FAO Champion Award
FAO Award for Partnership
Foundations for Farming (FfF) of Zimbabwe has engaged with local communities and relevant stakeholders to improve people’s lives by responding to their needs and rights. FfF has supported beneficiaries in joint capacity-building activities with FAO, enhancing efforts to achieve the SDGs. The initiatives led by FfF demonstrated evidence of impact, helping nine million Zimbabweans achieve household food security. FfF has successfully reflected the principles of the Four Betters by working for better lives through the enhancement of small-scale farm profitability and improving the livelihoods of rural households, fostering inclusive growth and addressing gender inequalities.
FAO Award for Partnership
The partnership between FAO and the Wageningen University and Research (WUR) puts innovative collaborations and enhanced coordination at its centre. It sets a new joint vision with the two organizations bridging the science-policy interface, linking research staff and policy-makers, and working through agile actions to efficiently tackle challenges in a rapidly changing world. Collaboration with academic institutions is a natural choice for FAO as a knowledge-based organization promoting science-based policies and solutions. WUR as a world leader in teaching and research in agriculture has been a long-standing partner of FAO.
