The workshop gathered a group of 11 researchers from Southern academic institutions of 6 countries which are currently drafting case studies on South-South and Triangular Knowledge Exchange, informing, under the umbrella of theTask Team on South-South Cooperation, policy recommendations and good practices for the Busan High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness and the G20 development agenda.
With the support of the Asian Development Bank Institute and strong involvement of Indonesia, the TT-SSC co-chair, the workshop was an opportunity to share the results of more than 30 ongoing case studies and debate the good practices and lessons learned that these experiences leave for policy-makers and future South-South initiatives.
In addition, the workshop participants endorsed the Bangkok Call, a joint statement positioning Southern academia as a key learning partner in the knowledge exchange agenda, hand-in-hand with policy-makers and practitioners. Details on the Bangkok Call will be shared early next week.
