|Overview : |
The United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) aims to be a robust knowledge hub providing advisory and consulting services to Member States, UN entities, IGOs, NGOs and other stakeholders on South-South and triangular cooperation (SSTC). It enables developing countries to effectively face their development challenges and harness opportunities to address them, while monitoring progress on the implementation of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action, New Directions Strategy and the Nairobi Outcome Document.
UNOSSC engages with Member States globally, regionally, as well as within the United Nations system to facilitate practical expressions of Southern solidarity towards the achievement of internationally agreed development goals. UNOSSC ensures that our southern constituencies have timely access to high quality analytical planning, mapping, programming, and reporting on data, trends and opportunities that will propel South-South and triangular cooperation in ways that ensure success.
In light of the growth of South-South cooperation and increasing importance of UNOSSC’s mandate, the Office, as part of its vision to enhance knowledge sharing and matching of development cooperation through South-South and triangular cooperation, is encouraging countries and institutions to publish their successful policies, initiatives and activities that led to the achievement of some of their development goals.
The Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD Expo) is a United Nations system-wide global event that is organized by the UNOSSC in its capacity as the General Assembly-mandated global and United Nations-wide facilitator of South-South and triangular cooperation, with full United Nations system-wide support and participation including the United Nations specialized agencies and programmes.
GSSD Expo 2018 will take place at UN Headquarters in New York from 28 to 30 November 2018.
Building on past successes and driven by the strong desire of the international community to continue to share and exchange South-South development solutions, the GSSD Expo 2018 will have full participation from the United Nations system as well as non-state development partners.
