  • When: 16 September 2020 | 16.00-17.30 CEST


WFP kindly invites to attend the virtual celebration of the 2020 UN Day for South-South Cooperation, jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP). The RBAs and the invited Government representatives will focus on how SSTC can support the transformation of food systems for the benefit of rural poor smallholder farmers, addressing COVID-19 related vulnerabilities and the needs of the people already at risk of being left behind.

The event will also provide an opportunity for the RBAs to renew their commitment to working together to support countries through SSTC. Three years after the release of their Joint Roadmap on strengthening collaboration among the Rome-based Agencies on SSTC, FAO, IFAD and WFP will share their views of how SSTC can also support food systems transformation and address immediate and mid-term needs, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the RBAs will bring in examples of how their work is positively affecting the transformation of food systems.
