    Stratégie et vision de la FAO pour ses activités en matière de nutrition 2014
    La Stratégie et vision de la FAO pour ses activités en matière de nutrition a été élaborée en réponse à l’Évaluation du rôle et des activités de la FAO dans le domaine de la nutrition, réalisée en 2011. La Stratégie a été formulée conformément à l’approche approuvée par le Conseil, laquelle prévoyait notamment l’organisation d’une série d’ateliers internes auxquels a pris part l’équipe chargée de l’élaboration de la Stratégie, composée d’agents techniques de plusieurs divisions. Ont également ét é associés à l’élaboration de la Stratégie: un groupe de travail interne plus important regroupant des fonctionnaires de la FAO, qui a été régulièrement informé et consulté tout au long du processus; la Direction de la FAO et les principaux partenaires de l’Organisation, parmi lesquels des membres du Groupe consultatif pour la recherche agricole internationale (GCRAI), des institutions des Nations Unies et des organisations non gouvernementales; et plusieurs États membres représentatifs de toute s les régions, qui ont participé à des consultations informelles. La Stratégie a pour objectif de recentrer l’action de la FAO dans le domaine de la nutrition sur des priorités clairement définies, et d’affirmer le rôle de chef de file que doit jouer l’Organisation en la matière, en fédérant les parties prenantes concernées, en recueillant et en diffusant les connaissances nécessaires à la définition des engagements politiques et à l’orientation des interventions, et en renforçant les capacités des pays et des autres partenaires concernés à agir de manière efficace.

    The Asia and the Pacific Regional High Level Consultation on Gender, Food Security and Nutrition co-organized by ADB, FAO, and WOCAN was convened to advance ongoing efforts to promote gender equality as an effective strategy to achieve food security and nutrition in the Asia-Pacific region. It was the first regional high-level consultation focusing on the linkages between gender, food security and nutrition issues. The consultation was an opportunity to raise awareness on the gender dimensions o f food and nutrition insecurity and their implications for rural poverty, agricultural productivity and national development in Asia and the Pacific. The ADB and FAO publication ‘Gender Equality and Food Security – Women’s Empowerment as a Tool Against Hunger’, authored by Prof. Olivier de Schutter, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food was launched on the first day of the event, and served to anchor the discussions around the pressing challenges of gender discrimination in the Asia-Pac ific region that are serious impediments to achieving food security and nutrition. The consultation was attended by key stakeholders, including leading representatives of the Member countries, non-governmental organizations (NGOs)/civil society organizations (CSOs), and women leaders of rural communities/institutions from seventeen countries around the Asia-Pacific region. The event was designed to facilitate a multi-stakeholder dialogue on strategic efforts to enhance gender responsive food and nutrition security interventions between the latter, United Nations and other development organizations, research institutions and the private sector. The event ensured a highly engaged exchange on good practices and lessons learned in this regard, and led to agreements on follow-up measures that would advance gender equity and women’s empowerment. There was general agreement on four critical approaches that would contribute to the overall goals of gender-responsive food and nutrition security outcomes: i) the importance of relying on human-rights based approaches; ii) the advantages of working in collaboration across the region through partnerships; iii) the crucial role of inclusivity of rural women, including indigenous women and marginalized and vulnerable groups through their organizations and networks in the design, development and implementation of gender equality and rural development programs and strategies; and iv) the importance of male involvement in gender transformative process to ensure the sustainability of future action in this regard. The participants identified and agreed to undertake follow-up actions in their respective countries to close the gender gap in agriculture and empower women so they could fully contribute to improve food and nutrition security in the region along key actions identified in the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 66-129, on the Improvement of the Situation of Women in Rural Areas.

    FAO competency framework 2014
    Also available in:

    The FAO competency framework consists of three main elements: our values which are three shared principles and beliefs that unite all employees; five core competencies apply to all of us; a parallel set of six leadership competencies apply to senior managers. Competencies are demonstrated behaviours of a person that facilitate effective performance of work tasks. It’s not just about what we do, but how we do it. The framework has emerged from extensive consultations with employees fr om across the organization. Focus groups of all levels and grades, a survey, meetings with staff representatives, and consultations among human resource managers were undertaken, involving colleagues at country, subregional, regional and headquarters levels. Over time, the framework will be reviewed to ensure that it continues to reflect the needs of FAO.
