    Strengthening Resource Mobilization Strategies to Eradicate Hunger and Malnutrition, and to Foster Sustainable Rural Development and Climate-Resilient Agriculture - TCP/RLA/3718 2022
    Also available in:

    For more than 25 years, official development assistance ( has been distributed on the basis of a classification of countries by income Developed by the World Bank, this establishes a graduation system which places countries in high, upper middle, lower middle and low income categories While this methodology certainly provides highly useful information and data for macro economic analysis, it provides an average figure and therefore fails to highlight inequalities within the countries The Latin American and Caribbean region faithfully reflects this situation, as it has yet to efficiently address the challenges of halting malnutrition, strengthening rural agriculture and building resilience to climate change Despite the region’s growth in recent years, with most countries in the high and upper middle income brackets, the idea that they can take control of their own development, through domestic financing, fails to take into account the inequalities that can be generated in terms of domestic wealth distribution, climate vulnerability or social and political instability It is also possible to identify pockets of absolute poverty within each country, which still require technical and financial expertise and, hence, continue to require international cooperation A greater contribution is expected from the private sector through financial instruments that attract investment in line with the Sustainable Development Goals ( Currently, countries and stakeholders in the region have insufficient knowledge of private financing mechanisms and public private partnerships for project development, thereby hampering access to new resources The project aimed to develop conceptual frameworks on resource mobilization trends and opportunities for Latin American and Caribbean countries, while striking a structural balance between the different thematic areas in which FAO provides technical assistance and support The aim was to assist countries in identifying sources of financing that would enable them to achieve the SDGs, and to bring the corresponding strategic partners closer to the region and actively seek new private financing mechanisms At the national level, the objective was to increase the resources available to execute technical collaboration projects, through close interaction between governments, cooperation agencies and the private sector The desired outcome was to provide the region with a strategy for mobilizing resources to combat hunger and poverty among rural populations that are also vulnerable to climate change For this purpose, regional coordination is needed to support the project, which will help identify experiences and lessons learned that can be replicated or adapted in other countries at a later stage.

    The World Food Summit (WFS): Five years later took place in Rome 10 to 13 June 2002 to follow up, reaffirm and reinforce the commitments made at the WFS in November 1996, at which governments pledged their political will and their collective common and national commitment to achieving food security for all and to an ongoing effort to eradicate hunger in all countries, with an immediate view to reducing the number of undernourished people to half their level no later than 2015. The half-day sid e event on Rural women: crucial partners in the fight against hunger and poverty took place 12 June 2002. The event served to enhance the visibility, recognition and support for the important role and contributions of rural women, and in particular women farmers, in achieving the targets of the World Food Summit of 1996. The side event was organized by FAO’s Gender and Population Division with the financial contribution of the Government of Sweden.
