The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO acts as a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy. FAO is also a source of knowledge and information. We help developing countries and countries in transition modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices and ensure good nutrition for all. Since our founding in 1945, we have focused special attention on developing rural areas, home to 70 percent of the world's poor and hungry people.

El mundo se comprometió a erradicar la extrema pobreza y el hambre en 2030, llevándolo de regreso a una vía sostenible. El cambio climático amenaza con revertir el progreso que hemos logrado hasta ahora en la lucha contra el hambre y la pobreza. De no controlarse, podría poner en peligro la capacidad de los sistemas alimentarios para asegurar la seguridad alimentaria mundial. El cambio climático está socavando los medios de subsistencia y la seguridad alimentaria de las poblaciones rurales pobres.
