International Think Tank for LLDCs is attending in the High-level Multi-stakeholders Strategy Forum on “Scaling-up Global Support for South-South and Triangular Cooperation in the Context of the Post-2015 Development Agenda” organized by the United Nations General Assembly High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation in collaboration with Macau, China on 25-26 August 2015, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Macau, China with the invitation.
Under the leadership of the President of the General Assembly High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation, the High-level Multi-stakeholders Strategy Forum aims to review and strategically align existing instruments and innovative new approaches with diverse institutional partnerships and networks toward building an institutional alliance of the Global South to address global and regional challenges.
To share experiences, perspectives and practical approaches to:
(a) supporting the Global South to develop its own long-term vision for South-South cooperation and a global institutional arrangement as envisioned by the South Summit;
(b) designing the full-fledged GSSD Expo and WACAP Forum, both of which have been rescheduled for the first quarter 2016 to be held in Macao, as well as other global South-South cooperation initiatives that have been called for by Member States; and,
(c) developing a more effective Global South-South support architecture that supports the South’s own vision and initiatives based on the multi-stakeholder partnerships approach.
The Vienna Programme of Action recognized that renewed and strengthened partnerships between LLDCs, transit countries and development partners will be crucial for the successful implementation of the Programme through mobilizing ODA, aid for trade, technical and capacity-building support, as well as South-South and triangular cooperation and private sector collaborations.
