FAO Global Action on One Country One Priority Product

The Global Action (GA) on Green Development of Special Agro-Products (SAPs), themed as “One Country – One Priority Product” (OCOP), is a five-year plan (2021-2025) developed to support Members in the transformation to MORE efficient, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable agri-food systems.

The SAPs are recognized as unique in terms of national or cultural heritage, flavor or nutritional content, unique methods of producing or processing and attractive to domestic and international market demands. Vanilla, saffron, sea cucumbers or  mangoes are examples.

Developing SAPs can improve food security and rural livelihoods, strengthen value chain actors and expand consumer choices. The integration of ‘green’ innovations and technologies can bring about resilience and sustainability and help achieve the SDGs. Challenges such as natural resource constraints, environmental pollution, ecological degradation, and climate change will be addressed with context-specific interventions.
