Our Office

The FAO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (FAO RLC) has been located in Santiago, Chile, since 1955.

For the purpose of promoting more direct and streamlined relations with Governments, FAO National Representations have been established in most of the Region's Member Nations.

Furthermore, FAO has established a Sub-regional Office for the Caribbean, located in Barbados; one for Mesoamerica, located in Panama; and a Technical Support Unit for the Southern Cone in Chile.

There are currently 33 Latin American and Caribbean States that are FAO Members and work with the Organization to guarantee food security for all their inhabitants.
