1948 United Nations FAO (Food and
Agriculture Organization) Conference
The 1948 regional conference of FAO
was held in Baguio City from February 3 to March 17, 1948.
FAO (Food and Agriculture
Organization) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN).
Its main objectives are: to
raise levels and standards of nutrition and living globally;
to secure improvements in the
efficiency of the production and distribution of all food and
agricultural products, including sound management and sustainable
utilisation of national resources; and, to better the condition of
rural populations. It
would, in this way, contribute towards an expanding world economy
and ensure humanity's freedom from hunger.
