Prospects for South-South Cooperation in the ESCWA Region
آفاق التعاون بين بلدان الجنوب في منطقة الإسكوا

The study Prospects for South-South Cooperation in the ESWA Region reviews the current status of cooperation between ESCWA member countries and explores potential areas for future collaboration. The experience of countries in other developing regions has demonstrated that South-South cooperation has the potential to play an important role in the generation of employment, the alleviation of poverty and the attainment of inclusive, sustained economic development through technical assistance, knowledge exchange and technology transfer. The study represents the first exploration by ESCWA of the potential for greater cooperation between member countries and other countries of the global South. It has been conducted with a view to broadening the understanding of the potential of South-South cooperation across a number of sectors and is intended to pave the way for further research in this growing field.
