Partnerships with Academia and Research Institutions greatly enhances FAO's ability to eliminate hunger and malnutrition and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. FAO collaborates with higher education institutions actively to mobilize knowledge and innovations, strengthen capacities, provide evidence-based solutions to policy processes and share its own experience from the ground with the academic community.

Partnering with Academia and Research Institutions

Academia and research institutions are key actors in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. With their vast technical expertise and ability to generate and disseminate knowledge and innovative solutions, academia and research institutions can support FAO and its Members in their actions towards achieving food and nutrition security and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

FAO’s Partnerships and UN Collaboration Division facilitates development of strategic cooperation with non-sate actors, including academia and research institutions. The division supports FAO’s technical departments and decentralized offices in the establishment and renewal processes of key partnership agreements to achieve the Organization’s mandate.

In partnering with academia and research institutions, FAO aims to:

  • Mobilize academic knowledge and information resources to benefit stakeholders on the ground; 
  • Develop capacities, stimulate innovative research, share and disseminate knowledge and experience; 
  • Increase academia's engagement in multi-stakeholder processes and dialogues on food security and sustainability issues;
  • Raise awareness on key initiatives for improving food security and nutrition, reducing rural poverty and achieving the SDGs.
