Welcome Message from Mr. Jorge Chediek, UNOSSC Director and Envoy of the Secretary-General on South-South Cooperation
UNOSSC’s Division for Arab States, Europe and the CIS is proud to present its quarterly E-Newsletter.
The UN Office aims to become a knowledge hub providing advisory and consulting services to Member States, UN entities, IGOs, NGOs and other stakeholders on South-South and triangular cooperation. The E-Newsletter will allow you to read about the extensive work our Division for Arab States, Europe and the CIS is doing. Our team is providing opportunities to developing countries to build partnerships for exchanging knowledge and experiences on achieving sustainable development.
During the last two decades, developing countries, including those in the region, have accumulated substantial experience and acquired expertise, know-how and technology. These countries are now in a position to share these valuable experiences at the regional and global levels. Owing to this accumulated knowledge, coupled with increased prosperity in developing countries, the volume of effective demand-driven South-South/East-East cooperation for development has increased and is receiving the attention that it deserves.
I look forward to this E-Newsletter Service to assist as a reference for practitioners and policymakers to the benefits of innovative and sustainable South-South strategies in the region.
- Jorge Chediek
