Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations: Corporate
Founded in 1945, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) works on four main areas that inform their mission: access to information, sharing policy expertise, meeting space for nations, and bringing knowledge to the field. Although they work in both developed and developing countries, as well as rural and urban areas, the FAO has concentrated their
efforts on rural areas, as that is where the majority of poor and hungry people reside.
