Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The CIHEAM and the FAO have been collaborating on various projects since 1977. Their cooperation was strenghtened in the framework of an agreement signed at the UN agency’s headquarters in Rome on the 8 of January 2009. They agreed to intensify their collaboration in the fields of traditional food, protection of forests, modernisation of irrigation and plant disease management techniques and quarantine measures. 

On the 23 of October 2015, the FAO and the CIHEAM renewed their more than 35-year-old partnership and reaffirmed shared goals to enhance food security, nutrition and sustainable agricultural development in the Mediterranean region, especially through better sharing of ideas, experiences and analyses.
