South-South Galaxy provides an enabling space for countries of the South, the UN system and other partners to work together on demand-driven initiatives. It will allow them to share their innovative good practices that could be beneficial to other Southern partners in priority areas related to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and other internationally agreed development goals identified by the countries of the South. South-South Galaxy will provide the space for user to also ask for solutions, if they are not able to find a similar solution to address their own development challenges.
Through such requests, South-South Galaxy administrators will review the requests and connect you with partners who have addressed similar challenges or connect you with UN experts who specialize in the respective thematic area to provide advisory support.
