Technical Cooperation Programme

About 700 to 800 TCP projects are approved every biennium and more than 1 000 TCPs can be operational at the same time. The challenge to systematically monitor and document how the TCP delivers for Member Countries has been taken up since 2018.  Results and Indicators are primarily derived from published Terminal Reports, but also from Country Annual Reports, the 2020 TCP Evaluation and from information provided by TCP Programme Officers and Lead Technical Officers.

Resources mobilized
Financial resources mobilized through various types of support provided by TCPs that attracted further investment by national governments, or funding from donors and multilateral agencies such as GEF/GCF, or that led to loans from regional/international development banks and funds. Whenever a part or the totality of mobilized resources are implemented through FAO, such amount will be recorded as “implemented through FAO”


Technical facilities upgraded
Refers to material support in various forms provided to enhance capacities, resilience and preparedness of counterparts and communities (examples range from the establishment of micro-irrigation systems, data processing equipment, greenhouses, tree nurseries, upgrading of laboratories or communal food processing facilities).
