Environmental conventions and agreements

FAO is a key partner in the implementation of three environmental conventions, namely, the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD) - FAO's mandate involving agrobiodiversity - the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Environmental conventions and agreements addresses mainly technical and policy issues related to these three conventions. It deals mostly with normative activities (such as policy and technical guidelines and databases), but it also includes information on field programmes. Selected technical and institutional links to many other partners that support these conventions are also included under this theme.
