In collaboration with the UN Office for South-South Cooperation, UNDP presents this joint publication "Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation: Scaling up Made-in-Africa Solutions". This publication has codified African South-South development solutions and innovative solutions that have the potential to be scaled up in peer African countries, covering key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)-related issues, such as governance, education, climate change, disaster risk reduction, clean water, renewable energy, agro-food, environment, digital finance and inclusiveness.
The African development solutions showcased in this publication are expected to not only inspire more innovative made-in-Africa and African-tailored good solutions to addressing development challenges in Africa, but also facilitate knowledge sharing and cooperation among a wider range of partners of the global South, including governments, the private sector, civil society, non-governmental organizations and the general public.
2020, a year of opposing narratives.
Influenced in large part by the pandemic, everything we knew and loved changed.
Our work and those we support suddenly flung into a new world. One with little contact, narrowing opportunities and many vulnerable people.
This spurred a new approach for many and for us an urgency to intensify support to those in the region and cushion the effects of the pandemic.
Now, as the world pivots from response to recovery, we take a moment to reflect on the year 2020 – our resilient team, our achievements, the challenges that remain and most importantly, those whom we serve.
This is the UNDP Sub-Regional Hub for West and Central Africa in 2020.
