The U.S. Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome works with international organizations to promote sustainable agricultural development and combat hunger in the world. We serve as a link between the U.S. government and the United Nations food, rule of law and cultural heritage agencies headquartered in Rome. The Mission is formed of representatives of the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) who engage with all countries represented at Rome's UN Agencies. To reach our goal of ending global hunger and food insecurity, we focus on emergency food aid, agricultural development, and food safety standards, as well as fisheries, forests, and financing for rural development. As the largest contributor to the UN system worldwide, the United States also strives to ensure that the UN organizations are both efficient and effective, and that their activities support U.S. national and foreign policy objectives.
