FAO and EU Partnership

The EU and FAO are driven by a mutual commitment to end poverty, hunger and malnutrition on the planet. This partnership is based on shared interests, a common vision, and joint efforts to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Together, the EU and FAO leverage innovative approaches, tools and products that benefit the global community, while also serving as important agents of positive change for millions of people in developing, emerging and developed countries, including those in the European Union.

During a strategic dialogue meeting in May 2021, the EU and FAO identified five priority areas for strategic cooperation in coming years:

  • Food systems and One Health
  • Climate change, biodiversity and natural resources
  • Food crises, food security and resilient livelihoods
  • Sustainable agrifood value chain investments and policies
  • Food system transformation through digitalization

The European Union is one of the largest resource partner in terms of voluntary contributions to FAO, and is among FAO’s most important partners through programmes implemented across the world.
