FAO - News Article: Rabobank Foundation and FAO to expand partnership

FAO - News Article: Rabobank Foundation and FAO to expand partnership: "In 2013, FAO and Rabobank Foundation began a partnership by collaborating on three projects in Tanzania, Ethiopia and Kenya, all oriented to improving smallholder farmers' incomes, access to financial tools and ability to invest in more efficient production of food crops.

Building on the progress achieved so far, the two institutions now intend to ramp up their pilot projects and establish similar collaborations in other countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

"We believe that working together with an organization like FAO can accelerate the realization of our mutual goals," said Pierre van Hedel, managing director of Rabobank Foundation. "We highly appreciate FAO's long-term commitment and vision with regard to the topic of food security, which is needed for smallholder development.""
