Resource Partners
13 Jul 2015
For several decades, Japan has been among the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) foremost partners in feeding the hungry and caring for the earth. The country ranks second in assessed contributions to FAO’s regular budget, and fourth in terms of voluntary contributions in 2012-2013. It is also among the top contributors to the 2 500 ongoing field programmes, with a total value of nearly USD 800 million.  It also provides expertise in the fields of agriculture, fisheries and forestry, contributing valuable human resources to various FAO projects.
South-south Cooperation
15 Jun 2015
Brazil has made tremendous progress in reducing malnutrition. In 1990, 14.8 percent of the population suffered from hunger; the figure is now just 1.7 percent. This remarkable transformation owes much to the country’s school feeding programme. By 2014, the programme was supplying approximately 43 million pupils with one or more servings of food per day, in almost 250 000 schools across the country. By Brazilian law, at least 30 percent of the food must be sourced from family farms, thus providing significant benefits to over 120 000 rural families.

Middle Income Countries (MICs) are increasingly contributing to the global development agenda, and many are leading figures in SSC, providing technical expertise and financial support to countries in the South.

The 2014 Annual Report on FAO's projects and activities in support of cooperatives and producer organizations (POs) provides evidence of how cooperatives and POs can be strategic partners for FAO and important agents of change, as clearly stressed in the FAO Strategic Framework 2010-2019. It is a yearly publication, now on its seventh edition.
