South-South cooperation is a broad framework for collaboration among countries of the Global South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains. It is the vehicle to accelerate development as it fosters partnerships among the developing countries, with the view of increasing volume and rate of South-South exchanges in development, peace and security, trade, finance, and technology transfer. In light of the rapid growth in diversity of development actors, particularly from the South, as well as modalities and areas of collaboration, the international development cooperation architecture is changing considerably. The actual and potential contribution of South-South and Triangular Cooperation to the achievement of 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda globally, as well as regionally in the Arab States and the Europe/CIS is thus catching more and more attention.
