The State of Food and Agriculture 2013

Source:  United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization

From Executive Summary:

Malnutrition in all its forms – undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and overweight and obesity – imposes unacceptably high economic and social costs on countries at all income levels. The State of Food and Agriculture 2013: Food systems for better nutrition argues that improving nutrition and reducing these costs must begin with food and agriculture. The traditional role of agriculture in producing food and generating income is fundamental, but agriculture and the entire food system – from inputs and production, through processing, storage, transport and retailing, to consumption – can contribute much more to the eradication of malnutrition.

    Thursday, 26th March 2015

    If you're an intranet manager you may have been asked on more than one occasion to make your internal search tool more like Google. This might sound a very sensible undertaking given the popularity of the Google search engine and its increasing integration with other tools. However, the Google search engine isn't universally liked and the many other internet search engines that are available are testament to this. James Mullan focuses in on some of the most significant reasons why search within an organisation will never be like Google.
