South-South in Action: g7+ Fragile-to-Fragile Cooperation

March 13, 2019

The g7+ is a voluntary association of countries that are or have been affected by conflict and are now in transition to the next stage of development. It is a unique intergovernmental organization that brings together 20 member States from diverse regions, cultures, traditions and historical contexts in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific.

The focus of this edition is Fragile-to-Fragile (F2F) cooperation. Developed by the g7+, F2F cooperation describes the support that g7+ member States provide to each other as they transition from fragility and conflict to peace and stability. Its principles and activities are inspired by, and closely aligned with, South-South cooperation. It is an important complementary modality to North-South cooperation

As evidenced in this publication, F2F cooperation has much to contribute to peacebuilding and State- building. Through activities including sharing experiences, engaging in knowledge exchange, and providing financial assistance, F2F activities are directly contributing to national development objectives, and the creation of a more peaceful world.
