fao activities

Interest in and demand for safe and high quality food, produced under good agricultural practices (GAP) has been increasing in recent years and many developing countries are facing challenging national and international trading environments in the light of WTO, free trade agreements, multiplication of governmental GAP standards and private sector requirements.

FAO Good Agricultural Practice activities around the world seek to alleviate potential barriers to trade, by providing member countries with information, policy assistance and the capacity necessary to deal with these issues.

FAO has carried out many activities around the globe in terms of studies, expert consultations, training related to GAP, food quality and safety and workshops for the fresh fruit and vegetable, meat, milk, poultry and cereal sectors. These activities, focusing on information provision, technical assistance and capacity building, help developing countries cope with food system globalization and GAP standard proliferation and are highlighted below detailed by region, activity, commodity and country.
