The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has several
strategic objectives that support its overall mission of achieving food
security, reducing hunger and malnutrition, and promoting sustainable
agriculture and rural development. The three main goals of the FAO are:
hunger, food insecurity, and malnutrition: FAO works to promote
sustainable agriculture and food systems, increase agricultural
productivity and incomes, and improve access to food and nutrition for
agriculture, forestry, and fisheries more productive and sustainable: FAO
supports the development and adoption of sustainable agricultural
practices, works to improve the management of natural resources such as
forests and fisheries, and promotes the use of new technologies and
innovations to increase productivity and resilience.
rural poverty: FAO supports the development of rural communities by
promoting investment in agriculture, improving access to markets and
services, strengthening rural institutions, and promoting inclusive and
equitable economic growth.
These three strategic objectives are interconnected and
mutually reinforcing, and they guide FAO's work in promoting sustainable
agriculture and rural development, reducing poverty and hunger, and ensuring access
to safe and nutritious food for all.
