    Project
    Establishing a Programme Coordination Unit in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - UTF/SAU/036/SAU 2022
    Also available in:

    This Programme was designed to support technical cooperation between FAO and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Building upon years of successful collaboration, the Programme was larger in scope than previously implemented projects. It was developed to assist the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) in contributing towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by supporting its strategic objectives and priorities for sustainable agriculture and rural development, which was to be done through the formulation and implementation of several technical assistance projects. Because of its scope, the establishment of a Programme Coordination Unit (PCU) in Riyadh was required. Owing to the launch of the Saudi Vision 2030 and its related development programmes , the planning model and system in the country changed significantly during the period of implementation. In addition, the MoA evolved into the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA). For this reason, the programme was adapted so that it could align with the transformation of the development process that was taking place in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
