"Better boats and gear emable / fishermen to catch more fish / FAO towards freedom from hunger"

Black and white poster produced for the Freedom From Hunger Campaign, an informational initiative launched by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1960. The FFHC aimed to raise awareness of inefficient agricultural practices used around the world (particularly in developing countries) and improve them via new techniques and technology to reduce global hunger. This is one of a series of posters depicting agricultural practice and industries in various parts of the world.

This series of posters included an image of inefficient agricultural practices on the left, and an improved version of the same practice on the right. This poster features a comparison of a small, traditionally-constructed boat with one crew member versus multiple larger Western fishing vessels with many crew members. FAO logo and slogan at the bottom left corner.

Condition: Please note minor creasing at top right and bottom edge.

Material: Paper
