Workshop on South-South and Technological Cooperation for Climate Action and Sustainable Development (13 july 2018, singapore)

With entry into force of the Paris Agreement under the UNFCCC, countries move progressively towards getting ready for its effective implementation. In the context of supporting developing countries’ nationally-determined actions to address climate change and achieve sustainable development, the role of South-South and Triangular cooperation becomes more important.

The workshop is organised by the UN Office for South-South Cooperation and the UNFCCC Technology Executive Committee in conjunction with the Asia Pacific climate week, held in Singapore from 10 to 13 July 2018.

The workshop aims at enhancing the understanding and awareness of the potential of South-South and Triangular cooperation in the Asia Pacific region, and gain insight on how to make full use of the critical and complementary role of South-South and Triangular cooperation to overcome shared challenges and accelerate progress towards sustainable development and implementation of the Paris Agreement.
