Partnerships in action
Partnerships are at the heart of FAO's mission to help build consensus for a world without hunger. The effectiveness and credibility of the Organization as a policy-making forum and unique multilingual centre of excellence, knowledge and technical expertise depends to a considerable degree on its ability to work and develop strategic partnerships to harness efforts to eradicate hunger. Please find in this section which are the current partnerships in action.
Indigenous peoples have repeatedly asked for a more systematic dialogue with United Nations agencies. In 2010, FAO released the "FAO Policy on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples", with the objective to provide guidance to the agency's various technical units and encourage staff in headquarters and in the regions, as well as staff in FAO representations, to engage more systematically and responsibly with indigenous peoples and their organizations.
The Civil Society team (OCPP) took the opportunity to interview some of the representatives and to ask their opinions about the work FAO is doing with the indigenous peoples.
