Committees > About FAO / CIRAD

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is developing extensive knowledge on GIs and provides guidance and technical assistance to countries in protecting their GIs as a tool to contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture and food systems for reaching the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Center for International Cooperation in Agricultural Research for Development (CIRAD) conducts research, organizes training and provides technical assistance on GIs in Africa, Asia and South America, regarding the setting up of the legal and institutional framework, the product identification and selection, the drafting of GI specifications, the role of collective producers organizations, control mechanisms, the market access, or the impacts assessment.
