Description

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations founded in 1945 in Rome, Italy. Its main purpose is to eliminate world hunger and improve nutrition by coordinating the activities of governments in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and the fishing industry. FAO also supports countries through research, specialization, development, practical applications, and disaster relief.

FAO's work is aimed at reducing the severity of the world's poverty and hunger by developing agriculture, improving nutrition, and addressing food security challenges allowing access to the food necessary for an active and healthy life. The FAO acts as a neutral forum as well as a source of knowledge and information and helps developing countries and countries with economies in transition to modernize and improve agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. The organization's motto in Latin is “Fiat panis” – translated as “Let there be bread”. As of August 2018, FAO had 197 member states, the representatives of which meet every two years at the FAO Conference to review global policy issues and international frameworks and to summarize and approve the budget for the next two years.

FAO key sectors: Agriculture, Poverty Reduction, Hunger Elimination, Food Security, Nutrition, Research, Socio-Economic Development, Disaster Relief, Fisheries & Aquaculture, etc.
