It helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. UNDP focuses in three main areas; sustainable development, democratic governance and peacebuilding and climate and disaster resilience. In all their activities, they encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.

Achieving food security for all is at the heart of FAO’s efforts. Three main goals are; the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all; and, the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
