The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO acts as a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy. FAO is also a source of knowledge and information. We help developing countries and countries in transition modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices and ensure good nutrition for all. Since our founding in 1945, we have focused special attention on developing rural areas, home to 70 percent of the world's poor and hungry people.

Los bosques y los árboles respaldan la agricultura sostenible. Estabilizan los suelos y el clima, regulan los flujos de agua, ofrecen sombra y refugio y proporcionan un hábitat a los polinizadores y los depredadores naturales de plagas agrícolas. Asimismo, contribuyen a la seguridad alimentaria de cientos de millones de personas, para quienes constituyen fuentes importantes de alimentos, energía e ingresos. Sin embargo, la agricultura sigue siendo el principal factor de la deforestación a nivel mundial y, a menudo, las políticas agrícolas, forestales y de tierras no casan.

FAO’s programme in India is primarily guided by GOI priorities and further shaped by FAO’s corporate priorities that play a catalytic role in supporting India to: (i) reduce rural poverty; (ii) promote inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems; (iii) eradicate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; (iv) provide goods and services from agriculture, forestry, and fisheries in a sustainable manner; (v) increase resilience; and (vi) provision of global goods. In doing so, FAO will also address cross-cutting issues such as gender and climate change.
