When it comes to beating back climate change and reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, countries of the Global South will make major strides “by learning from each other, as they share similar problems”.

That’s according to Cornelia Richter, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)’s vice-president, the UN agency that helps transform the lives of impoverished rural people all over the world.

IFAD is one of the agencies taking part in the UN’s Second High-Level Conference on South-South Cooperation, or BAPA+40, in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires this week.
