South-South Triangular Cooperation AMEXCID-FAO

South-south triangular cooperation is the mutual sharing and exchange of key development solutions (knowledge, experiences, good practices, policies, technology and resources) between countries in the global south and involving a third party.

"Mesoamerica Hunger Free AMEXCID-FAO" programme is a south-south triangular cooperation initiative arising from a collaboration agreement between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Government of Mexico, through the Mexican Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AMEXCID).

10 countries

Ten Mesoamerican countries participate in the Programme: Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominican Republic. 

Enabling frameworks to contribute from the institutions to a Mesoamerica free of malnutrition and rural poverty 

"Mesoamerica Hunger Free AMEXCID-FAO" focuses on supporting the generation and strengthening of enabling frameworks (public policies, regulatory instruments, and governance, management and coordination frameworks and mechanisms) that enable public actors to carry out their work adequately and with full capacity, in order to:

  • promote healthy diets for the entire population, including the most vulnerable; 
  • facilitate equitale access of the most vulnerable rural population to the resources needed to generate sustainable livelihoods; and
  • put in place inclusive institutional mechanisms that enable indigenous and afro-descendant population, rural women and youth to have equal access to opportunities. 

Contributing to the 2030 Agenda

The Programme contributes to United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially to goals 1 (No Poverty) and 2 (Zero Hunger).
