The FAO Pakistan Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2018-2022 sets out the development priorities for collaboration with Pakistan. 

The CPF has three priority areas which are Zero Hunger: healthy, safe and nutritious food for all, climate smart resilient agriculture and sustainable ecosystems including forests, fisheries, livestock, rangeland and water management and inclusive and efficient agriculture and food systems.

The framework was formulated through extensive consultations with the federal and provincial governments and institutions.  It will cover the period 2018-2022 aligned with the priorities of the government and the UN planning cycle OPIII.

Gul Bano is leading the way for women in Sindh, Pakistan, promoting new skills and livelihoods.

Nestled among date trees and endless lush fields in southeastern Pakistan is the district of Tando Allahyar. The main source of income for many villages in the area is farming, as it is in the rest of the province of Sindh. However, despite the vast area of arable land, people struggle to make a living. The villages here have only limited water and electricity and lack functioning schools. In one such village lives Gul Bano, a fifty-one year-old mother of seven who is changing the narrative of the women in Tando Allahyar.
