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, the 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.

Southern partners can publish their Southern development solutions and needs, exchange knowledge, foster partnerships, access to cutting-edge research, feature and engage in capacity building initiatives, and connect the UN system and South-South partners.

South-South Galaxy also connects Southern partners with financing mechanisms, and most importantly, it provides advisory services by linking Southern partners with thematic experts from UN agencies to provide implementation support, when requested.
