This document was prepared by the Steering Committee responsible for organizing the Bogota High Level Event on South‐South Cooperation and Capacity Development. It contains ideas which might prove useful to enhance the practice of South‐South Cooperation. It is presented to the participants for their consideration and reference.
We, representatives of partner countries, donors, multilateral and bilateral development organizations, parliaments and civil society,recognize that South‐South cooperation (SSC)
is an important instrument of effective and inclusive partnerships. We have met in Bogota, Colombia, at the High Level Event on South‐South Cooperation and Capacity Development, to acknowledge its role in building capacity and advancing development, take stock of the lessons of experience and identify challenges, and outline the way
forward. Our purpose was to implement the mandate of the Accra Agenda for Action and promote a greater role for, and increased effectiveness in, SSC.
With this in view, we commit ourselves to promote and implement good practices from SSC and capacity development to support countries in achieving the Millennium Development Goals and tackling emerging global development challenges, recognizing that gender equality, respect for human rights, and environmental sustainability are
cornerstones for achieving enduring impacts on the lives of people, particularly poor and marginalized populations.
