FAO Subregional Office for Central Asia

Most countries in the Central Asia subregion are in transition from planned to market economies, and in the process of reforming their institutions. In general, they have high potential for developing their agricultural sectors and achieving their food security objectives.

FAO provides analysis and advice in policy reform for agriculture, land tenure and natural resources. The Organization’s technical assistance covers institution building, development of knowledge and competencies, and exchange of experience among countries facing the challenges of transition.
