Food and Agriculture Organization
FAO works with its Member Countries and partners to facilitate global dialogue, mobilize environmental and climate finance, and lead advocacy and actions to promote sustainable agriculture and food security within the global sustainability agenda. It also works with other organizations in many countries to foster transparency in the agriculture and land use sectors through technical and institutional capacity-building. Training, public awareness, knowledge sharing and cooperation, and enhancing access to information for all guide the work of the FAO, which are closely linked to the ACE elements. The FAO Transparency Team also works closely with the UNFCCC constituted bodies and relevant processes to boost the reach and impact of its capacity-building efforts, including with regards to youth.
