    Iran became a member of FAO on December 01, 1953. The Organization is physically present in Iran through its Representation Office which was reopened in 1992 after Islamic Revolution in 1979. According to the Agreement signed between FAO Director General, Dr. Eduard Saouma and former Minister for Agriculture, Dr. Issa Kalantari in November 1991, the Ministry has since provided the premises, hosting FAO Representation office in its main building. The major thrust of FAO’s technical assistance to Iran has been in the areas of: capacity building, policy and strategy development, crop production, livestock and animal health, fisheries and forest management, and, emergency and rehabilitation programme. A summary is given under section B below. Based on the review of the major FAO projects implemented in Iran in early 2007, it was concluded that in general most of the projects requested and implemented were on ad-hoc basis, therefore failing to create a visible impact on the agriculture. As a result, preparation of National Medium Term Priority Framework (NMTPF) was initiated. In 2010, following the extension of both UNDAF and National Development Plan by one year, FAO decided to update the draft NMTPF and prepare a new Country Programming Framework – CPF document. More details follow under Section B below. In line with the Government priorities for sustainable agriculture and rural development, the future assistance of FAO in the medium-term, is intended to focus, inter alia, on f ully harnessing the potential for: enhanced investment at the value-chain level to increase rural income and employment, agribusiness and commercialization of agriculture including horticulture exports, and full integration of poor and small farmers in the commercialization and agri-business development.

    FAO implemented projects in Lebanon since 1960, mainly through UNDP projects till 1993. An MOU was signed with the GOL on February 7, 1977 to open an FAO representation office in Lebanon. It was signed by the Lebanese Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Fouad Boutros and the FAO Director General, Mr. Edouard Saouma. It became effective June 14, 1977. In 1977, after the war of “two years”, most of the International Agencies were leaving or considering leaving the country. FAO was the only Interna tional Organization that remained in the country for the whole period of the civil war. The office and staff of the FAO were suffering similarly to all Lebanese, electricity cut, bad communication facilities, hazards of moving and displacement. The office was moved from Beirut to a safer place in the suburbs, Baabda, in 1979. FAO played a crucial role during the civil war. The interventions were on the institutional level and on the humanitarian level, without neglecting the technical assistance projects whenever the security situation in Lebanon allowed.
