SC, IsDB Group and UNOSSC Joint Event on sidelines of UNGA, September 2019
Title: Developing National Ecosystems for South-South and Triangular Cooperation to Achieve Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development
Date: 26 September, 2019
Venue: New York, USA
Organizers: South Centre, Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) Group and United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC)
Developing countries undertake South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTrC) in different ways, using various approaches, institutional arrangements, and methodologies. The increasing complexity and sophistication as well as the substantial scale of SSTrC call for improved and effective institutional arrangements. Based on field experience and analytical work, the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), together with its member countries, the South Centre and the UN Office for South-South Cooperation have identified the main pillars of an effective national institutional framework—or a “national ecosystem”— for SSTrC. The event will provide an opportunity to present the IsDB’s concept on national ecosystems for SSTrC and how it contributes to achieving Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and launch its publication entitled “Developing National Ecosystems for South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Achieving Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development”.
The objectives of the event are to:
i. Present IsDB’s concept on national ecosystems for SSTrC and how it contributes to achieving agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development;
ii. Launch IsDB’s paper entitled “Developing National Ecosystems for South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Achieving agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development”; and
iii. Present the outlines of the Bank’s “Capacity Development Program on Enhancing National Ecosystems for SSTrC for the IsDB Member Countries”.
This event is intended for Permanent Representatives to the United Nations, policy-makers from the countries of the Global South, representatives of development partners and development professionals.
