FAO activities in SIDS

FAO enjoys a long history of partnership with SIDS, providing policy advice, analysis and technical assistance through its experts in agriculture, livestock, fisheries, forestry, natural resources management and food security. SIDS need to achieve sustainable development in the face of significant long-term and rapid on-set changes that they are increasingly faced with. FAO supports the resilience of livelihoods through a special agro-ecological approach.

FAO’s field programme and normative work has generated valuable experience, knowledge and lessons that are helping SIDS to overcome their challenges. There is now a need to build regional and national systems able to sustain and multiply these benefits.

The map below shows FAO projects currently in implementation in SIDS. For more detailed information about the projects, see the complete list.
