‘As the world seeks to ramp up COVID-19 response and recovery and tackle the existential threat of climate change, South-South and triangular cooperation is more essential than ever,’ said Guterres.

‘The COVID-19 pandemic is the most complex immediate challenge facing our world and it is undermining hard won social, economic and environmental gains,’ said Guterres. ‘In such trying times, the solidarity that underpins South-South cooperation has once again proven vital for developing countries.’

Guterres called for ‘building inclusive and resilient societies, empowering women and youth, leveraging digital, greener and bluer initiatives, and expanding sustainable financing.’

‘Throughout the pandemic, countries of the Global South have shared their knowledge and resources to support response and recovery efforts,’ the secretary-general said.

Noting that South-South and triangular cooperation offer concrete solutions to these shared challenges, he said that ‘the United Nations will continue to support these efforts – including through our System-wide Strategy on South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development.’
