South-South Cooperation

Sharing of knowledge and experiences between developing countries, or South-South cooperation, is a crucial pillar of UNDP's work in Latin America and the Caribbean and beyond. Recent initiatives include taking Latin American initiatives to reduce poverty and inequality to Africa, sharing the region’s democratic transition experience with Arab States and sharing knowledge about climate resilience within the Caribbean. We support national capacities in South-South and triangular cooperation by participating in key forums, promoting country-led dialogues, knowledge sharing and exchanges, and providing methodological assistance. This includes transfers of best practices through diverse instruments and methodologies aimed at capturing, systematizing and adapting successful experiences, and also mapping and researching multilateral support for such exchanges in the region.
