Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations organisations in Rome

We are happy to announce that the Permanent Representation of Switzerland to FAO, IFAD and WFP has changed its official name to Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations organisations in Rome. The new name better reflects the scope of our activities and the systemic approach taken by Switzerland vis-à-vis the three main UN organisations in Rome, namely: the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP), its governing bodies, as well as the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and all other UN organisations in Rome. 

The new name better reflects the horizon of our current and future activities, which include the launch of the Bites of Transfoodmation project in collaboration with the Swiss Embassy in Rome, Istituto Svizzero, Présence Suisse, Università della Svizzera Italiana and other key partners. Bites of Transfoodmation brings together a unique group of young, motivated individuals to elaborate a shared vision for a more sustainable and resilient future of food systems.
