At the Side-Event South-South Cooperation in a Digital Era, held on the margins of the Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40), the UNICEF and UNOSSC joint publication was launched as part of the South-South and Triangular Cooperation in Action series.
The new publication Advancing children’s rights and well-being through South-South and Triangular Cooperation, features case studies that demonstrates how UNICEF and its partners support and promote SSTrC to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals for children. The selected case studies in the areas of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Early Childhood Development (ECD) and development tools, technology and innovations for children including the examples of RapidPro and Upshift, is part of the evidence that established SSTrC as a powerful tool to scale-up sustainable solutions.
The challenges facing children are increasingly global, while effective solutions need to be implemented locally. Good solutions are continuously created in the global South and there is technical capacity, programme experience, financial resources and political support that can be harnessed for children’s well-being. UNICEF supports South-South and triangular cooperation for children by identifying and documenting solutions, good practices and lessons learnt in order to facilitate knowledge exchange and learning, scaling up of successful initiatives and adapting them to local contexts.
