FAO and AIG join forces to promote food security

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has partnered with the International Academy of Gastronomy (AIG) to fight hunger and poverty, focusing on food price volatility, sustainable food, biodiversity and neglected crops.

A Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two parties aims to safeguard regional and national culinary heritage, the FAO said.

“The two parties will establish channels of communication that will facilitate the identification of opportunities to jointly promote the study and the dissemination of knowledge regarding food, including best practices in the fields of nutrition and gastronomy, with the goal of achieving sustainable food and nutrition security and to bring an end to hunger and poverty in the world,” it said.
