The SSN4PSI is a collaborative platform where governments, private sector organizations, experts and academics exchange knowledge, experience and expertise on public sector innovation. The network utilizes South-South and triangular cooperation approaches to empower southern countries to learn from and support one another in identifying vital innovations and scaling up novel solutions to public support challenges by customizing the necessary tools and strategies to their unique country contexts.
The South-South Network for Public Service Innovation (SSN4PSI) was launched at the 2017 at Global South-South Development Expo to harness innovations, particularly in the area of public service delivery and to help developing countries in the Global South achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The SSN4PSI uses “Matchmaking” methodology to achieve the objectives of the network. Matchmaking ensures that countries that have successfully tackled public service challenges “export” solutions to countries that need them the most.
