country have turned to raising guinea pigs. For many families these rodents are nowadays not just a vital element of their food security, but also an essential source of income.

    The current study attempts to examine whether large-scale agricultural investment of this type benefits the poor and how this investment can be implemented to increase benefits for the poor. It is arguable whether the poor need more land to grow crops to meet their food security requirements or need to benefit from large-scale agricultural investment in Cambodia. Although the poor households are capable of operating small plots of a few hectares each, they generally lack capital and the means to work large chunks of new land with forests or degrade forests.
