Office of Communications

Communication is at the heart of FAO’s mission to help build consensus for a world without hunger. The effectiveness and credibility of the Organization as a policy-making forum and unique multilingual centre of excellence, knowledge and technical expertise depends to a considerable degree on its ability to communicate its work to harness efforts to eradicate hunger.

The Office of Communications (OCC) is responsible for all external and internal communication activities of the Organization. It ensures coherence and consistency in FAO’s messaging and communications’ outputs, as well as enables cost-effectiveness in use of communication-related resources across the Organization.


The functions of the office are performed through the following areas of activities: Media Relations, Digital Media, Publications and Library, Outreach and Promotions,  Internal Communication.
