    As embedded in its Constitution, FAO's mandate is to raise the level of nutrition and standard of living of the people, secure sustainable improvements in efficiency of production and distribution of food and agricultural products, improve the condition of the rural population, contribute to an expanding world economy and ensure humanity's sustainable freedom from hunger. In this context, the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific set out to translate FAO's strategic objectives into five r egional priority issues which are (a) strengthening food and nutritional security, (b) fostering agricultural production and rural development, (c) enhancing equitable, productive and sustainable natural resource management and utilization, (d) improving capacity to respond to food and agricultural threats and emergencies and (e) coping with the impact of climate change on food and agriculture. This publication sets out the regional priorities for the region in detail to 2019 and the implementat ion strategy for achieving the results.

    The product of a year-long effort, this document reiterates FAO’s global vision and mission in sustainable agriculture and food security, and articulates the elements of strategy that FAO and its member countries in Asia and the Pacific might adopt to realize them. Six thematic programme areas are identified to guide the Asia-Pacific region in national and collective actions towards achieving the World Food Summit target of halving the number of undernourished by 2015. These are: restructuring o f the agricultural sector; decentralizing governance in support of sustainable development; reducing vulnerability to disasters; promoting effective and equitable management, conservation and sustainable use of natural resources; strengthening biosecurity; and alleviating poverty in rice-based livelihood systems. Within each thematic area, the general rationale, goal, objectives, strategic elements, outcomes and impact indicators are given and an implementation strategy is outlined.
