Objective(s) of the engagement

FAO and EcorNaturaSì aim to develop and promote joint actions which have the potential to improve the livelihoods of populations living in rural areas and fragile ecosystems, such as mountains and islands landscapes. Both organizations work to ensure more inclusive food and agriculture systems at local, national and international levels, to reduce food loss and food waste, and to improve value chains and market access for small-scale producers, conservation and use of biodiversity, and animal welfare.
