FAO-EU partnership

Policy dialogue

As a centre of excellence in normative work, FAO has a comparative advantage in facilitating international agreements in the areas of agriculture and food.

In the case of the  International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), which aims to prevent the spread of plant pests, the EU helps developing countries participate in its standard setting process.

FAO also offers a neutral forum to develop policies relating to agriculture and rural development, for instance through the IGAD Livestock Policy Initiative.

This initiative, funded with € 6 million by the EU, aims to strengthen the livestock sector in the IGAD region with a view to improving food security and reducing poverty.
