Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular

Nuestro proyecto busca aumentar la disponibilidad de alimentos inocuos de origen animal y mejorar los niveles de sanidad animal, con el fin de mejorar la seguridad alimentaria en Cuba. De esta forma estamos aportando a la Agenda 2030 a través de acciones que se enmarcan en el ODS 2, pero también en el 9 y el 12. Garantizando el acceso a alimentos de buena calidad, aportamos al desarrollo sostenible de la población de Cuba.

MAIN CONTRIBUTION, FROM THE PROJECT'S THEMATIC PERSPECTIVE

Goal 2.1

By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round

Justification:

The SA CUBA project contributes to target 2.1 by increasing the availability of safe food of animal origin and improving the health standards of animals such as poultry and pigs. This will be done through training of Cuban technicians and improvements in the infrastructure of the laboratories associated with the MINAG of Cuba.

Indicator 2.1.2

Prevalence of moderate or severe food insecurity in the population, based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES)

Justification:

The increase in safe food available to the Cuban population would reduce the levels of food insecurity for the Cuban population, both in terms of access to and quality of foods.

CONTRIBUTION FROM A PARTICULAR PROJECT COMPONENT, COMPLEMENTARY TO THE MAIN TOPIC

Goal 9.5

Enhance scientific research, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries, in particular developing countries, including, by 2030, encouraging innovation and substantially increasing the number of research and development workers per 1 million people and public and private research and development spending

Justification:

The SA CUBA project contributes to Target 9.5 through the training of laboratory technicians and the purchase of equipment, inputs and reagents for the National Food Hygiene Laboratory, the National Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and the National Laboratory for Avian Research and Diagnosis in Cuba.

Indicator 9.5.1

Research and development expenditure as a proportion of GDP

Justification:

The project contributes to this indicator by providing equipment, inputs and reagents that allow for increased analysis to improve access to healthy and quality animal foods for the Cuban population.

CONTRIBUTION FROM CROSSCUTTING TOPICS

Goal 12.A

Support developing countries to strengthen their scientific and technological capacity to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption and production

Justification:

The SA CUBA project contributes to target 12.A through the training of technicians and professionals from laboratories belonging to the Central Unit of Central Laboratories for Agricultural Health on residues of veterinary medicines, BSE, aflatoxins, salmonella, avian influenza and swine diseases. These trainings are later replicated by means of trainings sessions to the units that produce meat for human consumption. In this way, in addition to purchases that improve laboratories, scientific and technological capabilities are enhanced to improve access to safe food and a more sustainable production.
