The SFE mandate mirrors that of FAO in general: i.e. within the context of FAO’s efforts of achieving food security for all, through the improvement in levels of nutrition, the betterment of rural livelihoods, the improvement of agricultural productivity as well as through the contribution to the growth of world economy.

SFE’s four main activities, all related to agriculture and rural development, can be paraphrased from the global FAO mandate as:

  • Putting available and accessible information within reach of all concerned satkeholders;
  • Providing policy and strategic advice and sharing expertise;
  • Providing a meeting place for nations;
  • Bringing knowledge to the field, especially international best practices.
