Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

Achieving food security for all is at the heart of the efforts of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) – to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. Its three main goals are: the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all; and, the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
