The Directorate-General International Partnerships (INTPA) of the European Commission aims to develop a stronger role for the European Union globally, eradicating poverty, advancing towards the Sustainable Development Goals, and promoting democracy, human rights and the rule of law.

FAO and Norway, working through the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), have a long-standing partnership built on shared values, goals and global commitments. Norway’s cooperation has been directed towards food security through the eradication of poverty and hunger, including technical development interventions, food and agricultural emergency and rehabilitation assistance.
