“This new initiative is the latest development in UNEP’s ongoing efforts to support South-South cooperation and capacity-building. Central among these is UNEP’s Green Economy initiative, which has assisted and encouraged developing countries to embed sustainability within their national economies – from organic agriculture in Cuba to solar energy in Barbados. These are projects which have the potential to be scaled-up and replicated elsewhere in the global South,” according to the Deputy Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), Amina Mohamed,(Photo Below).

The first online portal of its kind, the South-South Cooperation Exchange Mechanism will feature a host of initiatives – such as a biomass project at a Kenyan sugar factory and sustainable mining in Sierra Leone – and provide a forum where various actors working on environmental issues in developing countries can submit content, as well as share their expertise and experiences with peers. South-South cooperation refers to the exchange of technology, skills, resources and information between governments, organizations and individuals in the developing world. Currently, around 30 case studies from Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean can already be consulted on the website, available at: www.unep.org/south-south-cooperation.
