The general goal of this third phase is to provide support for developing countries to achieve a sustainable transformation of agri-food systems and contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals, especially the first and second ones.

FAO Director General Qu Dongyu and China’s Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Tang Renjian, signed the agreement after Chinese President Xi Jinping announced, in September 2020, an additional financial contribution of 50 million dollars to the South-South Cooperation.

China’s effort to prioritize the development of agriculture and rural areas through the current revitalization strategy of the rural environment is highlighted in the agreement, according to a FAO statement circulated here.

It also highlights the role of this organization, specialized in food security and nutrition, agriculture, fishery and forestry, and especially the provision of technical assistance to its member nations in the area of sustainable development and livelihoods resilience.

To Qu, this is an important agreement, both for the collaboration between China’s expertise and FAO’s priorities and this nation’s constant contribution to the development of Triangular and South-South Cooperation.

According to FAO’s statement, this seeks to transform agri-food systems and achieve better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life for everybody without leaving anybody behind.
