World Food Day 2017, marked annually on 16 October is akin to the national day...

The FAO Country Programme Framework (CPF 2013 - 2017) defines the priority areas in Sri Lanka's agricultural and food security development objectives. It provides FAO and the related Ministries a medium term strategic plan for action and a roadmap for planning FAO technical assistance.

The process resulted in two broad priority areas for development plus several outcomes and outputs for FAO assistance: achieving a sustainable food and nutrition security in the country while developing livelihoods in the rural agricultural sector, which has three sub-sectors: food crops, livestock and fisheries; and the second one, preserving and rehabilitation of forestry and biodiversity of forests.
