South-South in Action: MASHAV – 60 Years of Israeli Development Cooperation

By March 13, 2019 October 13th, 2020 South South in Action

Recent decades have seen significant shifts in the global development landscape. One of those changes has been the evolution of some developing countries into partners well positioned to share their home-grown experience and practical knowledge. These countries have successfully addressed their own development challenges and are eager to share their successes with the world.

The State of Israel is one such country. Since gaining its independence in 1948, Israel has transformed from a developing country to a highly advanced economy. It achieved this through supporting scientific research, the development of human resources, and making use of new and innovative technologies.

Many of the solutions that spearheaded Israel’s development are presented in this edition of South-South and Triangular Cooperation in Action, which was developed through a partnership between the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation and MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation.
