Program of Brazil-FAO International Cooperation
La definición de una propuesta de indicadores es un importante instrumento de soporte para el seguimiento e implementación de las Directrices Voluntarias en la región.
En los últimos 10 años, el Programa de Cooperación Brasil/ FAO ha ejecutado 38 proyectos en 33 países, movilizando 60 millones de dólares a favor de la seguridad alimentaria.
Esta es la segunda etapa del intercambio promovido por la FAO y la Articulación con el Semiárido Brasileño (ASA).
El Gobierno brasileño ya invirtió más de 50 millones de dólares para la promoción de la seguridad alimentaria y nutricional, desarrollo rural sostenible y agricultura familiar.

The Program of Brazil-FAO International Cooperation was created out of interest by the Government of Brazil and FAO to exchange experiences and knowledge to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. 

The Program of Brazil-FAO International Cooperation reflects the international duties of Brazil for the protection, promotion and guarantee of rights; such as the human right to food, land and water, agricultural recovery and the development of family farming, including land reform. [See more]
