The sharing of knowledge and experiences has become one of the most important and dynamic pillars of South-South and triangular cooperation. It has gained prominence among developing countries who are increasingly recognizing good practices on South-South and triangular cooperation as viable pathways to address common transnational challenges and to accelerate progress in the achievement of the SDGs. Such exchanges have been cost-effective and easily adaptable. In BAPA+40 outcome document, it acknowledges the importance of sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practices on South-South and triangular cooperation in the attainment of sustainable development and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
To build on this momentum, the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC), along with Member States, UN agencies, and other development partners will once again develop a compendium of “Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development” which will feature initiatives that contribute to the achievement of SDGs while illustrating the central tenets of effective South-South and triangular cooperation. Such a compilation will further enrich and enlarge the database on existing South-South and triangular good practices for all Southern partners to benefit from.
