FAO’s Strategic Framework

FAO CONFERENCE
A sustainable and food secure world for all

A world facing escalating threats demands that we act without delay to safeguard life, transform our agri-food systems to future-proof our planet and lock in sustainable outcomes. 

FAO's Strategic Framework articulates FAO’s vision of a sustainable and food secure world for all, in the context of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

What is FAO’s Strategic Framework?

Since 2010 all of FAO’s work is guided by a Strategic Framework prepared for a period of ten to fifteen years, reviewed every four years. 

The Strategic Framework 2022-2031 was developed in the context of major global and regional challenges in the areas of FAO's mandate, including the COVID-19 pandemic. It was developed through an inclusive, transparent process involving extensive internal and external consultations, Governing Body meetings and informal consultations. It was endorsed at the 42nd session of the FAO Conference on 18 June 2021.

The four betters and leaving no one behind

FAO's Strategic Framework seeks to support the 2030 Agenda through the transformation to MORE efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems for better productionbetter nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, leaving no one behind.

Better production

Better production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns, through efficient and inclusive food and agriculture supply chains at local, regional and global level, ensuring resilient and sustainable agri-food systems in a changing climate and environment.

Programme Priority Areas:
Innovation for sustainable agriculture production / Blue transformation / One Health / Small-scale producers’ equitable access to resources

Better nutrition

Better nutrition

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition in all its forms, including promoting nutritious food and increasing access to healthy diets.

Programme Priority Areas:
Healthy diets for all / Nutrition for the most vulnerable / Safe food for everyone / Reducing food loss and waste / Transparent markets and trade

Better environment

Better environment

Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial and marine ecosystems and combat climate change (reduce, reuse, recycle, residual management) through more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems.

Programme Priority Areas:
Climate change mitigating and adapted agri-food systems / Bioeconomy for sustainable food and agriculture / Biodiversity and ecosystem services for food and agriculture

Better life

Better life

Promote inclusive economic growth by reducing inequalities (urban/rural areas, rich/poor countries, men/women).

Programme Priority Areas:
Gender equality and rural women’s empowerment / Inclusive rural transformation / Achieving sustainable urban food systems / Agriculture and food emergencies / Resilient agri-food systems / Hand-in-Hand (HIH) Initiative / Scaling up investment

The four betters represent an organising principle for how FAO intends to contribute directly to SDG 1 (No poverty), SDG 2 (Zero hunger), and SDG 10 (Reduced inequalities) as well as to supporting achievement of the broader SDG agenda, which is crucial for attaining FAO’s overall vision.  

The four betters reflect the interconnected economic, social and environmental dimensions of agri-food systems. They also encourage a strategic and systems-oriented approach within all FAO’s interventions.

FAO will also apply four cross-cutting/cross-sectional “accelerators”: (i) technology, (ii) innovation, (iii) data, and (iv) complements (governance, human capital, and institutions) in all its programmatic interventions to accelerate impact while minimizing trade-offs.

A reinvigorated business model fit for purpose

The Strategic Framework also highlights the importance of a shift in FAO’s working paradigm. FAO’s reinvigorated, fit-for-purpose business model aims to ensure an inclusive and agile Organization that is transparent, open, innovative, responsible, effective and impactful to ensure the transformational change that is called for.
