Facilitate partnerships for food security and nutrition, agriculture and rural development between governments, development partners, civil society and the private sector. 

FAO engages with academic and research organizations to ensure that knowledge and research are used to obtain concrete results on the ground. By partnering with academia, we are capitalizing on the synergy generated by common goals, specifically, the goal of achieving food security.

Civil Society
FAO recognizes that CSOs play a critical role in the fight against hunger given their technical expertise, their proximity to and representation of the hungry and poor, and their increasing presence in the field

Private Sector
Effective engagement with the private sector can help the fight against hunger and malnutrition by enhancing FAO's work in agriculture, fishery, forestry, natural resource management, and the food value chain from farmer to consumer

FAO is the lead agency ensuring that agriculture cooperatives are recognized and remain in the international agenda. FAO encourages member governments to establish enabling environments conducive to improving small producers' livelihoods

Resource Partners
FAO works with partners to overcome food insecurity and malnutrition, increase and improve the provision of goods and services from agriculture, forestry and fisheries, reduce rural poverty, enable inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems and increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises
