United Nations published this video item, entitled “The Secretary-General: Video Message on the UN Day for South-South Cooperation” – below is their description.

“I am pleased to join you as you mark this UN Day for South-South Cooperation.

The COVID-19 pandemic is the most complex immediate challenge facing our world and it is undermining hard won social, economic and environmental gains.

In such trying times, the solidarity that underpins South-South cooperation has once again proven vital for developing countries.

Throughout the pandemic, countries of the Global South have shared their knowledge and resources to support response and recovery efforts.

But, together, we must do much more. We need deeper international cooperation to address the global health crisis, reduce poverty and inequality, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and avert climate catastrophe.

That means building inclusive and resilient societies, empowering women and youth, leveraging digital, greener and bluer initiatives, and expanding sustainable financing.

South-South and triangular cooperation offer concrete solutions to these shared challenges.

The United Nations will continue to support these efforts – including through our System-wide Strategy on South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development.

As the world seeks to ramp up COVID-19 response and recovery and tackle the existential threat of climate change, South-South and triangular cooperation is more essential than ever.

Thank you for your leadership and support.”
