South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Gender Equality

South-South and triangular cooperation plays a crucial role in promoting gender equality and advancing the broader Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, expertise, and resources among countries of the Global South and with partners in the North. This collaborative approach enhances the capacity of developing countries to implement gender-sensitive policies and programs, leveraging shared experiences and solutions to overcome common challenges.

By fostering partnerships and collaborative networks, South-South and triangular cooperation amplifies the impact of gender equality initiatives, contributing significantly to the achievement of not only SDG 5 but also intersecting objectives across the SDGs framework. This synergy accelerates progress towards a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future. Explore the resources below to learn how this work is being implemented across the Global South.
