    In this exciting side-event, the Sustainable Wildlife Management Programme will present how the Decision 14/7 on sustainable wildlife management and the Voluntary Guidance for a sustainable wild meat sector adopted by CoP14 can be implemented in different contexts. The SWM Programme is an initiative of the Organization of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) funded by the European Union and co-financed by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD). This 7-year programme (2017–2024) is being implemented in 15 OACPS member countries by a consortium of partners including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Centre for International Cooperation in Agricultural Research for Development (CIRAD), the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS

    During the last APFW, a high-level session was organized on regional initiatives on Forest and Landscape Restoration with the idea to initiate a discussion on the preparation of a regional Action Plan. During this session, most country representatives recognized the importance of FLR issues and proposed to to continue the dialogue on this regional Action Plan at the upcoming COFO session. At the APFC session on FLR (item 12), held on Friday 26/02/2016, member States recommended to FAO to sup port the preparation of this regionally-shared vision and Action Plan on Forest and Landscape Restoration. Based on this recommendation, the FLRM team and the RAP in Bangkok decided to hire an international consultant to prepare a draft strategy and an action plan for further discussion during COFO at a side event proposed jointly by FAO and key regional partners such as APF Net and WRI. By building on current regional dynamics on Forest and Landscape Restoration in the Asia-Pacific region, th is side event will allow to present the draft strategy and action plan on FLR to member State representatives in order to move forward an ambitious regional initiative on FLR (See below the detailed Agenda).

    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.
