    Social protection is the set of policies and programmes aimed at preventing or protecting all people against poverty, vulnerability, and social exclusion throughout their lifecycles, particularly the most vulnerable groups. This poster will serve to demonstrate the efforts - and advancements made - in reducing rural poverty and increasing resilience through FAO strategic programmes, such as SP3 and SP5 in recent years. It aims to provide to donors, partners, and policy-makers with the information they need to gain awareness of the impacts of social protection initiatives, and to invest in social protection as a valid pathway out of poverty and hunger. The expected results of this product is an increase awareness of the benefits of social protection initiatives, an increase in visibility of countries' progress in areas pertaining to food insecurity and nutrition and act as springboard to more funding opportunities. This poster will hopefully be part of a series of posters put on display during the FAO Council following a side event in the Sheikh Zayed Centre on 4 June, 2018 called "Scaling-up Social Protection: Achieving Rural Development and Resilience for All FAO Council Side Event".

    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.
