They provide up-to-date information on 30 of the 50 priority countries of the European Commission’s Food Security Thematic Program (FSTP). The FSTP aims at addressing the structural causes of food insecurity by placing agriculture at the heart of the international debate on development.

The EC- FAO Food Security Information for Decision Making Programme is funded by the European Union and implemented by FAO. It aims at improving the quantity and quality of food security information and analysis; and promoting its use in decision making at all levels.
