FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia

Working with others adds value to FAO’s work and enables the Organization to achieve more.

In the Europe and Central Asia region, FAO collaborates with development agencies, international financing organizations, civil society groups organizations, private companies, industry associations, academic and research institutions, and of course Member Governments.


Partnerships provide technical assistance, research, information and knowledge sharing, networking, outreach and advocacy, and more. In partnership, everyone benefits – rural populations, communities, government staff, and of course the partner institutions themselves, including FAO.

In some cases FAO’s partners make voluntary contributions to finance priority programmes and projects. In Europe and Central Asia, the European Union, the Government of Türkiye and the Government of Hungary are three important resource partners – financing agriculture and rural development work, response to food and agriculture emergencies, and other important activities in countries across the region.
