Malta’s partnership with FAO dates back to 1964, the year the country joined the Organization. Cooperation through emergency interventions in the 1970s enabled Malta’s successful eradication of African swine fever. Water management has been another major area of FAO assistance – and one of strategic importance – in the country, with action focusing on sustainable management of Malta’s water resources and development of a national water policy. Today Malta cooperates actively in fisheries and aquaculture development as well as sustainable forest management – particularly in the Mediterranean and European region.
