The series Sharing Innovative Experiences is part of the multidimensional strategy of the UNDP Special Unit for South-South Cooperation (SSC) to promote knowledge sharing in the South. It presents Southern solutions to Southern challenges through the use of Southern expertise. Each volume of case studies focuses on a specific topic that is identified by the Special Unit on the basis of its corporate priorities and their links to the Millennium Development Goals. The Special Unit works with partners to identify Southern initiatives that represent successful practices. A technical committee recommends initiatives that can be considered successful in their particular context. Following the methodology of the Global South-South Development Academy, representatives of the selected initiatives are invited to document their experiences in individual case studies and to present them at an international workshop for extensive sharing of information with other practitioners. The case studies are subsequently reworked to meet the criteria for publication.
