Toelichting (Engels) This report is an FAO corporate effort that builds on contributions from all of FAO’s Technical Departments. A preliminary version of this report was prepared as a study for the Strategic Thinking Process underpinning FAO’s Medium-Term Plan 2018–2021, whose objectives are to review FAO’s strategic framework in the light of recent global challenges facing the Organization’s Member Nations and the international community. The FAO Strategic Experts Panel, comprising Alain de Janvry, Ismahane Elouafy, Shenggen Fan, Gustavo Gordillo, Marion Guillou, Mulu Ketsela and Martin Piñeiro, provided comments and guidance for improving the initial assessment. The panel described the document as ‘an example of FAO’s extraordinary capacities to mobilize information and knowledge’ and recommended that it be made public.
