South-South knowledge exchange has become the most important tenant and the most dynamic pillar of South-South and triangular cooperation. Developing countries are increasingly recognizing the sharing of information and good practices on South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSC and TrC) as a viable pathway to address common transnational challenges and to accelerate progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This paper discusses a series of innovations that took place in the field of social protection in the “global South”. It uses a broad definition of social protection in order to identify the different experiences of expansion and adaptation of the social protection systems, particularly, as a response to the financial crisis. Such approach aims at identifying the main features of these processes.

This paper aims to review monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practices from different institutions involved in SSDC/TrC in a key Southern partner, Brazil, systematizing the main lessons, opportunities and obstacles for their improvement in a post-2015 context.

English

This Briefing aims to contribute to the debate on the M&E of SSC, using the Brazilian SSC as a starting point. The issues discussed here draw from the authors’ own experience evaluating Brazilian cooperation initiatives5 and further explore some issues raised during the event “Dialogues on South-South Cooperation”.

This brief seeks to identify approaches to SSC results assessment led or supported by Governments of the South. It explores how some Southern partners are conducting initiatives to assess the results of SSC and whether and how these initiatives are affecting the way they conduct their SSC. Finally, the brief reflects upon the potential of such initiatives to foster the contribution of South-South cooperation to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development and Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

International cooperation for development is constantly evolving. Strengthened relationships between developing countries have fostered the development of South-South cooperation flows and, alongside an examination of the effectiveness of “Official Development Assistance” (ODA), this has bolstered an understanding of the importance of finding new approaches to tackle the challenges that development presents.
