Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was set up on Oct. 16, 1945, aiming at guaranteeing the living standards of people around the world, improving the efficiency of production and distribution of all food and agricultural products, improving the lives of rural population, promoting the development of rural economy and ultimately eradicating hunger and poverty.

This year’s Beijing International Model United Nations will mainly focus on the challenges and future of the actions the UN takes to eliminate hunger and poverty during a new period. The ratification of the Paris Agreement in Dec. 2015 marked the formation of a new response framework to climate changes, and the initiation of the investment to FAO “zero hunger” project further proves UN’s resolution to reduce hunger and poverty. Delegates, under this structure, will together solve the hunger problems, food potential security hazards existing in the FAO projects and current international community, as well as to set proposals for improvement of the Green Food Movement and initiatives related to sustainable development.

FAO Committee implements single delegate system and the European rules of procedure which are more expected for the comparison of multi-dimensional and broad-breadth proposals. Welcome to join us in the Food and Agriculture Organization Committee of Beijing International Model United Nations 2017 with your contribution to the eradication of hunger and poverty!
