Promoting the strategic role of South-South and triangular cooperation to achieve the 2030 Agenda


This side event of the Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) will spotlight policy innovations in South-South and triangular cooperation, focused on: (i) addressing climate change, disaster risk and resilience; and (ii) strengthening international tax cooperation and domestic resource mobilization. It will look at these innovations from the lens of their contributions to accelerating progress on the 2030 and Addis Agendas.


Discussions will bring together representatives of governments and experts from the South, on the margin of the BAPA+40 Conference. Panelists will discuss the interplay between specific advances in South-South and triangular cooperation and their impact on international development cooperation more broadly, including in the global/regional efforts to scale-up financial and non-financial support for sustainable development efforts. 


Participants will learn about policy innovations resulting from South-South and triangular cooperation; challenges and opportunities for policy uptake; and follow-up measures to promote better results on the ground and long-term sustainability. A summary will capture key messages. 

The DCF Side Event will provide immediate input into the work of the United Nations Secretariat, ahead of several milestone events in 2019 geared to accelerate progress on financing for sustainable development and making development cooperation more climate proof and resilient.
