Some examples of FAO projects

FAO sponsors projects in individual countries, in particular regions, and globally, for countries with common interests/concerns. Program content varies, but ranges from policy advice on food control systems and the development of GAP and HACCP quality assurance management systems along the chain, to upgrading, equipping and making accreditation of laboratories possible and providing critical training for those working throughout the food chain in both the public and the private sector. In addition, direct support is provided through emergency projects with consultants and policy advice on urgent situations such as the aflatoxico-sis outbreak in Kenya. Horizontal projects also study the social and economic impacts of the application of sanitary and phytosanitary SPS measures on rejection of food products due to mycotoxin levels. Project sustainability is ensured by: (i) identification of country needs and development of feedback mechanisms, (ii) monitoring of progress towards project objectives and anticipated outputs, (iii) commitment to project follow-up at the national level, and (iv) inclusion of project activities complementary to other development activities in the country.
