FAO's Global Action on Pollination Services for Sustainable Agriculture

International Initiatives

Globally, numerous initiatives on pollinators are carried out by different actors. FAO coordinates and supports various aspects of these international initiatives, including the International Pollinators Initiative 2.0 (IPI 2.0).  The goal of these plans is to promote coordinated action to preserve managed and wild pollinators, and to encourage the development and the implementation of sustainable agricultural practices. These initiatives also include different activities for the preservation of the ecosystem services provided by pollinators.

International Pollinator Initiative 2018-2030

This follow-up plan to the first International Pollinator Initiative promotes coordinated worldwide action to enable policies and strategies, support field-level implementation, engage civil society and private sector actors, and promote monitoring, research, and assessment for the conservation and sustainable use of pollinators.

African Pollinator Initiative

The plan aims to protect, understand and promote the essential process of pollination for sustainable livelihoods. It is divided in four components: public awareness and education, placing pollination in the mainstream, conservation and restoration, and capacity building.

North American Pollinator Initiative

NAPPC is a collaborative body of over 170 different partners. The mission of NAPPC is to encourage the health of pollinating animals in North America through the implementation of various initiatives such as: raising public awareness and education, encouraging collaborations between participants and federal state and local government agencies, promoting the conservation of pollinator habitat, and supporting  research.

Oceania Pollinator Initiative

This initiative was  launched in 2008 and aims to: monitor pollinator decline, address the lack of taxonomic information, assess the economic value of pollination and the economic impact of any decline and promote the conservation, the restoration, and the sustainable use of pollinators in agriculture & ecosystems, in Oceania.
