South-South knowledge-sharing crucial for ending poverty and achieving the global goals

New York, September 25 - Capping off the second annual Global Goals week in New York, the Republic of Uganda and UNDP convened a special event today to look at a critical issue on the path to a more equitable future – that of transferring tested solutions and knowledge to other countries in support of their own national priorities.

Global Goals Week takes place each September, marking the anniversary of the agreement of the Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) at the United Nations. Each year, events take place across New York and bring together individuals, governments, the private sector, international organizations, civil society organizations and other partners to showcase innovative solutions and partnerships in support of the Goals. 

Adonia Ayebare, Ambassador of Uganda to the United Nations, and President of the High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation said, all developing countries, regardless of size or level of development, have accumulated knowledge that can provide cost-effective and replicable solutions to the challenges faced by other developing countries.
