The European Union and FAO Partnership

The EU-FAO Improved Global Governance for Hunger Reduction Programme improves the way in which the global community works together to eradicate hunger and malnutrition. It is linking the EU development agenda with FAO's key strategic objectives on food security and nutrition. The programme is helping to strengthen governance food secutiry and nutrition by supporting the 'renewal' of the global Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and linking it with other global processes such as the 2nd International Conference on Nurition. It engages with a very wide range of partners and actively supports and works with regional organizations (...) The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGTs) are an excellent example of how the CFS has helped countries adopt consensual policy guidance which is subsequently being translated into concrete actions at the country level.
