Jamaica joined FAO in 1963. In 1978, the Organization established a representation in Jamaica which today also covers

the Bahamas and Belize. Over the years, FAO has partnered with Jamaica to achieve sustainable agricultural and rural

development, mainly through the Organization’s Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP). Interventions have ranged from

policy formulation to technical agricultural development and emergency assistance projects. Recent cooperation has placed

a strong focus on food security and nutrition, targeting rural, peri-urban and urban populations. Jamaica hosted and chaired

the 35th FAO Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean (5-8 March 2018, Montego Bay) (LARC). The

Chairperson of the 35th Session of the LARC was invited to present the Report of the Regional Conference on programme

and budget matters to the FAO Council (4-8 June 2018).
