GSSD Expo side event of the Global Partnership Initiative on Promoting Effective Triangular Co-operation, Antalya, Turkey, 29 November

By Global Partnership

The Global Partnership Initiative (GPI) on Promoting Effective Triangular Co-operation is organising its inaugural meeting on 29 November in the margins of the Global South-South Development (GSSD) Expo in Antalya, Turkey. This first Working Group meeting of the GPI will bring together national, regional and international initiatives on triangular co-operation to discuss concrete steps to use triangular co-operation to improve development effectiveness through policy, programming and operational mechanisms.

Launched at the Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership (HLM2) in Nairobi, the GPI on Promoting Effective Triangular Co-operation is a multi-stakeholder initiative led by a core group including Mexico, Canada, the Islamic Development Bank, Japan, the UN Office for South-South Co-operation and the OECD. The initiative seeks to bring together different development stakeholders to better situate triangular co-operation in the evolving development landscape, which is characterised by increasingly diverse financing flows and innovative development partnerships. The working group will use existing data, guidelines, principles and initiatives as inspiration towards a concrete product to make triangular co-operation more effective.

The GPI also aims to prepare possible deliverables for the BAPA+40 conference in March 2019 and, through its three work streams, to analyse and systematise experiences and best practices; elaborate a set of voluntary principles that ground triangular co-operation implementation and programming in effectiveness; and consolidate frameworks of triangular co-operation that ensure country ownership, as well as inclusive partnerships for sustainable development.

The meeting is open to all interested stakeholders attending the GSSD Expo.
