Through the South-South in Action Series the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation encourages developing countries and partners to publish their successful policies, initiatives and activities that have led to the achievement of their development goals.

South-South in Action:

  • Gives countries and partners full ownership of the narrative of their undertakings. It allows them to be in the driver’s seat from the conceptualization of the undertaking, through the writing and the sharing phases of the story of their successful undertakings.
  • Provides governments, development partners and any other interested stakeholders, with basic information on a particular government’s or partner’s South-South and triangular activities.
  • Is a window for development partners to see and recognize opportunities for collaboration that exist in the South.
