A successful sustainable development agenda requires strong global partnerships and cooperation between governments, the private sector, civil society and academia. The “FAO Award for Partnership” was established to recognise outstanding cooperation with FAO in advancing the Organization’s work by Members, other UN agencies or international institutions, academic or research entities; and civil society or private sector entities, including media outlets that have made a significant contribution to the improvement of global food security.

The winning institution/organization should be one that can demonstrate how it has in an area related to FAO’s mandate:

  • engaged local communities and relevant stakeholders with the aim to improve people’s lives responding to their needs and rights and enhancing efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • raised visibility of the problem of hunger and malnutrition, communicating complex agricultural and economic issues to the wider public, and promoted successful solutions and projects for improved food security and nutrition;
  • presented an innovative idea, a new approach, or a unique policy that was implemented successfully and is adaptable to other contexts inspiring similar innovations within a given city, country, region or at the global level
  • developed an initiative that demonstrates evidence of impact in improving peoples lives ; and/or
  • advocated successfully the value of policies and principles that FAO prioritizes.

Particular emphasis will be given to the human value involved in the achievements of the programme, i.e. the way these programmes have contributed in an integrated manner to enhance the livelihood, social inclusion and dignity of the poorest and most malnourished groups of a given population.
