Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

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.
