South-South in Action: South-South and Triangular Cooperation in Agricultural Development – FAO Experiences

August 4, 2022

Seeking to promote the fundamental role of South-South and triangular cooperation in contributing to the alleviation of hunger, malnutrition and other development challenges across the Global South, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) have collaborated to produce the South-South in Action publication: “South–South Cooperation in Action South–South and triangular cooperation in agricultural development: FAO’s experiences”.

The publication describes engagement of FAO in SSTC in support of efforts to boost agricultural productivity, enhance food and nutrition security and alleviate poverty in developing countries worldwide. It provides a snapshot of FAO’s engagement in SSTC through three different case studies, focusing on grassroots development, institutional capacity-building and policy. It also presents key lessons learned from FAO’s experiences with SSTC and provides an outline for the future development of SSTC in FAO, as proposed in the Organization’s new Strategic Framework for SSTC.
