The second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation, occurring some 40 years after the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action, will give the international community the opportunity to review trends, assess progress to date in furthering development, review lessons learned in South -South and triangular cooperation and identify new opportunities offered by those modalities of cooperation to achieve the 2030 Agenda and other internationally agreed development goals.
South-South cooperation is a broad framework for collaboration among countries of the South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains. It is managed by developing countries themselves, with active participation from Governments, public and private sector actors, academia and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) among others.
