From 22 November to 12 December, the tour will include a visit to the FAO Library 65th Anniversary exhibit. The exhibition features a selection of the library’s most beautiful incunabula (books printed before 1501) and rare books from 15th to the 18th century.

Welcoming you to FAO

FAO believes that everyone can play a part in ending hunger. That's why we open our doors to the public to show you how.

Visit us to learn how FAO is working with governments, civil society, the private sector and other strategic stakeholders to achieve Zero Hunger, improve nutrition, drive economic and social progress and ensure the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources.

Discover also how you can make an impact by simply changing day to day habits at home, at work, while shopping and by speaking up. Getting to zero will require active collaboration between governments, international organizations, the private sector, academia, farmers, civil society and the public. In fact change starts with you.

Walk through the room and halls where world leaders have discussed food issues and made groundbreaking decisions for global food security.

Find out about our programmes across the world, and meet some of the world's greatest experts who make FAO the leading UN agency for tackling hunger through knowledge generation and policy support.
