FAO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean

The Regional Office works on a series of priority areas in order to move towards the total eradication of hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean. Working closely with national governments, civil society, academia, indigenous peoples, the private sector and non-governmental organizations, FAO aims to ensure food security for all men, women and children in the region.

Regional priorities and initiatives


Through Rregional Initiative 1, FAO is supporting major food security arrangements in the region through all sectors of society to ensure the right to food for all.

This initiative seeks to eradicate hunger and poverty in rural areas, stimulating the development of new economic opportunities in lagging territories.

 

 


This regional priority promotes actions that encourage agricultural, fisheries, livestock and forestry production, and considers the integration of biodiversity, the maintenance of ecosystem services, the reduction of carbon emissions, adaptation to climate change, disaster risk management and resilience.
