Principles

The work of FAO in emergencies is driven by the following engagement:

Vision

"We strive for a world free of hunger and malnutrition, where food and agriculture contribute to improving the living standards of all, especially the poorest, in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner".

Mission

"We support countries and partners to prepare for and respond to food and agricultural threats and emergencies".

The people we serve

"We help farmers, fishers, foresters, herders and their families to recover from crises".
