    Workshop 7 Synthesis - World Forum On Access to Land

    Conference Papers & Reports
    January, 2017


    The dominant agricultural model, based on the abusive and destructive use of natural resources, leads us into a health, social, ecological, climatic, economic and cultural impasse.

    In the North as in the South a regulatory arsenal limits the rights of peasants to exchange and reproduce their seeds. The privatization of seeds, the first link in the food chain, and the growing control over them by multinational companies seeking to increase their monopoly by imposing hybrid seeds and GMOs poses a threat to global sovereignty and food security.

    Em vários países em desenvolvimento, a agricultura é a principal actividade e é tida como a base para o crescimento das suas economias. Em Moçambique, apesar do emergente crescimento da indústria extractiva nos últimos anos e da redução considerável da percentagem de pessoas que tem a agricultura como actividade principal (de 60% em 2005 para 54% em 2012, segundo o Inquérito Agrário Integrado de 2012), a actividade agrícola continua a ser o principal sector económico, empregando a maior a parte da população, sobretudo no meio rural.

    Key Messages

    • A governance approach, combining public policy and private initiatives was effective in slowing down deforestation, but

    was unable to support a transition to more sustainable production systems.

    • New technical intensification models must be identified for low-productivity systems in degraded lands, adapted to the

    biophysical and sociotechnical conditions of the Amazonian landscapes.

    • Multiple constraints inhibit progress toward sustainable intensification of cattle ranching, and reversing them requires that

    Over the last two decades, 200 million people across the world have been lifted out of hunger. But as climate change brings more frequent and severe weather shocks such as droughts and floods, and makes rainfall patterns less predictable, these gains are under threat, especially among Africa’s smallholder farmers. Agriculture is Africa’s biggest employer. But mean temperatures are expected to rise faster in the continent than the global average, decreasing crop yields and deepening poverty.

    The results of this study reveal that the full inclusion of crop production in the forest landscape restoration approach could produce largescale,
    worldwide benefits for food security and therefore facilitate a wide uptake of restoration practices and the implementation of large
    restoration projects. The positive impacts are multifaceted and significant in size: a reduction in malnourished children ranging from three
    to six million; a reduced number of people at risk of hunger, estimated to be between 70 and 151 million; reduced pressure for expansion
