24/08/2015 - 

24 August 2015, Rome – Agencies of the United Nations and Member States will gather with groups from the private and civil society sectors to discuss South-South policy in Macao, China this week. 

The three-day forum, entitled: “Scaling-up global support for South-South and Triangular Cooperation in the context of the post-2015 development agenda,” is being organized by the General Assembly High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation and other strategic partners.

Stakeholders are expected to address South-South policy, with special focus on partnership building, innovative financing and how to build on the successes achieved to-date.

The world has undergone a major economic and political transformation over the last three decades. These changes, particularly in the South, have been more rapid than at any time during a similar span in world history. 

Representatives from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) will attend, with FAO pledging to play a pivotal role as a partner in facilitating the sharing of tried and tested experiences, knowledge and technology between countries of the South. 

“We are here to showcase our active commitment and involvement to engage in discussions and support the mainstreaming of South-South Cooperation as a development mechanism,” said Jong-Jin Kim, Director of the FAO South-South and Resource Mobilization Division.

It is anticipated that the dialogue will inspire innovative contributions and new South-South partnerships towards delivering on the post-2015 sustainable development agenda.
