The Country Programming Framework Rwanda (CPF) 2019-2023 states the priorities guiding the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)’s collaboration with the Government of Rwanda (GoR) based on identified gaps and comparative advantages in the areas of agriculture, food and nutrition security, fisheries, and forestry.
