rationale for engaging in south south cooperation
Rationale for engaging in South-South Cooperation
  • There is definitely a wealth of experiences and knowledge available within developing countries crucial and relevant for overcoming development challenges.
  • The financial crisis and the consecutive reduction of Official assistance are leading International Institutions to explore opportunity for South-south cooperation, among african countries namely between less developed countries (LDCs) to Middle Income countries (MICs) with Asia and Latin America ;
  • The main advantage relies in the replicability of development solutions and the greater willingness to take business risks in a different environment
    • Common context of development
    • Geo-climatic conditions
    • Socio-cultural similarities
  • South south cooperation is seen as aid without political ties. The Five leading countries (Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa ) decided in 2007 to engage in a structured dialogue on several issues including development, particularly in Africa.

current constraints to ssc for development
Current Constraints to SSC for development
  • Disconnect of demand and supply side
    • RMCs faced with limited institutional capacity are not fully informed of the expertise and technology and foreign direct investments, available in the South (Africa, Asia, Latin America)
  • Inadequate structure to facilitate SSC for development
    • Few countries of the South have a strategy on how to engage in SSC and/or institutional capacity to deal with this.
    • Lack of international focal point to coordinate south south cooperation and lead the implementation
    • Developing countries generally meet if forums dedicated to others Agendas

objective of ssc trust fund for africa
Objective of SSC Trust Fund for Africa

Objective of SSC TF will be to support african countries in mobilizing and taking advantage of development solutions and technical expertise available in the South.

The fund will be used to finance SSC initiatives and activities to benefit the Bank’s RMCs such as knowledge sharing, learning from best practices, know-how and approaches developed, applied and proven useful by countries in the South

Strong demand by our Regional Member Countries (RMCs) for ADB to play a catalyst role:

  • In the promotion of expertise and experiences in the South
  • In the support of technology transfers
  • In setting up development of partnerships with emerging economies
  • In broadening the development cooperation resources

timeframe resources donors
Timeframe, resources, donors…..

Actually, it was in 2008 during a MIC Conference co-organized by the ADB and World Bank in Cairo and under the request of emerging donors that the Bank was asked to play a more leading and more proactive role in the promotion of south south cooperation

Because of the convergence of South south cooperation objective and Banks strategy geared toward knowledge sharing and promotion of regional integration.

Indicative timeframe: The launch of the Fund was due since 3rd quarter of 2009

Resource requirements: US 6 million for 2010-2012 (initial estimation)

Potential donors: Contributions by traditional and emerging donors as well as by MICs in Africa.

Management: ORRU, an inter-departmental technical review committee and oversight committee consisting of representatives of contributing donors, partners and the ADB.

Eligibility: RMCs including National Institutions, Regional organization and civil society and Bank organizational units.
