Mesoamerica Hunger Free AMEXCID-FAO

Mesoamerica

Mesoamerica Hunger Free has a regional coordination unit, nine national components, and a South- South Triangular Cooperation mechanism.

At a regional level, the Programme encourages dialogue and know-how exchange in order to jointly find solutions to common challenges among Mesoamerican countries. In this framework, Mesoamerica Hunger Free focuses on facilitating articulation and feedback processes between academia and actors responsible for the design and implementation of public policies; providing validated methodological tools to relevant actors and favoring synergies identification and supplementary resources mobilization; and promoting in the media and the political agendas the importance of the fight against hunger and rural poverty.

Through a South-South Triangular Cooperation mechanism, the Programme strengthens the relations and technical assistance among Mexican and Mesoamerican institutions and other public and private institutions of the region. These institutions link through short-term initiatives, such as the exchange of development solutions (know-how, experiences, best practices, policies, technology, technical knowledge, resources, etc.) regarding imperative matters, through the support and advice of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

These are some of the results achieved and the actions that Mesoamerica Hunger Free promotes at a regional level:

  • Reactivation and strengthening of the national chapters of the Parliamentary Front against Hunger.
  • Passing of the Model Law of Family Farming by PARLATINO.
  • Research studies related to the right to food within the framework of the Right to Food Observatory for Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Creation of the “Parliamentary Community of Knowledge” platform, in collaboration with PARLATINO. Passing of the Model Law of Small-Scale Fisheries by PARLATINO.
  • Establishment of pilot rainwater harvesting systems in six countries.
  • Strengthening national capacities to access sources of environmental financing.
