WORLD FOR WORLD ORGANIZATION (WFWO) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). Italian-based non-profit organization, operating in Italy and internationally, WFWO was launched on 16 October 2001, on the occasion of World Food Day, and established in 2002 under Italian law, though it enjoys unique legal status and recognition by Italian government, and is in Special Consultative Status with ECOSOC–DESA-UN NGO Section at the United Nations-New York (USA). ECOSOC is the Principal Organ to Coordinate the Economic and Social Council work of the United Nations and the Specialized Agencies and International Institutions.
The WFWO’s operations and structures are guided by the Framework Strategy Plan Document issued by the Interim Board Directors and founder and negotiating body which met in Rome in the fall of 2002 and amended to establish the operating structure and principles of the WFWO.
The primary governance policies and procedures of the WFWO are set out in its Bylaws and Executive Board Directors Operating Procedures available below in English. Other governance policies and procedures are set out in specific Board Decisions and Board-approved policies. The most important of these policies and guidelines is available on WFWO’s website.
