March 16, 2022

This publication on “Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation in LDCs: From the Istanbul Programme of Action to Achieving Sustainable and Resilient Development” showcases 80 important examples of effective action. Responding to the call in the Buenos Aires outcome document of the Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation for the United Nations Development System to share good practices and experiences from the South, especially with LDCs,4 this report has been jointly developed by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC), the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the United Nations Office of the High Representative for LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS (UN-OHRLLS), in partnership with the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD).

Three transitions stand out from the good practices presented in this publication, which also reflect some of the main challenges and opportunities faced by the LDCs.
