2016年4月4日,罗马 - 粮农组织、中国和刚果民主共和国签署了一项为期两年,价值近150万美元的协议,旨在帮助这一饱受冲突蹂躏的非洲国家提高粮食和营养安全。 该协议建立了一个新的南南合作伙伴关系,让中国的技术和专业知识惠及该国的农业部门。这项举措将由2009年创建的粮农组织—中国南南合作计划和中国于去年提供的额外资金推动实施。 南南合作项目帮助发展中国家之间分享和传递知识和技术专长,从而使那些经过全球南部国家尝试和检验过的创新方法和良好规范惠及面临类似挑战的其他国家。 利用中国的技术专长重振农业 刚果民主共和国幅员辽阔,拥有丰富的自然资源,经济潜力巨大。但是,局部地区冲突导致数百万人丧生,造成局势不稳,应对营养不良和粮食不安全问题迫在眉睫。新伙伴关系将帮助该国改进自然资源的可持续管理和利用,从而重振农业并改善农村生计。 五位中国专家和八名技术员将被派驻该国首都金沙萨和东南部城市卢本巴希,任期两年。 他们的首要任务包括改进稻米和蔬菜生产,以及引进新技术,如专业化水产养殖和家畜繁育。 他们需要完成的几项艰巨任务包括逐步增加优质种子储备,建设专业技术队伍,改善土地和资金获取途径。中国专家将与当地伙伴合作,了解农业社区所面临的困难并制定解决方案。 增强粮食安全,改善生计 粮农组织与中国在刚果民主共和国共同实施的该项新举措将不仅帮助农民增加产量,提高产品质量,而且还帮助他们从自给自足转向将剩余产品送到市场销售。 目前正在实施的若干粮农组织与中国伙伴关系计划涉及粮食和营养安全、可持续农业和减贫等多个领域。已经落实到位的项目遍及非洲、亚洲、拉丁美洲及加勒比和南太平洋区域的至少28个国家。 粮农组织总干事若泽·格拉济阿诺·达席尔瓦认为南南合作是“粮农组织为应对可持续发展目标提出的挑战所作努力的一个核心支柱。”
