Launched in 2015, the partnership initiative on South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Agricultural Development and Enhanced Food Security (SSTC-ADFS) intends to systematically promote South-South and Triangular Cooperation among the participating countries as well as other countries through identification, pilot-testing, and documentation of successful models and solutions ready for replication. The project covers Algeria, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
The SSTC-ADFS partnership initiative has been supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development, as the key funding partner, the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation as the key organizing partner, as well as by the Islamic Development Bank that catalyzed the expanded geographic coverage of the initiative. The initiative offers a holistic approach in helping participating countries promote their respective South-South Cooperation agendas in agricultural development, and focuses on south-south knowledge exchange, transfer of innovative solutions, policy advice and institutional capacity development.
The initiative has delivered a variety of results, including:
