Cooperation between nations need of the hour

Wednesday - March 27, 2019 10:10 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

Today, nearly 821 million people are chronically undernourished; mainly in the developing countries, according to the UN. 

WTN- The world needs to harness the power of exchanges between countries in the Global South if it is to reduce poverty and malnutrition while rising to the challenges posed by population growth and climate change, the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has said. “South-South and Triangular Cooperation has an important role to play in delivering and accelerating rural solutions to improve food and nutrition security -- not least because many countries of the Global South share similar climatic, environmental and economic features with each other,” IFAD Vice-President Cornelia Richter said in her address to delegates at the Second High-level UN Conference on South-South Cooperation.

Forty years after the Buenos Aires Plan of Action in 1978, world leaders convened again in Argentina's capital Buenos Aires recently to discuss how to shape a sustainable future by sharing knowledge, technology and expertise, enhancing trade and investments, and learning from each other's experiences. 

Today, nearly 821 million people are chronically undernourished; mainly in the developing countries, according to the UN. Sharing technical expertise, knowledge and skills about issues such as livestock, health, food processing and efficient water use and technical cooperation including dialogue on regional policy coordination are crucial to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, according to IFAD.

This is unfortunate that despite so much advancement in communication and heightened trade connections between countries, they still spar on insignificant issues instead of coming together on major issues that pose threat to humanity. Leaders must remember that the world is everyone’s home and in that sense, we are a family where each one has to be protective and caring of the other. 

Today no country can grow in isolation because we are a rapidly growing open society where communication technology has made it possible to access the deeper recesses of any country, its culture, society and working. Trade requirements have further pushed countries to open up and share common space for mutual benefit. Such cooperation must not just be limited to trade and pecuniary gains but also extended in scientific, technological and strategic collaborations for the greater good of humanity.

Today the world is a small space where the economic or geographical or political changes in one part affect the other in many ways. Conversely, the good things happening at one place also have a ripple effect on all humanity transcending geographical boundaries. As such, it is better to understand each other’s needs and problems as well as strengths and weaknesses better and together find out solutions that help keep the earth and its inhabitants safe and happy within the limitations of sovereign concerns because cooperation doesn’t mean sacrifice of domestic priorities.

But even after keeping the indigenous interests intact, there is ample scope of partnerships and global sharing that is often nullified by lack of vision of our leaders and aim for short-sighted gains. People should choose their leaders wisely and elect persons who have the capability to give the right direction embracing wider concerns that promote not just nationalism but also internationalism. -Window To News
