UK donates $25 million to improve agricultural statistics
"Empowering farmers can change their lives. By improving statistics, this programme will contribute to this goal," says FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva. "The programme provides an excellent example of how FAO works with partners to translate global information into concrete results at household, community and country levels. The UK Government's generous support will help deliver enormous benefits to governments around the world and the people they serve," added the Director-General.
