FAO Awards

The new annual Awards acknowledge progress in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Awards are open to individuals, organizations, governments, foundations, academia or private sector leaders across the world.  We want to hear your story about how you are transforming agrifood systems, advocating for change, or bringing about a chain reaction towards better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life. Celebrate the efforts of individuals or institutions that are taking concrete steps towards building a sustainable food secure future for all and submit an application to the Awards Secretariat.                                               

 The call for the FAO Award for Achievement is now closed.
