FAO at 75 – Grow, nourish, sustain. Together

Global Food and Nutrition Security
To celebrate FAO’s 75th anniversary, a new publication chronicles the history of the Organization and shares its vision for the future. FAO at 75 – Grow, nourish, sustain. Together provides a snapshot of FAO’s achievements and aspirations seen through the lens of three quarter-centuries. Born in 1945 amid the idealism of post-war reconstruction, FAO set out with the goal of increasing farm output around the world and making famines a thing of the past. Over subsequent years, FAO’s approach to ending hunger and malnutrition acquired new environmental and sustainability dimensions. In 2020, innovation and digital transformation are defining the path ahead.
