The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. FAO aims to promote the achievement of National Development Plan goals focused on poverty reduction, food security, natural resource management and improved livelihoods for the poor and vulnerable. FAO also integrates gender equality, nutrition, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, capacity development and governance into all interventions at all scales.
