    Vietnamese food systems have experienced a transition process since the late 1980s Đổi mới reforms. This paper examines the historical and ongoing transitions of pork and vegetable networks, using the Multi-Level Perspective (MLP), the Multi-Pattern Approach (MPA) and insights from food systems research. Our findings show that there was a shift from collective and self-subsistent farming to commercial small-scale farming in the late 1980s, and a rapid institutionalisation of smallholders and wet markets in the early 1990s.

    Recent global crises have led to diverse impacts across the world’s low- and middle-income regions, reflecting local conditions and differing policy responses. These effects are often compounded by more local shocks and crises, including prolonged conflict and violence, natural disasters, and fragile economic and governance systems. This section examines the impacts of recent food crises to identify both future risks and promising policy options that could improve early warning, immediate response, and resilience building in each region.

    Nutrition-related problems are a widespread challenge in the Philippines. Many factors contribute to these problems - the availability and affordability of vegetables, for example, which are jeopardized by challenges such as seasonality and inconsistent yields due to the impacts of climate change. Crop improvement and on-farm diversification, particularly using indigenous vegetables (IVs), can help address these challenges, while also improving rural livelihoods, nutrition, and food security; and even safeguarding local culture and tradition.

    The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is
    extremely vulnerable to climate change and is also the
    most gender unequal region in the world. According to the
    Global Gender Gap report, the gender gap is highest in the
    MENA region (60.9 percent progress toward parity), and “at
    the current relative pace, it would take an estimated 142.4
    years to close” (World Economic Forum, 2021: 26).
    Agriculture in the MENA region is becoming increasingly
    feminized, with women representing more than 50 percent

    Zinc is an important nutrient for plant growth and development. Its availability is influenced by zinc solubilizing microbes (ZSMs). The effects of commonly promoted agronomic practices on the abundance of ZSMs are so far not well understood. In this study, conducted in 2019, we assessed the effects of farmyard manure (FYM) application, either sole or in combination with residue and/or inorganic fertilizer inputs, on ZSM community structure using 11 treatments in a long-term (17 years) integrated soil fertility management experiment located in Western Kenya.

    The CGIAR Climate Security has developed a safeguard programming assessment tool for conflict-sensitive and peace-responsive climate action in agricultural settings. The Climate Security Sensitivity Tool (CSST) is used to evaluate, ex-ante, the extent to which a proposed climate adaptation intervention addresses local drivers of conflict and insecurity and recommends strategies to strengthen their suitability. It seeks to prevent unintended consequences, avoid conflict relapses, and contribute to peacebuilding.

    This working paper uses an online issue mapping approach to explore two research questions: 1) How is human mobility in Jordan represented in local and international social media conversations? 2) What associations between human mobility and climate security-related topics are present in these public debates? Overall, results show diverging agendas between national and international actors, as well as a low prevalence of climate and security related topics, both in terms of absolute frequencies and in relation to the content that garnered most attention in conversations.
