Subject: Message 41 - Questions for Week 3 Date: Tue, 20 Mar 2001 14:19:47 +0100 From: RIO10-Moderator To: "''" Dear Colleagues, Today the third and final week of the SARD E-Conference begins. Thank you for the contributions you have made during Weeks One and Two. You will shortly receive a summary of the Week Two interventions. As we reiterated with the questions for Week Two, the questions for this E-Conference on SARD are cumulative. You may combine responses to questions from weeks one, two or three. In the first week, we asked what you consider to be the most critical challenges and trends in land and agriculture (Question 1) and how the Task Managers' Report to CSD-10 can be improved (Question 2). In the second week, we asked that you identify root causes of current trends and challenges (Question 3) and what proposals you have for action and the way forward on SARD (Question 4). This is the final week of the E-Conference, which will conclude just before the start of the 16th Session of the FAO Committee on Agriculture (COAG) from 26 to 30 March. During COAG there will be a SARD Forum, held concurrently on 29 March, bringing together representatives of civil society, government and the private sector. This E-Conference is part of the preparation for this event, as stated in our introductory message. (The draft agenda for the Forum was sent to all E-Conference participants last week.) In bringing the E-Conference to bear even more specifically on the agenda for the Forum, we ask you to consider the following questions related to resources and cooperation for achieving SARD: QUESTION 5. From your perspective, can you provide examples of effective and integrated use of natural, financial and human resources for SARD at the local, national or international levels? QUESTION 6. Can you provide examples of effective cooperation among diverse stakeholders in relation to technicaland/or policy areas of SARD? Please address local community levels of action and/or national or international levels and/or examples extending across levels. It would also be very useful for you to describe the mechanisms and kinds of agreements or working relationships that have emerged in these examples. Thank you for your participation. We look forward to your contributions in Week Three of the E-Conference! Best regards from the Moderators
