FAO Conference 40th Session

China - FAO South-South Cooperation: Promoting Inclusive and Sustainable Development

Sheikh Zayed Centre (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time



FAO’s South-South Cooperation Programme (SSC), under the FAO Framework, has been going on for more than 20 years, since the Organization officially launched the Special Programme for Food Security (SPFS) in 1996. Throughout these years, FAO has coordinated the international community to explore effective ways to address food security threats in developing countries, which made important contributions to improving agricultural productivity and food security in the latter.

China, as a significant participant and active supporter of FAO’s SSC Programme, has witnessed the burgeoning development of SSC with FAO and other partners. This side event aims to share achievements and experiences, and to improve the worldwide understanding of FAO’s SSC Programme, to further extend global SSC partnerships, and promote SSC and tripartite cooperation, to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations.
