    FAO Strategy for Partnerships with Civil Society Organizations 2013
    FAO has been working for many years with hundreds of civil society organizations (NGOs, community-based organizations, professional associations, networks, etc.) in technical work, emergency field operations, training and capacity building, and advocacy of best agricultural practices. Over the past years, civil society organizations (CSOs) have evolved in terms of coordination, structure, outreach, mobilization and advocacy capacity. In this period, FAO has also undergone changes i n management, revised its Strategic Framework and given a new impetus to decentralization. Therefore, a review of the existing 1999 FAO Policy and Strategy for Cooperation with Non-Governmental and Civil Society Organizations was needed. The FAO Strategy for Partnerships with Civil Society considers civil society as those non-state actors that work in the areas related to FAO’s mandate. It does not address partnerships with academia, research institutions or philanthropic found ations, as they will be treated in other FAO documents. Food producers’ organizations, given their specific nature and relevance in relation to FAO’s mandate, will be considered separately. In principle, as they usually are for-profit, they will fall under the FAO Strategy for Partnerships with the Private Sector, unless these organizations state otherwise and comply with the criteria for CSOs. These cases will be addressed individually. The Strategy identifies six areas of colla boration and two levels of interaction with different rationales and modus operandi: global-headquarters and decentralized (regional, national, local). The main focus of this Strategy is in working with civil society at th e decentralized level. In its Reviewed Strategic Framework, FAO has defined five Strategic Objectives to eradicate poverty and food insecurity. To achieve this, the Organization is seeking to expand its collaboration with CSOs committed to these objectives.

    Also available in:

    This note is meant to serve as a guide on how to ensure balanced representation of Civil Society organizations in FAO activities or processes. Balanced representativeness of Civil society has four main components that need to be ensured and looked at, these are: constituencies, geography, gender and groups. By ensuring that these four components are taken into account during relevant discussions, FAO will ensure that whether from meetings or processes, the results are truly representative of the relevant groups making up a society.
