    Cette publication fournit un survol des principaux enjeux débattus lors de l’élaboration et de l’adoption de la Loi sur la sécurité alimentaire nationale de l’Inde (2013) qui contraint légalement les gouvernements nationaux et étatiques à étendre la protection sociale à la population du pays. Cela soulève plusieurs débats pertinents et dynamiques qui peuvent être utiles pour les décideurs politiques et les défenseurs, particulièrement dans les pays à faible revenue, mais également dans les économies émergentes souhaitant consolider leurs cadres programmatiques et légaux.

    The continuing and rapid degradation of rural watersheds has been a major concern for governments and civil society in Asia and the Pacific region. A root cause is the segmented management of land and water resources. This has been exacerbated by the cumulative and linked effects of an increase in demand for food, fuel and water due to population growth, competition for scarce land resources from biofuel production and a shift in preference for protein-rich diets. The expected adverse impact of climate change in the coming decades will most likely worsen the situation.

Puesto que no se trata de un estudio comparativo entre éste y otros tipos de enfoques, no se han tomado en consideración casos de planteamientos más “tradicionales”.

    Les femmes participent de manière considérable à l’économie rurale dans toutes les régions en développement. Si les rôles qu’elles assument sont différents selon les régions, on observe toutefois partout qu’elles ont un accès plus restreint que les hommes aux ressources et aux débouchés qui leur permettraient d’être plus productives.
