FAO's mandate is to support members in their efforts to ensure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food. FAO can help by supporting policies and political commitments that promote food security and good nutrition and by making sure that up-to-date information about hunger and malnutrition challenges and solutions is available and accessible.
The main FAO's goals are:
1. the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition;
2. the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all;
3. the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.The use of high-resolution satellite images and sample aerial photographs is part of FAO's activities to develop land-inventory studies and keep track of forest changes worldwide.
