The LEAP Partnership is founded on a voluntary and collaborative process between FAO and three main stakeholder groups and is based on the principles of equity and balance of constituencies. Three stakeholder groups, the private sector, FAO member countries and non-governmental organizations form the basis of this initiative. FAO is the convener of the Partnership. Being listed as LEAP partner in this page does not necessarily make the entity an FAO partner.
