Corporate Baseline Survey: working with FAO for a better world

The survey will be aimed at specific respondents in each sample country.  These respondents will include a selected number of experts representing the Government, UN agencies, international donors and International Financial Institutions, research institutions/academia, civil society and the private sector.
