FAO supports SIDS through policy advice, analysis and technical assistance in agriculture, fisheries, forestry and natural resources management in its efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, creating enabling environments for food security and nutrition; to transform food systems to improve nutrition-sensitivity, resilience and sustainability; and to empower people and communities to lead healthy and productive lives.

Supporting the implementation of the Samoa Pathway

The Small Island Developing States (SIDS) share unique and particular vulnerabilities, resulting in a complex set of food security and nutrition challenges. The complexity and magnitude of these challenges are daunting and far too great for any one agency, organization or country to solve on their own. Closer international cooperation and a more integrated approach are needed so that all stakeholders can play their part in supporting SIDS in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
