Comprehensive report of the Secretary-General on the state of South-South cooperation among developing countries (Mandate:  GA res. 58/220, para. 12)

Summary

At its thirty-third session in 1978, the General Assembly entrusted the overall intergovernmental review of technical cooperation among developing countries within the United Nations system to a high-level meeting of representatives of all States participating in the United Nations Development Programme, to be convened by the Administrator of UNDP in accordance with the provisions of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action for Promoting and Implementing Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (resolution 33/134).

The General Assembly considered the question at its fiftieth, fifty-second, fifty-fourth, fifty-sixth and fifty-seventh sessions (resolutions 50/119, 52/205, 54/226, 56/202 and 57/263).

At its fiftieth session, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General to present to the Assembly, on a biennial basis, a report entitled "State of South-South cooperation" containing a comprehensive overview and analysis of South-South economic and technical cooperation worldwide and international support in that regard, including quantitative data and indicators on all aspects of South-South cooperation as well as recommendations for strengthening such cooperation, keeping in view the importance of the proposal to convene a United Nations conference on South-South cooperation (resolution 50/119).

At its fifty-eighth session, the General Assembly decided to declare 19 December as the United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation and requested the Secretary-General to submit at the sixtieth session a comprehensive report on the state of South-South cooperation and on the implementation of the resolution (resolution 58/220).
