The UNOSSC, hosted by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is responsible for supporting intergovernmental political process in South-South and triangular cooperation and mainstreaming South-South and triangular cooperation across the UN system and assisting developing countries in strengthening their capacities to manage, design and implement South-South and triangular cooperation policies and initiatives through the identification, sharing, and transfer of successful Southern generated-development solutions.
The UNOSSC also supports Member States and other stakeholders in cultivating, building and consolidating strategic partnerships that are critical for advancing South-South and triangular cooperation for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other Internationally Agreed Sustainable Development Goals.
UNOSSC supports the United Nations development system and its partners at global, regional and national levels, to raise awareness and enhance South-South and triangular cooperation through: monitoring progress in South-South cooperation globally; supporting dialogue among Southern countries; coordinating focal point networks; coordinating an inter-agency mechanism on South-South cooperation; providing advisory services to Member States; and supporting training programmes.
With the growing importance of South-South and triangular cooperation in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development era, there is a need to increase the UNOSSC’s ability to support the development, the nurturing and the management of partnerships and action in line with policy guidance emanating from the General Assembly and the High Level Committee on South-South Cooperation (HLC) for which UNOSSC acts as the Secretariat.
UNOSSC engages in multi-stakeholder partnerships to galvanize South-South and triangular collective action with diversity of actors in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and related international agreements. Multistakeholders engagement should be linked to the policy and partnerships mandate of the UNOSSC and its contribution to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals, leveraging the UN system’s institutional, substantive, human and financial resources and UNDP’s related policies and procedures for its implementation.
