Hide / Show Abstract

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the lead agency in the UN system for agriculture, forestry, fisheries and rural development, continued efforts to achieve global food security in a sustainable manner by raising levels of nutrition and standards of living, improving agricultural productivity and advancing the condition of rural populations. As part of its work to improve food security, FAO executed projects that helped rural women gain access to land, credit and training. It also provided early warning of potential food shortages, and brought food insecurity and nutrition issues to world attention.
