IsDB ‘Reverse Linkage’ Mechanism : Development through South-South Cooperation

By April 21, 2020 September 12th, 2020 UN Day for SSC 2020

The IsDB has introduced an enhanced technical cooperation approach – Reverse Linkage – foe South-South Cooperation, that identifies the existing know-how, expertise, technology and resources within our member countries and transfers them to those in need, with the objective of achieving sustainable development outcomes.

In 2012, the IsDB introduced a new scaled-up, results- oriented, capacity development initiative within the TCP. This was called Reverse Linkage and was based on the IsDB’s longstanding experience with the TCP.

In 2017, the Board of Executive Directors of the IsDB approved the Reverse Linkage policy. This set the practical operational boundaries and defined the features of Reverse Linkage, standardizing its use across the IsDB and its member counties.

The Reverse Linkage policy is a manifestation of the IsDB’s commitment to expand its support to results-oriented interventions and to promote connectivity under South-South Cooperation among IsDB member countries. Ultimately, its aim is to help realize the Sustainable Development Goals.
