FAO’s mission ─in fulfillment of the purpose for which it was established (Preamble to the Constitution) and in full respect of its mandate (Article 1 of the Constitution)─ is to help build a food-secure world for present and future generations.
The organization’s vision of success is to remain fully responsive to the ideals and requirements of its Members, and to be recognized for leadership and partnership in helping to build a food-secure world.
It is possible to define three interrelated global goals that the organization is specifically dedicated to helping Members achieve:
1) Access of all people at all times to sufficient, nutritionally-adequate and safe food, ensuring that the number of chronically undernourished people is reduced by half by no later than 2015.
2) The continued contribution of sustainable agriculture and rural development, including fisheries and forestry, to economic and social progress and the well-being of all.
3) The conservation, improvement and sustainable utilization of natural resources, including land, water, forest, fisheries and genetic resources for food and agriculture.
