    Inspiration, inclusion and innovation: FAO–China South–South Cooperation Programme (2009-2019) 2019
    Also available in:

    The People’s Republic of China (China) has been one of FAO’s main partners in the promotion of South-South and triangular cooperation. In terms of cooperation among developing countries, China upholds the principles of equality and mutual trust, building equal partnerships with parity of ownership and responsibility, mutual benefit and win–win cooperation, which are highly valued by FAO. Together, FAO and China offer considerable development knowledge and solutions that are relevant to South-South exchanges. After more than two decades of increasing collaboration in supporting flows of technical assistance between developing countries, FAO and China established in 2009 the FAO-China South-South Cooperation Programme, supported by a Chinese Trust Fund of USD 80 million. This brochure reviews the Programme’s activities and achievements over the last ten years, lessons learned and prospects for the way forward. It highlights and illustrates the Programme’s distinctive features, particularly its inspiring, inclusive and innovative modalities of cooperation. Its multi-stakeholder approach brings together farmers’ cooperatives and associations, the private sector, academia and triangular partners, among other key actors. In this context, the Programme provides a platform for insights and perspectives of all development actors through its national, regional, interregional and global projects focusing on sustainable agricultural production, productivity and farmers’ livelihoods. The Programme is majorly contributing to the realization of Sustainable Development Goal 1: No poverty in all its forms everywhere; and Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

    FAO’s work on South–South and Triangular Cooperation in sub-Saharan Africa
    Exchanging rice-farming knowledge and technology for food security
    2022
    Also available in:

    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
