Knowledge Management and Dissemination
A wide range of FAO’s activities are aimed at providing the international community with impartial information and knowledge, including statistics on food and agriculture. FAO’s technical advice is often requested by international public and private organizations. The private sector contributes to FAO’s knowledge and research capacity by providing data and information on market trends and emerging technologies. Private sector knowledge and technology can provide important contributions to public goods. FAO encourages and supports the sharing and dissemination of private sector information through global networks and along the value-chain. Examples include Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA), FishInfo Network (FIN), the Dimitra project and the Food Security Info Network (FSIN).
