ILO launches its new “Meeting Point” on South-South and Triangular Cooperation

The ILO “Meeting Point” on South-South and triangular cooperation was modernized and now presents a series of new features. Its interface was enhanced to become more user-friendly, intuitive and dynamic, as well as to automatically adapt to smartphones and tablets. In addition, the new library provides an easier and simpler access to a considerable amount of materials.

The South-South Meeting Point is a multilingual, interactive virtual space where people from different countries can meet, engage, exchange and cooperate within the approach of South-South and triangular cooperation (SSTC) towards the advancement of the ILO agenda and the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals. Its main goal is to increase the levels of connectivity and interactivity among actors interested in implicating themselves in this kind of international collaboration and network building.

In 2018, the ILO Governing Body paper on South-South and triangular cooperation and decent work (GB.332/POL/4) mentions the South-South Meeting Point as an implementation component of ILO SSTC strategy 2012-17 and defines it as a knowledge management tool which provides access to a wealth of knowledge and resources related to SSTC and decent work. It will also be a significant tool for the promotion of the Decent Work Agenda in UN system-wide consultations related to the forthcoming Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40) to be held in Argentina in 2019.

At the moment, the South-South Meeting Point is available in four languages (English, French, Spanish and Portuguese) and contains:

The ILO has built a long tradition and developed a thorough expertise on South-South and triangular cooperation and believes that tools such as the Meeting Point can help to strengthen continental and inter-continental networks for development cooperation and for the advancement of the Agenda 2030.
