The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launches its new Annual and Monthly Funding Overview websites

Further enhancing communication, transparency and accountability, while recognizing the contributions of the Organization’s Resource Partners


Rome – The newly released Annual Report for 2020, 2021 and 2022 raises the visibility of the Organization's Resource Partners, including FAO Members, international financial institutions (IFIs), United Nations entities, vertical funds and private sector partners. A new Monthly Funding Overview also provides regular and more detailed updates on FAO’s Resource Partners, presenting a wide spectrum of analytical information through an engaging and interactive interface.

As a specialized agency of the United Nations, FAO leads global efforts to defeat hunger and achieve food security for all, helping to ensure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. The Organization is firmly established as a universal partner to all who are committed to ending hunger by 2030 and will continue to forge reliable partnerships with different sectors and stakeholder groups – including the most marginalized – to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Within an ever-changing global landscape, FAO is working to develop new business models that will help mobilize resources for investment and financing flows. The Organization’s Program Priority Areas guide the work that FAO implements under the Four Betters and represent FAO’s comparative advantage in contributing to the 2030 Agenda. FAO's program of work is made possible through the generous contributions of its resource partners, who finance and support the Organization in improving and transforming food systems and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2022, FAO achieved a significant milestone by surpassing the USD 2 billion mark in voluntary contributions. The Organization’s total budget for 2022 was the highest in its history, reflecting partners’ increasing trust. This was made possible through the Organization's strong partnerships with a record number of resource partners (112), 32 of which provided their highest-ever annual contribution. Despite ongoing global economic and political challenges, the level of voluntary contributions to FAO in 2022 increased by 66 percent compared to the average for the 2018-2021 period and 51 percent over 2021. The year was also marked by outstanding direct collaboration with IFIs, which accounted for 24 percent of total voluntary contributions – both through direct execution and through triangular arrangements with Member States, the highest share in FAO's history.

Funding provided by these partners was essential to reaching 140 countries and territories across the globe and supporting FAO's mission of ensuring food security, resilient livelihoods and all aspects of agriculture and nutrition.
