Networking and Learning Together: Experiences in South-South and Triangular Cooperation in Asia
The publication documents South-South and Triangular Cooperation case studies that reflect the different policy and operational modalities from new development partners such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Singapore and Thailand. It describes efforts to facilitate Triangular Cooperation by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and other South-South Cooperation in the region, including by the ASEAN. The case studies presented outline the processes and institutions created to provide development assistance, as well as some of the challenges that these countries face as new aid providers.
The publication also shows how some United Nations bodies, namely the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have adopted strategies for using South-South and Triangular Cooperation to contribute to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
