The United Nations office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) in the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN system coordinator and focal point for South-South cooperation (SSC). The Policy and Partnership Division of the Office monitors South-South and triangular cooperation in the UN system and reports to the highest levels of the system, including the UN General Assembly, the High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation (HLC), the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the UNDP/UNFPA Executive Board. It provides secretariat services to biennial sessions of the High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation and its bureau and to other relevant United Nations governing bodies. It supports the mainstreaming of South-South approaches to development in global policies and operational activities of the United Nations development system and enhances the coherence and coordination of United Nations system support to South-South and triangular cooperation. The Policy Division has as its top priority the strengthening of the multilateral South-South and triangular policy-making processes in advancing Southern perspectives and approaches in major intergovernmental and inter-agency processes and enhancing the coherence and coordination of the UN support to South-South and triangular cooperation.
The General Assembly in its Resolution 72/237 requested the Secretary-General to submit a comprehensive report on the state of South-South cooperation to its 73rd session in 2018. The purpose of the report is to inform discussions on South-South cooperation as the General Assembly considers the operational activities for development. This report will focus on efforts by the United Nations system organizations to promote South-South cooperation during 2017-2018, at global, regional and national levels. The report will also put forward recommendations on the measures needed to leverage South-South approaches towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other internationally agreed development priorities.
UNOSSC seeks to hire a Senior Research Consultant to assist with the preparation of the 2018 report of the Secretary General on the state of South-South cooperation, by analyzing surveys, conducting research, and drafting the report that will inform deliberations of Member States on United Nations support to South-South cooperation during the 73rd session of the General Assembly.
