"Brussels 18 April, 2012/ ACP: An outline of initial actions aimed towards building a system for South-South (SSC) and Triangular cooperation (TrC) has been drawn up by a working group of multilateral partners, including the ACP Group, after a key summit on the issue last month.


Among other initiatives, the Building Block on South-South and Triangular Cooperation will look at conducting a mapping exercise of current forums, models and mechanisms of SSC and TrC, with an aim of producing a “Menu of Practices” and a set of referential guidelines for SSC and TrC.

 

More broadly, the document draws on four major areas of work, including (i) Developing capacities that can allow countries’ involvement in SSC and TrC; (ii) Promoting “learning activities” from Middle Income countries and other Southern partners; (iii) Learning from the knowledge sharing methods used by multilateral organisations and improving access to this information; and (iv) Forming a monitoring and evaluation framework on the contribution of SSC and TrC to global development..."

"In Dominican Republic, arid conditions and land degradation coincide geographically in the region bordering Haiti. This area is subject to a high migratory flow that puts additional pressure on the land’s coping capacity.

 

This scenario has led the Global Mechanism (GM) of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) to work with the Government of Dominican Republic to develop a programme of work aiming at increasing bi-national cooperation with Haiti in combating land degradation in the Caribbean. The programme of work is part of a series of South-South cooperation activities developed by scope|acp in the Caribbean to support the Partnership Initiative for Sustainable Land Management (PISLM)..."

Table ronde: le renforcement de la coopération et des partenariats pour le commerce et le développement passe par l’étape régionale, selon des experts

Table ronde: le renforcement de la coopération et des partenariats pour le commerce et le développement passe par l’étape régionale, selon des experts | Cooperación Sur-Sur y Triangular en los Organismos Multilaterales de Desarrollo | Scoop.it

"DOHA, QATAR, 24 avril -- Dix experts, dont quatre ministres et le Directeur général de l’Organisation mondiale du commerce (OMC), ont examiné ce matin les moyens par lesquels il serait possible de « renforcer toutes les formes de coopération et de partenariats pour le commerce et le développement, notamment la coopération Nord-Sud, Sud-Sud et triangulaire », thème de la troisième table ronde organisée dans le cadre des travaux de la treizième Conférence des Nations Unies sur le commerce et le développement (CNUCED XIII), qui se tient actuellement à Doha, au Qatar.

Cette discussion, qui a permis d’identifier les mécanismes de coopération commerciale à tous les niveaux favorisant une croissance équitable et durable pour tous, a mis en évidence le caractère essentiel de la coopération régionale, notamment au niveau du continent africain.

 

Pour lancer le débat, M. Supachai Panitchpakdi, Secrétaire général de la CNUCED, a appelé à mettre en place un programme mondial cohérent pour renforcer les trois formes essentielles de coopération pour le développement, soulignant que cette question, qui était une priorité de la CNUCED dans les années 1960 et 1970, est redevenue d’actualité. Nous devons notamment nous mettre d’accord pour réduire le niveau des émissions de gaz à effet de serre, a dit M. Supachai Panitchpakdi, évoquant à cet égard les débats qui auront lieu lors de la prochaine Conférence des Nations Unies sur le développement durable, prévue à Rio de Janeiro, au Brésil, au mois de juin prochain.

 

Le Secrétaire général de la CNUCED a proposé une série de mesures visant notamment à promouvoir les actions au niveau régional, afin de favoriser, par exemple, la gestion conjointe par plusieurs pays des ressources en eau. Il a aussi conseillé de mieux évaluer les accords Nord-Sud qui constituent une nouvelle génération des accords de libre échange, comme ceux existant ou encore en négociation dans le domaine de la propriété intellectuelle. Il faut en outre accroître la coopération technique entre les pays en développement, a-t-il dit, faisant valoir qu’ils peuvent tirer parti de leurs expériences mutuelles dans le domaine agricole. Il a cité, à cet égard, l’exemple du Brésil qui a une bonne expérience dans le domaine de l’usage des pesticides dans la promotion de l’agriculture.

 

Pour le Secrétaire général de la CNUCED, il est également nécessaire d’apporter une aide au commerce aux pays arabes sortant des bouleversements générés par le « printemps arabe ». Enfin, il a suggéré d’aider aussi le secteur privé en y favorisant les investissements responsables.

 

Au cours de la discussion, animée par le Ministre des entreprises publiques, de la politique scientifique et de la coopération au développement, et chargé de la politique des grandes villes de la Belgique, les intervenants ont analysé les trois niveaux de coopération et de partenariats contribuant au développement, avant de faire des suggestions et de procéder à des échanges d’expériences qui ont fait leurs preuves sur le terrain.

 

Le débat a aussi été l’occasion de soulever des questions sensibles comme l’absence d’accords de libre échange entre l’Union européenne et le groupe des pays du Golfe, les impasses dans lesquelles se trouvent les pourparlers du Cycle de négociations commerciales de Doha et les négociations d’un nouveau cadre de partenariat commercial entre l’Union européenne et le Groupe des États d’Afrique, des Caraïbes et du Pacifique (ACP). Certains intervenants, comme le Ministre du commerce et de l’industrie de l’Afrique du Sud, ont vivement dénoncé les subventions, les barrières tarifaires et non tarifaires et les contingentements qui faussent le fonctionnement des échanges agricoles et bloquent l’exportation des produits agricoles des pays en développement vers les marchés des pays du Nord. Quand on parle de négocier ou de conclure des « accords de libre échange » ou « des accords de partenariat économique », il faudrait veiller à « ne pas créer un cadre mettant en compétition un éléphant et un moustique », ont fait remarquer des intervenants.

Inputs of the Civil Society Declaration to UNCTAD XIII about South‐South Cooperation

"Strengthening all forms of cooperation and partnerships for trade and development, including North‐South, South‐South and triangular cooperation"

 

"...

39  South‐South cooperation is central to collective action on the part of developing
countries in the international arena and to development processes in the South and globally. However, there is a need to rethink regional cooperation and South‐South cooperation outside the mainstream model of liberalization.

South‐South cooperation should use trade and investment to support productive and decent‐job generating growth and not predatory trading and investment. As noted for example in the UNCTAD Least Developed Countries Report, 2010 [Table 32 page 141] economic relations with major developing country partners can pose a number of challenges and threats similar to those that may affect North‐South ones, including: adverse impact on domestic output and jobs; few backward and forward linkages with the domestic economy; limited domestic enterprise upgrades; displacement of small farmers; jeopardizing domestic food security, increased poverty, among others.


40  An important distinction must be made between “South‐South Integration (SSI)” (in terms of trade and investment relations) and “South‐South Cooperation (SSC)” in terms of policy coordination and cooperation built around a development vision that is democratic and inclusive, rooted in the normative principles of equity, social progress, complementarity, solidarity, mutual benefit, sharing of resources and policy innovation among developing countries, and respect for sovereignty. SSC must serve to foster more virtuous development paths and prevent the replication of the biases and asymmetries associated with North‐South relations.
