Alliance for Sustainable Food Systems and Empowered Communities (Sufosec) launched
The Sufosec Alliance is a newly created partnership between the Swiss NGOs Aqua Alimenta, Fastenopfer, Skat Foundation, Swissaid, Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Suisse and Vivamos Mejor.
Building on each member’s strength, the Alliance will focus on activities related to sustainable food systems and empowering communities. Its joint programme, launched in January 2021, is co-funded by SDC Institutional Partnerships.
Responding to the fact that at least 690 million people still suffer from hunger, the Sufosec Alliance will focus on promoting sustainable local food systems and community empowerment. The programme will be implemented in partnership with NGOs and CSOs in 27 countries, targeting five objectives as shown in the figure below. The Alliance member organisations will pool resources to create and share knowledge and to explore and use synergies both in Switzerland and in the programme countries. Sufosec learning projects were launched around the alliance’s key learning topics agroecology, local ownership, and the triple nexus.
