THE AFRICAN UNION
The Renewed Partnership to End Hunger in which FAO is engaged with the African Union, Nepad and Lula Institute provides an operational platform and collaborative mechanism to respond to your requests and make the Goal of Ending Hunger a reality in our countries.
The FAO’s renewed-commitment for a hunger-free Africa also serves as a means to build awareness and strong partnerships as well as to facilitate dialogue among Regional Organizations or Regional Economic Communities-RECs such us the Economic Community of West African States, Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), Southern African Development Community (SADC), etc.) and other development partners in Africa (AfDB).
THE EUROPEAN UNION
Increased collaboration confirms that the EU acknowledges FAO as a key partner in its fight to alleviate rural poverty and hunger, and that it recognises the crucial role of agriculture in bringing this about.
The European Union became a member of FAO in 1991. Since 1993 the two institutions are engaged in technical cooperation, and in 2004 the EU and FAO became strategic partners.
