Resource Partners


In the drive to achieve results towards each of its strategic priorities, FAO works with a variety of resource partners, International Financing Institutions, the private sector, foundations and national governments. Partners may provide both financial and non-financial support as well as knowledge-sharing and expertise.

FAO’s work is funded by assessed and voluntary contributions. The total FAO budget planned for 2018-2019 is USD 2.6 billion. Of this amount 39 percent comes from assessed contributions paid by member countries, while 61 percent will be mobilized through voluntary support.

The voluntary contributions provided by Members and other partners support the Strategic Objectives of FAO and are thus focused on achieving Members’ goals and delivering on agreed results. At country level, FAO ensures that all projects and programmes are aligned with the Country Programming Framework, which represents agreed priorities for action between FAO and governments.

FAO’s corporate Resource Mobilization and Management Strategy and Operational Plan  guides FAO’s efforts in mobilizing resources.
