Outreach and advocacy

Many of the activities of inter-governmental organizations (IGOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) based in Geneva touch on agriculture and rural development, food security and nutrition issues of direct relevance to the work of FAO.

The FAO Liaison Office in Geneva (LOG) is the face of FAO in Geneva and seeks to participate in relevant policy debates, to strengthen partnerships with sister organizations in areas of common concern and to ensure that the Organization's work and perspectives on various issues are well represented in relevant processes and initiatives taken in Geneva.  

Liaising effectively with IGOs, NGOs and other institutions based in Geneva, LOG helps to strengthen FAO’s cooperation with other development partners and contributes to the common objective of food and livelihood security for all.
