Call for Initiatives 2018

La The Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) invites all legal entities working in rural territories to submit innovative initiatives currently being implemented that seek to promote sustainable rural development (For more information, see the competition rules).

Based on this first call, FAO will create a Portfolio of Innovative and Scalable Initiatives for Sustainable Rural Development, which aims to systematize innovative initiatives being implemented in the different countries of the region, as well as to coordinate efforts and revitalize solutions for rural development under the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

10 Iniciativas

 

All the initiatives chosen in the first phase of this selection process will form part of the Portfolio of Innovative and Scalable Initiatives for Sustainable Rural Development.

In addition, the top 10 initiatives will be invited to attend the IV International Innovation Forum for Sustainable Rural Development to be held in November 2018. FAO will cover all travel and accommodation expenses.

Also, FAO will systematize and record selected initiatives in print, audio-visual and multimedia formats.

Finally, out of the 10 winning initiatives, FAO will select those with the greatest potential for scalability, which will form the basis for a network of initiatives to be presented to potential funders in order to facilitate the scaling-up process and provide other support.
