United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is an organization committed to achieving food security for all. The mandate of the FAO is to improve agricultural productivity, contribute to the growth of the world economy, raise levels of nutrition and better the lives of rural populations. FAO accomplishes these objectives by creating and sharing critical information about agriculture, food and natural resources; however, the information does not flow one way. Additionally, the FAO acts as a liaison among different partners with varied levels of expertise to connect those who have the information and those who need it. The turning of knowledge into action creates a mutually reinforcing cycle.
