The Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40) in Buenos Aires, Argentina in March 2019 renewed commitment towards development partnerships more so in the backdrop of the ambitious Agenda 2030. The Outcome Document of the BAPA+40 makes significant contribution towards suggesting a way forward for development partnerships in the paradigm of South-South Cooperation (SSC) and Triangular Development Cooperation (TDC) keeping in view the economic and political transitions that have taken place since the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action for Promoting and Implementing Technical Cooperation among developing countries (TCDC), commonly known as BAPA.

With that background, this event will focus on three key issues:

  • Reflecting on the state of SSC/TDC in different regions for experience sharing

  • Challenges for SSC/TDC in fulfilling Agenda 2030

  • The roadmap from BAPA+40
