International Regulatory Co-operation

The Role of International Organisations in Fostering Better Rules of Globalisation

image of International Regulatory Co-operation

Borders are becoming increasingly porous, with growing flows of goods, services, people and capital. Governments, more than ever, need to co-ordinate their efforts to develop global standards to address climate change, as well as crises related to finance, health, environment and migration; secure peace; and ensure sustainable economic prosperity and social inclusion. International organisations play a key role in fostering multilateral action and addressing the fragmentation that may undermine effective domestic action. To shed greater light on international standard setting, this unique report collects, compares and assesses the practices of 50 international organisations on their governance arrangements, operational modalities, use of quality management disciplines and co-operation efforts. It analyses different types of organisations – inter-governmental, supra-national, trans-governmental and private – and identifies avenues for making their action more effective, inclusive and relevant.




Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

The mandate of FAO is raising levels of nutrition and standards of living of the peoples under their respective jurisdictions, securing improvements in the efficiency of the production and distribution of all food and agricultural products, and bettering the condition of rural populations, and thus contributing toward an expanding world economy. In order to fulfil its mandate, FAO’s activities are driven by the following five strategic objectives: 1) Help eliminate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; 2) make agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable; 3) reduce rural poverty; 4) enable inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems; and 5) increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises.
