Hide / Show Abstract

In 1989, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) continued to assist farmers, fishermen and foresters to improve their standards of living and produce more foods using techniques that did not degrade the environment. Established in 1945 to raise levels of nutrition, improve agricultural productivity and better the condition of the rural poor, FAO’S main objective remained the achievement of global food security, where everyone would have access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. The organization also continued to monitor food supply conditions world wide and provide emergency relief.
