1- Supporting South-South cooperation is one of the fundamental goals of the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development.
2- During its first year of operation, EAPD had worked on the following axes to support South-South cooperation:
A) Strengthening South-South cooperation frameworks
B) Signing Memoranda of Understanding with countries of the South
C) Participating in international fora focusing on South-South cooperation:
The EAPD has participated in several South-South cooperation meetings; such as meetings of the steering committee of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (New York: September 2014, The Hague and Brussels: January 2015), the meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations on the preparation for the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (New York: November 2014); in addition to the meeting of the Effective Development Cooperation organized by the United Nations Development Programme UNDP (Addis Ababa: December 2014). These fora present an opportunity to showcase EAPD activities as a model for cooperation among countries of the South.
D) Contributing to the spread of the best practices among countries of the South (e.g. the national experience in the fight against poverty and support of youth projects)
