Projects + programmes

The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) maintains good bilateral relations with numerous countries. This takes place at various levels and is based on the idea of dialogue in partnership.

The fight against hunger is one of the Federal Government’s top priorities. Investment in agriculture in developing countries strengthens the purchasing power of the local population and makes a major contribution to realising the human right to food.

The BMEL provides 10 million euro annually to help finance food security projects launched by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
