Good Practices

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 the Sustainable Development Goals. It presents notable solutions at the national, subregional, regional and global levels to crucial challenges faced by developing countries in eradicating poverty, reducing inequality, supporting climate change action and creating peaceful and cohesive societies. They feature innovative initiatives that illustrate the central tenets of effective South-South and triangular cooperation, including initiatives that involve and benefit a great number of people in two or more Southern countries, that address transnational development challenges, that present solutions that have been piloted and scaled up, and that have tangible development outcomes that address the attainment 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.

South-South in Action

The “South-South in Action” publication series offers partners of UNOSSC, including United Nations entities, Member States, intergovernmental organizations and civil society, a platform for sharing best practices from their South-South and triangular cooperation initiatives. Launched in 2016, this flagship series of reports is facilitating the building of a knowledge bank of successful South-South initiatives.

Gives countries and partners full ownership of the narrative of their undertakings. It allows them to be in the driver’s seat from the conceptualization of the undertaking, through the writing and the sharing phases of the story of their successful undertakings.

Provides governments, development partners and any other interested stakeholders, with basic information on a particular government’s or partner’s South-South and triangular activities.

Is a window for development partners to see and recognize opportunities for collaboration that exist in the South.
