UNOSSC is seeking through this report to broaden the scope of thinking and facilitate wider
knowledge exchanges on development successes and lessons learned across the Arab States.
The report provides an overview of the national and regional development priorities of the Arab
States and assesses South-South cooperation within Arab States and between Arab States and
other countries of the Global South. It identifies South-South cooperation trends and challenges
as well as several models of national and regional Arab South-South cooperation. It further outlines concrete measures to advance Arab South-South cooperation for sustainable development.
