The South-South Meeting Point

The “South-South Meeting Point” is a multilingual, interactive virtual space where people from different countries can meet, engage, exchange and cooperate within the approach of South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) towards the advancement of the ILO agenda and the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals. Its main goal is to increase the levels of connectivity and interactivity among actors interested in implicating themselves in this kind of international collaboration and network building.

The South-South Meeting Point was developed in 2016 with the support of the ILO Partnerships and Field Support Department (PARDEV) and ILO Turin in the framework of the 1st ILO Academy on South-South and Triangular Cooperation. In 2018, the ILO Governing Body paper on South-South and triangular cooperation and decent work (GB.332/POL/4) mentions the South-South Meeting Point as an implementation component of ILO SSTC strategy 2012-17 and defines it as a knowledge management tool which provides access to a wealth of knowledge and resources related to SSTC and decent work.
