A representative of the UAE embassy in Rome attended the Informal Joint Meeting of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) Council, IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development) Executive Board and WFP (World Food Programme) Executive Board, here on Friday.

The meeting came within the context of the UN reform to promote a more effective and efficient UN system, and enhance collaboration between the Rome-Based Agencies (RBAs) � FAO, IFAD and WFP� which is of particular significance in achieving the objectives of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The broader aim of such meetings is to exchange insights and discuss issues of common concern to the three organisations.
