FAO COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme

The COVID-19 pandemic is jeopardizing human health and disrupting the food systems that are the foundations of health. Unless we take immediate action, we could face a global food emergency of severity and scale unseen for more than half a century.

FAO is calling for USD 1.2 billion in initial investments to finance FAO’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme that aims to provide an agile and coordinated global response to ensure nutritious food for all both during and after the pandemic.

The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme enables donors to leverage the Organization’s convening power, real-time data, early warning systems and technical expertise to direct support where and when it is needed most. It spans seven key priority areas:

1. Global Humanitarian Response Plan

2. Data for decision-making

3. Economic inclusion and social protection to reduce poverty

4. Trade and food safety standards

5. Boosting smallholder resilience for recovery

6. Preventing the next zoonotic pandemic

7. Food systems transformation

This brochure presents the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and invites a broad range of partnerships, including both new and renewed partnerships with FAO Members, other governments, the private sector, civil society, academia and cooperatives.
