[GPI Side Event] Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD) – Antalya, 2017
November 29, 2017
The first working group meeting of the Global Partnership Initiative (GPI) on effective triangular cooperation brought together the core group members (Mexico, Canada, Japan, United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC), Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)) as well as representatives from governments and international organisations that are members of the initiative or interested in joining the GPI. The aim of the side event was to discuss the next steps of the GPI in the lead-up to the Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation in Buenos Aires (BAPA+40 Conference) in March 2019. The GPI has created three workstreams (advocacy, analytical, and operational) to analyze, and systematize experiences and best practices; elaborate a set of voluntary principles; and consolidate frameworks of triangular cooperation that ensure country-led ownership, as well as inclusive partnerships for sustainable development.
