IFAD and South-South and Triangular Cooperation: An interview with Satu Santala

06 September 2022

Global hunger and food insufficiency are increasing, reflecting increased inequalities arising from unequal economic recovery and persisting income losses following the pandemic. Development partners must step up their efforts to help the most vulnerable people counter the effects of the pandemic, climate change, and now the war in Ukraine. Cooperation among countries of the global south, especially through South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC), has enormous potential to scale up this response.

Satu Santala, Associate Vice-President of the External Relations and Governance Department at IFAD, tells us more about the Fund’s approach to tackling these global challenges through SSTC, how the Fund is leveraging its SSTC corporate strategy to complement its development agenda of rural recovery and resilience, and IFAD’s participation in the upcoming Global South-South Development Expo.
