Facilitating Access to Southern Development Solutions

Many Southern countries are producing innovations that are providing important contributions to their development. How to facilitate the sharing and scaling up of these development solutions?

The Global South-South Development Academy is an online action-oriented service platform that facilitates access to Southern development solutions and Southern expertise for learning and application.

The GSSD Academy offers and develops tested tools, methodologies and partnership strategies that enable practitioners and Southern partners to:

  • Identify, document and catalogue Southern development solutions with quality assurance through broad-based peer-review processes;
  • Create and maintain rosters of experts based on the principle of equal opportunity for Southern experts;
  • Establish Southern institutes: thematic sub-academies linked with centres of excellence to facilitate access to Southern knowledge, engagement of Southern networks and integration with the other platforms of the 3-in-1 support architecture.

The GSSD Academy is the first of the pillars of the integrated 3-in-1 multilateral support architecture to promote South-South cooperation
