Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

In 1997, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), established in 1945 as the lead agency in the UN system for agriculture, forestry, fisheries and rural development, continued to work towards the achievement of 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. In order 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, whether caused by man-made or natural disasters, and brought food insecurity and nutrition problems to world attention through conferences, meetings and information campaigns.
