South-South Cooperation

First slide

CSAM is strengthening regional cooperation for sustainable agricultural mechanization in order to identify shared priorities for the region and address trans-boundary issues that are difficult to resolve through efforts of individual countries alone. It is intensifying efforts to enable sharing of innovative and sustainable technologies, including amongst Least Developed and developing countries who often face similar contexts and challenges, through South-South and Triangular Cooperation. For instance, CSAM co-organized a side event titled ‘Building Smallholders’ Resilience to Climate Change through South-South Cooperation’ on 16 November 2017 at the China Pavilion at COP 23 in Bonn, Germany, in partnership with the Government of the People’s Republic of China, World Food Programme (WFP), FAO and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Another example is a ‘Seminar on Building Small Holders’ Resilience under Climate Change through Value Chain Management’ organized by CSAM and the World Food Programme in Kunming, China, in September 2017.
