FAO’s new open data policy makes fact-finding and information-sharing easier

Do you see the world in numbers? Do you study charts like an art lover studies Renoir? Do you love statistics in all its forms? Well, FAO does too! When it comes to food and agriculture data, FAO is one of the world leaders in knowledge. Subject experts and in-house statisticians work day in and day out to collect, validate and disseminate data and information on food and agriculture, from hunger, malnutrition and rural poverty to food systems and the sustainable use of natural resources. The goal? To help governments make the right decisions about programmes, policies and investments and to help individuals further their scientific research on important topics that affect the planet.


FAO has many different statistical databases on topics as wide-ranging as agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture, forestry, food prices and market information, economic, social and rural development, nutrition, natural, genetic and biodiversity resources and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  It is, in fact, a large part of FAO’s mandate to collect, analyse, interpret and disseminate all types of information related to food, agriculture and the sustainable management of natural resources.


Knowledge is meant to be shared, and FAO has always encouraged the use of our data to inform humanitarian work or enhance scientific advancement. However, now that we have adopted an open data licensing policy, it is even easier for researchers, journalists, scholars, humanitarian workers or students to access, download, copy and employ these data sets for free and for redistribution.
