Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN
Since its founding in 1945, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has worked to promote food security and end hunger. FAO provides resources and expertise to member countries to aid research and development of agricultural and food systems. The organization serves as a neutral international forum for nations to discuss policy and negotiate agreements. A wealth of books, reports, newsletters and other digital media have been produced to meet the needs of these efforts.
Each month a million visitors consults the FAO website. Site users can investigate the agency's program areas, use the interactive Knowledge Forum or search various databases for statistical information, documents or links. Articles on important global food and agriculture issues can be found in the Newsroom as well as media resources - photos, audio, video and links.
