South-South Galaxy to be launched on UN Day for South-South Cooperation, 12 September

Show all

The United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation along with development partners has developed a global knowledge sharing and partnership-brokering platform – South-South Galaxy. Powered by artificial intelligence, this platform aims to respond systematically and effectively in supporting developing countries’ demand to connect, learn and collaborate with potential partners. It serves as a consolidated South-South solutions platform for Southern partners in the UN system and acts as a one-stop-shop for all partners to use. The platform compliments, rather than substitutes or duplicates existing national or regional institutional arrangements.

During the high-level commemoration of United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation on 12 September 2019, UNOSSC, along with partners, will be launching the South-South Galaxy platform. This launch builds on the prototype that was presented at a side-event during the BAPA+40 Conference by integrating new features and functionalities.

The launch will be followed by a technical discussion held at the UNOSSC Offices in New York.
