Who is involved?
In 1945, UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.
UNESCO strives to build networks among nations that enable this kind of solidarity, by:
Enabel, previously known as Belgian Technical Cooperation (BTC), is the Belgian development agency.
Its mission is to implement and coordinate the Belgian international development policy.
Enabel is a public agency. We manage development projects for the account of the Belgian Government and other donors. This way, we actively contribute to the global efforts for sustainable development.
The Global Donor Platform for Rural Development is a network of 38 bilateral and multilateral donors, international financing institutions, intergovernmental organisations and development agencies.
Members share a common vision that agriculture and rural development is central to poverty reduction, and a conviction that sustainable and efficient development requires a coordinated global approach.
