Partnerships have been instrumental in the work of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to achieve #ZeroHunger and make a difference in the lives and livelihoods of farmers, fisherfolk and livestock keepers.
These partnerships demonstrate the many ways in which Member Nations and their various governmental agencies can come together to tackle the world’s greatest challenges.
Together with these partners, FAO is contributing to the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with tangible results that can be seen in the stories of our beneficiaries.
The stories from the field in this report highlight the real achievements and results of FAO’s five Strategic Objectives.
- Help eliminate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition
- Make agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable
- Reduce rural poverty
- Enable inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems
- Increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises
While FAO’s transformative interventions have consistently delivered value for money to our resource partners and the international community, more still needs to be done.
There is too much at stake for us to waver in our commitment to achieve Zero Hunger.
This digital report describes FAO’s vision, supporters, and funding mechanisms, reveals that which differentiates FAO, presents evidence of the value that FAO adds to interventions and tells stories of our beneficiaries and partners.
