UN - FOOD & AGRICULTURE ORGANIZATION
ARE PLANET EARTH'S POLICIES WORKING? - If they were, we'd not have plastic poisoning the marine environment, or global warming. The problem is world leaders rely too much on fossil fuels and do not want to rock the boat until there is a solid backup plan, but the backup plan involves change. And that frightens them to stay put even though the water is already bubbling.
Their goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.
With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. They believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.
Key policy messages
The United Nations is and international organization representing most countries around the world. They set policies and agendas for and by every member nations, the latest of which is their Sustainability Development Goals or SDGs.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030. Click on any specific Goal below to learn more about each issue.
There is little point having such objectives if member nations only pay lip service to the aims. That is why it is important for local groups to keep a watchful eye open for malpractices that have become institutionalised.
What happens on your doorstep is what is happening all over the world. Every country is empire building over fishing (indirectly with pirates) and dumping waste in the oceans in the belief that a little bit more indulgence won't matter. Yes it will!!
