FAO Liaison Office in New York

The FAO Liaison Office with the United Nations (UN) in New York has a lead responsibility in developing and implementing policies that enhance FAO's cooperation with the UN system, capitalizing on synergies between our work and that of other UN bodies, agencies, funds and programs, and of Member States.

In doing so, we support decision-making processes carried out at FAO headquarters in relation to developments in the UN system, mainly by representing FAO at working and coordination meetings, liaising with permanent delegations to the UN in New York, and establishing partnerships with relevant institutions in the New York area.
