Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular
Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular

Contribuimos a la reducción de la pobreza a través de la sericicultura. Promovemos el trabajo decente y el crecimiento económico apoyando el asociacionismo. Capacitamos sobre producción y consumo responsable de manera sustentable y eficiente, reutilizando subproductos de la seda y desarrollando productos con diseño. Alentamos el empoderamiento de las mujeres en los grupos de trabajo, brindando herramientas y espacios con tecnología apropiada para que mujeres y poblaciones en situación de vulnerabilidad puedan desarrollar la actividad.

MAIN CONTRIBUTION, FROM THE PROJECT'S THEMATIC PERSPECTIVE

Goal 1.A

Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 1.A by promoting sericulture as a complementary productive activity for low-income populations, encouraging environmentally sustainable practices and practices adding local value. Transferring knowledge and resources to improve the technical and organizational capacities of the participants responsible for carrying out the Project in all its dimensions, namely: scientific, technological and productive.

Indicator 1.A.2

Proportion of total government spending on essential services (education, health and social protection)

Justification:

The project contributes to the infrastructure and human resources of the Project's applicant and co-applicant entities (state universities, municipalities, national research institutes); as well as the support of the triangular EU-LAC cooperation for the implementation of the activities aimed at the development of sericulture entrepreneurs and producers for poverty alleviation in the region.

Goal 8.2

Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 8.2 by promoting sericulture as a complementary productive activity for low-income populations, encouraging environmentally sustainable practices and adding local value.

Justification:

INDICATOR NOT RELEVANT FOR THE PROJECT

Goal 8.4

Improve progressively, through 2030, global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, in accordance with the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production, with developed countries taking the lead

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 8.4 by promoting sericulture as a complementary productive activity for low-income populations, encouraging environmentally sustainable practices and adding local value. To this aim, professionals are trained in good practices in the field of sustainable sericulture, value addition and design management, including the latest global trends in concepts of resource regeneration, circular economy, etc.

Justification:

TARGET WITHOUT INDICATOR

Goal 12.2

By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 12.2 by promoting sericulture as a complementary productive activity for low-income populations, encouraging environmentally sustainable practices and adding local value.

Justification:

INDICATOR NOT RELEVANT FOR THE PROJECT

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

Goal 5.5

Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 5.5 by granting a larger quota (70%) to women to attend trainings or events and by encouraging the formation of associative entrepreneurs' groups led mostly by women. The sericulture activity shows high levels of women's participation both in carrying out entrepreneurial activities and in bringing their capacity and knowledge in the field of production.

Indicator 5.5.2

Proportion of women in managerial positions

Justification:

The project particularly supports entrepreneurial capacities from primary production to the elaboration of final products, promoting women's training in the working groups.

Goal 5.B

Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 5.B through training and technology transfer in the use of appropriate technology for sericulture production and material processing. Further contribution is also being brought through the construction of demonstration centers equipped with adequate technology for sericulture production and the added value for female entrepreneurs groups, as well as updates regarding marketing channels, virtual sales channels and marketing tools.

Justification:

TARGET WITHOUT INDICATOR

CONTRIBUTION FROM CROSSCUTTING TOPICS

Goal 13.B

Promote mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management in least developed countries and small island developing States, including focusing on women, youth and local and marginalized communities

Justification:

The SEDA project contributes to Target 13.B through activities of technology transfer and knowledge extension in agro-ecological and environmentally sustainable management, encouraging producers and sericulture artisans -many of whom are considered as vulnerable communities- to undertake responsible production strategies, promoting the non-use of agrotoxics, emphasizing the potential for reuse and recycling of silk production. These actions take place both in rural populations and in marginal urban and semi-urban areas, which have the knowledge to undertake the transformation of silk as a high value material.
