    South-South and Triangular Cooperation. Revised edition 2015. 2014
    There is a growing consensus around the world, affirming South-South and Triangular Cooperation as effective instruments for catalyzing agricultural development. South-South Cooperation (SSC) is widely accepted as a complementary model of development cooperation to the traditional North- South model, in overcoming common challenges and achieving food security, poverty reduction and the sustainable management of natural resources. South-South Cooperation is the mutual sharing and exchange of key development solutions – knowledge, experiences and good practices, policies, technology, and resources – between and among countries in the global south. Triangular Cooperation (TrC) refers to partnerships between two or more developing countries in collaboration with a third partner, typically a developed country/traditional donor, emerging economy and/or multilateral organization to share key development solutions – knowledge, capacity, expertise, experiences and good practices, policies, tech nology and resources.

    More than 40 years ago, the first UN Conference on Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries, in Buenos Aires, laid important groundwork for South–South Cooperation, setting in motion a movement of reciprocal self-reliance that emphasizes developing countries collectively assisting one another. More recently, the Second High-level UN Conference on South–South Cooperation (known as BAPA+40, held in March 2019) highlighted the evolution of South–South Cooperation and its great potential for achieving development ambitions such as the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, and the African Union’s Agenda 2063.In the years between those landmark meetings, FAO has worked with a range of partners on successful South–South and Triangular Cooperation agreements to benefit Africa, including Brazil, China, the Republic of Korea, Morocco, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and Viet Nam.In the decade up to 2020, FAO also established and sustained two important trust funds for South–South Cooperation: the FAO–China Trust Fund (Phase II and III) and the FAO–Morocco Trust Fund.These Global South partners bring considerable knowledge and experience borne from decades of national development progress and international development assistance. Their cooperation embodies solidarity among peoples and countries of the Global South.Last update 04/10/2022

    As of 2019, FAO has approximately 40 South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) projects in more than 90 host countries. Moreover, different Trust Funds (TFs) have been established, partnering with countries such as Brazil, the People’s Democratic Republic of China, Japan, Mexico, Morocco and the Republic of Korea. FAO’s SSTC Gateway is a platform designed to facilitate knowledge and partnership brokering for SSTC in the agriculture and rural development sector. The platform comprises good practices, technical guidance documents, videos from the agriculture and agri-food sector, a SSTC expertise database and allows users to submit SSTC-related inquiries. This scale-up note is part of a series of SSTC scale-up notes, which provide insight into FAO's role in SSTC.
