Issue Brief: China’s Climate Change South-South Cooperation: History and Future Trends
South-South cooperation in international development is now widely recognized as an important complement to North-South cooperation, and is rapidly growing as part of efforts in addressing climate change. The United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation defines South-South cooperation as “…a broad framework for collaboration among developing countries in political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains, through which developing countries share knowledge, skills, expertise and resources to meet their development goals through concerted efforts”.
This Issue Brief will explore China’s response to climate change and South-South cooperation, and discuss UNDP’s global study- 'More Money, More Impact? China's Climate Change South-South Cooperation to Date and Future Trends'.
