    End poverty and hunger and secure the right to food
    Exchanging knowledge through South-South and Triangular Cooperation

    Knowledge sharing through South-South and Triangular Cooperation is a very powerful tool as it facilitates the exchange of lessons learnt and best practices among countries of the global south to help them end poverty and hunger. Learning from solutions that have worked elsewhere and adapting these experiences to local contexts, has been proven to be cost-effective, instead of “reinventing the wheel”. FAO views South-South and Triangular Cooperation as a broad framework for collaboration among developing countries that is rooted in the concept of solidarity that breaks the traditional dichotomy between donors and recipients. With this in mind, FAO is promoting the Knowledge Exchange Platforms on rural poverty reduction (KEPs), a tool to facilitate direct knowledge exchange among countries facing similar challenges, and foster mutual cooperation to meet SDG 1 and SDG 2 by 2030. Since the past biennium (2016-2017), FAO has created Knowledge Exchange Platforms (KEPs) in China, Ghana, Kenya and Senegal, whose policies and strategies have seen some progress in lifting the population out of poverty and hunger. Neighboring countries have also benefitted by learning from these experiences. The KEPs seek to improve countries’ capacities to design and implement solutions to reduce rural poverty and hunger, building on existing know-how available in other countries on sustainable and inclusive agricultural and rural transformations. The side-event aims to share successful experience on hunger and poverty eradication from the KEPs countries, including how multi-sectoral approaches, integrated policies and South-South and Triangular Cooperation can accelerate progress towards the achievement of these SDGs. It will include a photo exhibition outside the Sheikh Zayed Centre, with high-level participants from different Ministries, who will explain their champion programmes, strategies and/or initiatives being promoted with other countries through the KEPs. The event also seeks to engage member countries in a discussion on the strategies and policies needed as well as the challenges faced in achieving SDG 1 and SDG 2. Participants will also reflect on the role of South-South and Triangular Cooperation as a tool to assess, adapt and apply successful practices for poverty reduction at global scale.

    FAO's Quick Guide to South-South Cooperation 2015
    Also available in:

    Countries in the South offer a myriad of development solutions – knowledge, experiences, good practices, innovative policies, technologies, and resources – that have proven cost-effective and have huge potential to be up-scaled for the benefit of others. This Guide starts from the premise that South-South Cooperation (SSC) is playing a greater role than ever before in the international development landscape. Innovation in the South is generating new tools and partnerships for tackling issues of food insecurity, poverty and sustainable agriculture. In addition, Triangular Cooperation is a growing phenomenon, whereby a third party, usually an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) country or multilateral organization, provides resources to facilitate SSC. The aim of this Guide is to help you mobilize SSC as a complementary instrument to North-South Cooperation, as a means to deliver on FAO’s mandate and the broader post-2015 sustainable development agenda. It will also equip you with the tools required to raise the profile of countries engaged in SSC as well as encourage others that they have something to offer.

    Strengthening agricultural statistics and food security information in countries of the Coalition for African Rice Development (CARD) through South-South cooperation
    2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Agricultural statistics, particularly on rice production data, is essential for ensuring effective policy planning, implementation and monitoring of national policies on crops development. However, many countries still face challenges in developing capacities on agricultural statistics. The countries of the Coalition for African Rice Development (CARD) needed to overcome these challenges in order to set up their national rice development strategies. This project was designed as a response to the increasing demand for South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) on rice production statistics, as countries seek to build on the specific strengths and experiences of those who have progressed further in upscaling their anti-hunger programmes.
