Good Practices

Southern countries are increasingly championing innovative initiatives that are leading to the cross-country transfer of knowledge and experience between Southern nations, to overcome common transnational challenges. There is a vast repository of knowledge available in the Global South on good practices in South-South and triangular cooperation and lessons learned that can be shared with a variety of stakeholders to learn and benefit from.

Recognizing this richness in knowledge and experience and the importance of peer-to-peer learning and horizontal partnerships, South-South Galaxy hosts a database of hundreds of development solutions from UN agencies, member states, international organizations, NGOs, private sector entities and other development partners. The solutions featured on South-South Galaxy are replicable, sustainable and scalable, towards the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

South-South Galaxy facilities knowledge sharing and offers organizations an opportunity to connect solution owners with solution providers, serving as a South-South and triangular partnership accelerator. Southern partners can share their solutions, connect and exchange knowledge with other organizations working with similar issues, and form partnerships towards the achievement of similar goals.

Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for
Sustainable Development Publications Series

In collaboration with Member States, United Nations entities and development partners, UNOSSC has been conducting a compilation of lessons learned entitled “Good practices in South-South and triangular cooperation for sustainable development”.  The compilation features best practices from the global South that are relevant to the implementation of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The evidence gathered in these good practices aim to benefit developing countries that seek to scale up South-South and triangular cooperation initiatives, in particular with respect to widening the application of policies, strategies and programmes.
