    Creating Partnerships for Sustainable Rice Systems in Sub-Saharan Africa through South-South Cooperation - GCP/RAF/489/VEN 2021

    Rice consumption in Africa has grown exponentially in recent decades; however, most African countries are not self-sufficient in rice production. In sub-Saharan Africa, it is strongly believed that rice yields could be increased through a holistic strengthening of rice value chains. By increasing and improving production, countries would therefore be empowered to meet consumer demand for rice. This project was formulated in the context of South-South Cooperation (SSC) to contribute to the development of sustainable rice systems in sub-Saharan Africa by creating and leveraging partnerships between international, national and local actors from both the public and private sectors. Elements of its design included the promotion and production of the seeds of improved rice varieties, the improvement of post-harvest techniques among local farmers, and the identification, dissemination and adoption of good agricultural practices (GAPs) and effective rice production technologies.

    Africa’s population is set to grow to 1.5 billion by 2025, boosting rice demand but facing a shortfall in production and high import costs. Urbanization in Asia is also causing rice consumption to outstrip population growth. The South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) Capacity Development and Experience sharing for Rice Value Chain targets rice value-related national training, research, and extension institutions, as well as smallholder farmers, millers, traders, and national rice experts in Tanzania, Côte d’Ivoire and The Philippines.

    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
