Achieving food security for all is at the heart of FAO's efforts - to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.
FAO's mandate is to raise levels of nutrition, improve agricultural productivity, better the lives of rural populations and contribute to the growth of the world economy.
Climate change and gender issues cut across all of the work of FAO. Working with farmers and policymakers, FAO aims to ensure that climate-smart practices clearly recognize and address the different needs of men and women, in order to make a clear contribution to reducing food insecurity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the adaptability of farming systems.
