LINKING FOOD SECURITY AND HEALTH

  1. 1. ByR.Djouaka, O. Coulibaly IITA Benin
  2. 2. Food Security How to increase productivity ? -Land and water management - Agricultural inputs Agricultural -Work productivity (Man Power) Productivity  Improved agricultural techniques and technologies  Appropriate and adapted mechanization  Adequate water management and Farmers Health irrigation systems  Increased Pesticides/Fertilizers utilization  More labor and human migrations Resulting Health issues  Water borne diseases  Occupational health risk  Migration related diseases Key Public Health Concerns Malaria Pesticides HIV/AIDS toxicology
  3. 3. Malariavectorcontrol Controlling malaria vectors in agriculture generated breeding sitesReducingSyntheticPesticides Sensitizing farmers and developing Pant Based insecticides (PBI) as alternative against agriculture pests and for vector control
  4. 4. Understandingmechanisms of insecticide 1 resistance We analyze the implication of the massive use of agricultural synthetic pesticides in the selection of insecticide resistance in malaria vectorsGeno-toxicity of pesticide 2 residues We use the Allium Cepa model to analyze the chromosomal aberrations likely to occur in farmers as a results of the massive synthetic pesticides utilization.
  5. 5. PlantExtractions 3 for PBI Producing plant based Plant Based Insecticides (PBI) for malaria vector control and agricultural pests Local production 4 of RUTF Fighting malnutrition through locally produced Ready to Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF)
