JICA-RI published a booklet entitled “Tackling Global Challenges through Triangular Cooperation” on October 2013. In collaboration with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), it focuses on the “green economy.” By exhibiting good practices with complementary surveys on several key themes, the volume demonstrates that triangular cooperation is one of the most effective approaches for achieving the green economy in developing nations. The booklet has been complied as a subsequent volume of the publication titled “Scaling Up South-South and Triangular Cooperation” released at the Expo 2012.
The report is divided into Part 1 and Part 2; it has compiled the findings of joint case studies carried out by an international team composed of researchers and practitioners from development assistance agencies including both bilateral and multilateral institutions such as JICA and UN agencies and also from government organizations and NGOs in developing countries.
Part 1 on “Concepts and Practice of Triangular Cooperation,” presents the latest approaches and implementation mechanisms of South-South Cooperation (SSC) and Triangular Cooperation (TrC) to tackle global issues including the environment-friendly green economy as well as sustainable development. Part 2 showcases seven good practices of TrC broadly in the field of “green economy” such as climate change mitigation measures, disaster preventions and the biodiversity conservation, each case which illustrates success factors and lessons learned for better TrC.
The volume was disseminated during the UN Global South-South Development Expo 2013 held in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, from October 28 to November 1, 2013.
