Website On Activities Of UN Labour & Ag. Agencies

New website showcases joint activities of UN labour and agriculture agencies

6 June 2008 - Two United Nations agencies dealing with labour and agriculture today launched a new website designed to highlight the many areas in which they work together, including youth employment, safety and health and crisis management.

The website: "Food, Agriculture and Decent Work" (www.fao-ilo.org) describes the cooperation and activities of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 10 major fields and provides links to related information sources.

The site showcases work related to decent employment, child labour, youth employment, cooperatives, small and medium enterprises, rural workers, safety and health, crisis management, crops, fisheries and forestry, and labour statistics.

The ILO seeks to promote opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. The goal of FAO is to help reduce hunger and rural poverty through the sustainable development of agriculture, rural areas and their natural resources.

"Both organizations share a commitment to support people-centred, sustainable development and fair and inclusive globalization," according to a news release issued by ILO.

"A coordinated strategy is a critical option in order to complement and enhance the work currently being carried out by each organisation, respectively, on labour and agriculture and rural development and promote rural work," the agency added.
