The overall goal of the "Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System" (GIAHS) initiative by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) is to identify and safeguard eco-friendly traditional farm practices and their associated landscapes, agricultural biodiversity, and knowledge systems of local communities. The initiative aims to recognize and support agricultural systems that have significant cultural, social, economic, and environmental importance.

Option 1, which suggests providing modern technology, training, and financial support to enhance agricultural productivity, is not the primary goal of the GIAHS initiative. While some support may be provided, the primary focus is on preserving traditional practices rather than modernizing them.

Option 3, which mentions providing Geographical Indication status to agricultural produce, is not directly related to the GIAHS initiative. Geographical Indication (GI) status is a separate concept that aims to protect the names and reputation of products originating from specific geographical locations.
