FAO Lists 20 Tools for Transforming Food and Agriculture to Achieve SDGsJune 13, 2018
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has released a set of 20 inter-connected actions designed to show the impact that sustainable agriculture can have on tackling the world's greatest challenges.
Transforming food and agriculture to achieve the SDGs is a practical guide for countries on strengthening food security, generating decent employment, spurring rural development and economic growth, conserving natural resources, and responding to climate change. The publication is essentially a tool that offers how-to pointers to expedite actual implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 20 inter-connected actions can help map strategies to achieve Zero Hunger and the SDGs related to food and agriculture, including fostering more resilient livelihoods and higher productivity and incomes for rural smallholders. Each action is graphically identified with its contribution to SDG goals and reflect insights from FAO's technical expertise.
