FAO Strategy for Partnerships with the Private Sector

Publication Year: 2015 Publisher: FAO

Background

The fight against hunger can only be won in partnership with governments and other non-state actors, among which the private sector plays a fundamental role.

FAO is actively pursuing these partnerships to meet the Zero Hunger Challenge together with UN partners and other committed stakeholders. We are calling for bold actions and true global commitments to end hunger, make food systems sustainable, and minimize food waste and losses.

An exceptional level of collaboration between the public and private sectors will be needed to develop the initiatives necessary to transform agricultural production and meet future food and employment demands. Eradicating hunger is about joining forces to scale up successful programs and linking actions for better results.
