Proceedings of the discussion “Bee products: providing nutrition and generating income”

Dear members,

attached you can find the proceedings of the discussion on "Bee products: providing nutrition and generating income - Honeybees, beekeeping and bee products in our daily lives"  which was hosted by the Global Forum for Food Security (FSN) in collaboration with TECA from 8 August to 1 September 2015.

You can read some interesting inputs from around the globe on the following issues:

  • What are the dietary and nutritional benefits known in your community for bee products?
  • Is honey affordable and available in your community all year round?
  • What are the prospects for beekeeping in the future? Beekeeping, poverty alleviation and food security: where are we headed?
  • With diseases, pests, habitat loss, colony collapse and climatic changes increasingly affecting apiculture around the world, what can we do to create sustainable conditions for agriculture and apiculture to coexist and to benefit from each other?
