FAO and Sustainable Development Goals

FAO and the 2030 Agenda

The 2030 Agenda offers a vision for food and agriculture as key to sustainable development. FAO possesses experience and expertise in supporting policymaking, partnership-building, and projects and programmes built on 3-dimensional sustainability. Both the SDGs and FAO's strategic framework are geared towards tackling the root causes of poverty and hunger, building a fairer society and leaving no one behind.

The SDGs build on the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but they also represent a shift in the world’s vision and approach to development. They are:
  • Universal – the 2030 Agenda is as relevant to developed as it is to developing nations
  • Indivisible – no one goal is separate from the others, and all call for comprehensive and participatory approaches.
  • Sustainable, integrating the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental
  • Ambitious, aiming at ending poverty and hunger while sustainably managing natural resources.
