As reiterated in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, at the core of which are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA), South-South & Triangular Cooperation (SSC/TrC) is playing a greater role than ever before in the development cooperation landscape. Against the backdrop of unprecedented transformations in the economic and political role of Southern powers, such a new and inclusive global partnership, complementing North-South Cooperation, is not only a logical consequence, but also urgently needed to ensure adequate balance and representation on the international stage.
Around the globe and in the different regions and countries, new actors are beginning to shape the development cooperation agenda. New types of partnerships and modalities of cooperation are growing in importance, in volume of resources and geographical reach. Yet, information about the approaches taken, or the results achieved is still fragmented. So far data about SSC/TrC has not been shared systematically, and we only have a vague and very incomplete idea of its full scale, key areas, modalities, scope and the lessons learned from existing experiences that could maximize development outcomes.
Against all this context, and acknowledging the importance of better documenting their own development cooperation, some southern partners have increasingly made efforts to publicize and share their development cooperation practices. At the regional level, as experienced already in the Iberoamerican region (SEGIB) and with the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), this reporting process is also providing the opportunity to improve the overall SSC management in the region. It is also promoting the political dialogue around key policy and institutional aspects to enable SSC and therefore, enhancing collaboration, integration and partnerships between the countries in these regions.
In this same line, in April 2018, a number of pilot African countries, together with NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency and UNDP Regional Service Center for Africa (RSCA), agreed to push for a South-South Cooperation reporting related initiative. They agreed to initiate the process by gathering data on SSC initiatives that occurred in 2017 at the bilateral level, with a focus on technical and know-how exchanges. The intention is to build from the experience and add other factors and variables in consecutive SSC reports.
In response to this process, the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, through UNDP, is looking for an expert to undertake the research and document information on south-south cooperation activities in Uganda. The assignment will be carried over a period of 4 months, and it is intended to deliver a fill-in template – based on a template and the guidelines– that will capture all SSC initiatives that were completed in year 2017. As per the guidelines for reporting, Bilateral Cooperation initiatives are considered as the process whereby two countries pursue their individual and/or shared national capacity development objectives through exchanges of knowledge, skills, resources and technical know-how. An initiative may consist of several activities, and it is considered completed when the last activity ends successfully. Beyond the data collection, the national work will also aim at gathering Uganda’s strategic statements – in a formal statement-foreword format - with the priorities on south-south cooperation towards the Buenos Aires Plan of Action (BAPA) +40 meeting. Such foreword will be included, together with the rest of the leading countries and partner organizations in the Foreword of the Report.
The objective of this consultancy is to support the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development in the research and gathering of data on SSC initiatives of 2017, prepare national report for Uganda as well as collecting the information on key strategic priorities of Uganda towards the BAPA+40 to elaborate the formal statement of the government of Uganda that will be included in the regional report.
