20th HLC on SSC, SIDE EVENT: The United Nations and the scaling up of South-South and triangular cooperation to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (1 June 2021, 1 – 2:30 pm NYT)

Show all

Under the background of growth of SSTC and the formulation of the UN system-wide strategy and the action plan, this side-event is designed to discuss how the UN entities can, in a more systematic and coherent manner, support member states to achieve SDGs by leveraging and scaling up South-South and triangular cooperation at various levels, thus enhancing the impact of UN operational activities for development.

The discussion will also highlight the importance of national governments as partner to catalyze South-South and triangular cooperation by promoting and sharing homegrown solutions. It can also be discussed how the United Nations system could engage and partner national governments to establish country platforms to document and share those key solutions that could be further scaled-up or replicated in other countries.
