Sharing skills and knowledge in the agricultural sector

FAO and the Peace Corps have been working together since the early sixties. Through a recent agreement both organizations have reinforced their collaboration to help improve the conditions of the rural poor around the world.

From developing school gardens to helping create business plans for young farmers, Peace Corps volunteers can work with FAO in a wide variety of areas. Peace Corps volunteers benefit from FAOs technical expertise in agriculture, forestry, fisheries and nutrition and FAO in turn benefits from the volunteers presence at the village level and their ability to help share skills and know-how with the local farmer community.

Since 2002 FAO has benefited from the support of over 50 Peace Corps Volunteers in 17 countries.
