The annual Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD Expo), will take place at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 28 to 30 November, 2018. Organized by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) in collaboration with United Nations agencies and other partners, the GSSD Expo will strategically engage all development actors, including the private sector, civil society, academic and philanthropic organizations, to scale up concrete Southern-grown initiatives to help achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 
This year marks 10 years since the GSSD Expo’s inception in 2008.

It provides a powerful platform for all development actors and stakeholders to showcase Southern development solutions, celebrate South-South and triangular cooperation successes, share knowledge and lessons learned, explore new avenues for collaboration, and initiate new partnership efforts.
