Le  programme alimentaire mondiale (PAM) en collaboration avec le ministère de l'Agriculture et de l'Elevage viennent de publier le rapport du mois d'Aout sur le système de suivi de la sécurite alimentaire au BURUNDI.

1. Une légère amélioration de la situation de la sécurité alimentaire est enregistrée par rapport à 2016 mais sans que la proportion de la population en insécurité alimentaire sévère change.

2. Les chocs récurrents, la crise économique actuelle et l'accès limité aux facteurs de production agricole constituent les facteurs majeurs de l’insécurité alimentaire.

3. La vente des produits agricoles (95%), le travail de main d’œuvre agricole (23%) et le petit commerce (14%)constituent les principales sources de revenus des ménages ruraux.

Dutch Development Results - Website!

With this website, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs presents the results that the Netherlands, together with national and international partners, has achieved in the field of development co-operation in 2016.

Have a look at this very informative website, with information on country level, countries and themes: http://www.dutchdevelopmentresults.nl/  

Inclusive sustainable development

Investing in inclusive sustainable development pays off. This was also apparent in 2016. The number of people living in extreme poverty has been further reduced to less than 10% of the world’s population. In 2010, this figure was 22% (and in 1990 it was 47%).

Making trade and investment flows sustainable is no easy feat in an unpredictable global economy. Climate change is not only leading to long-term drought but also to major flooding. And for truly equitable development to exist, attention must be paid to the disadvantaged position of women and girls. The Netherlands conti

                                                La protection de la Tomate

La tomate est un légume de fruit de la famille des solanacées, c’est-à-dire de même famille que le poivron, la pomme de terre, l’aubergine ou le piment. Cela signifie que certains ravageurs leurs sont communs.

La culture de la tomate devient de plus en plus importante mais son rendement moyen national en milieu paysan reste encore très faible. Ces faibles rendements sont liés aux techniques culturales utilisées et une forte pression parasitaire. Cette dernière engendre des pertes de production, et les pertes de 100% de la récolte ne sont pas rares sur la tomate.

Au Niger les pertes les plus importantes sont dues :

Aux chenilles de deux papillons ;

Un acarien, l’araignée rouge ;

Aux nématodes à galles, surtout sur les sols sableux ;

A plusieurs maladies&virus et

[Rapport] L’État de la sécurité alimentaire et de la nutrition dans le monde 2017

Les ambitions de transformation associées au Programme de développement durable à l’horizon 2030 appellent l’ensemble des pays et des parties prenantes à travailler de concert afin d’en finir avec la faim et de prévenir toutes les formes de malnutrition d’ici à 2030. Pour satisfaire ces ambitions, il faudra impérativement rendre l’agriculture et les systèmes alimentaires durables, de sorte à garantir la stabilité des disponibilités alimentaires et à donner à chacun accès à une nutrition satisfaisante et à la santé.

Organic fertilizer comes from material that are always going to waste such as vegetable remain, grass and weeds cutting and leaves. Also organic compost gives crops natural test and enriches the soil. 

Organic fertilizer can be made by using dry grass, pig manures, cow dungs, wood chips, saw dusts, papers, kitchen waste, chicken manure etc. Then mix the materials with water on a concrete floor and measure by using wheelbarrow or a bucket. After that make a pile and leave it for three to four days, while observing add water at your pile if it is dry or more materials if wet. Then measure using the thermometer, in three or four months your pile will be ready to use.
