Leveraging South-South and triangular cooperation for sustainable development: on the road to BAPA+40.
South-South cooperation is experiencing remarkable expansion in scope and magnitude, including through intra- and inter-regional collaboration mechanisms. Both South-South and triangular development cooperation are making a positive development impact, reducing asymmetries. In this session, participants will examine challenges and opportunities in South-South and triangular cooperation, in the framework of sustainable development. The session will aim to further identify and advance the distinctive contributions of South-South and triangular cooperation in achieving the 2030 Agenda and Paris Agreement. The session will build on the key findings of the DCF Argentina Highlevel Symposium and look ahead to the Second United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40), to be held in Argentina in March 2019.

Session 5
Bridging capacity gaps and facilitating technology development and transfer in strategic areas
Strengthening countries’ capacity to mobilise domestic resources is essential not for closing the existing SDG financing gap but more fundamentally for ensuring country-owned and country-led implementation of the 2030 Agenda. During the first part of the session participants will review progress in boosting the contribution of development cooperation to building countries’ capacities to mobilise domestic resources for development cooperation. During the second part of the session, responding to the 2030 Agenda’s commitment to target those furthest behind first, participants will look at evolving and innovative approaches to help countries strengthen their statistical capacities to identify and respond to the needs and priorities of the most marginalised and vulnerable people. This will include a contribution from a youth perspective.
