Engaging Private Actors to Achieve the 2030 Agenda: Learning from South-South and Triangular Cooperation
The BRICS Policy Center organized the roundtable Engaging Private Actors to Achieve the 2030 Agenda: Learning from South-South and Triangular Cooperation under the auspices of The Second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40). The side-event took place at the Meliá Recoleta Plaza Hotel, in Buenos Aires, on March 20.
The roundtable brought together participants from the BAPA+40 Conference, including development cooperation partners, private partners, development practitioners, as well as civil society, trade unions, think tanks and academia. It was divided in two parts: Engaging the Private Sector through South-South and Triangular Co-operation and Multi-stakeholder partnerships: learning from South-South Cooperation Partners.
Building on a series of policy dialogues since the 2015 agreements, the side-event aimed to contribute to the four sub-themes of BAPA +40 by presenting and discussing different approaches, challenges and opportunities in engaging private actors through South-South and Triangular Cooperation; to share experiences and best practices for assessing effectiveness and the development impact of partnership arrangements of South-South and Triangular Co-operation partners with private actors with a view to also reaching those furthest behind; and to encourage more systematic learning and inclusive dialogue that leads to scaling up successful partnerships with private actors. A discussion paper was produced to guide the dialogue, as well as three factsheets: (i) Triangular Cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean: paving the way to Leave No One Behind, (ii) SSC and the 2030 Agenda: Adopting and adapting the LNOB approach e (iii) Private Sector Engagement through Development Cooperation (PSE).
DCD-OECD, Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) and German Development Institute (DIE) co-organized the roundtable.
