The FAO's FAPDA (Food And Agriculture Policy Decision Analysis) tool was developed in 2011 with the support of the Government of the Kingdom of Spain to provide an on-line repository for food and agricultural policy decisions from around the world. The tool is part of the organization's Initiative on Soaring Food Prices (ISFP), which was intended to provide technical advice to FAO member countries to respond to the 2007-2008 global food security crisis.

The FAPDA is designed to serve a wide range of policy and agricultural stakeholders such as governments, development partners, regional economic organizations, civil society organizations, researchers, policymakers, and the private sector. The tool currently contains more than 9000 policy decisions gathered between 2008 and 2016. The tool classifies policy decisions based on the FAPDA Policy Classification, and each policy is properly verified and documented with the respective source of information.

The world is faced with challenges in all three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. For instance, more than 1 billion people are still living in extreme poverty, income inequality within and among many countries has been rising and, at the same time, unsustainable consumption levels and production patterns have resulted in huge economic and social costs and may endanger life on the planet.

The World Economic and Social Survey 2013 contributes to the deliberations on addressing sustainable development challenges with a focus on three important cross-sectoral issues identified for action and follow-up at the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development: sustainable cities, food security and energy transformation.
