The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Our goal is to achieve food security for all and ensure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With more than 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.

Welcome to the FAO mediabase digital photo library. This photographic collection houses images relating to FAO’s work around the globe in the fields of agriculture, fisheries, forestry, water and all aspects of food production and distribution. The images document the people we serve, the problems they face, the global issues that touch their lives, and the ways in which our technical experts are helping.

Images from the collection are available for editorial use once permission has been granted. Our team is on hand to help you if you have trouble finding what you need.
