South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC)

South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) is becoming a seamless part of IFAD’s country programming processes, a key dimension of its operating model and an integral part of its core business of investment loans and grants under the Debt Sustainability Framework and research grants.

As a partner in triangular cooperation, IFAD will play a more significant role as a knowledge-broker for SSTC by facilitating opportunities for sharing relevant innovations, technologies, methodologies and lessons between policymakers, development practitioners, and the private sector. IFAD plans to strengthen its comparative advantage and expand its work in this area regarding both knowledge-based cooperation and investment promotion, seeing it as an integral part of its business model and its country programming process.

IFAD supports SSTC activities at various level of engagement: (i) at the policy level, by supporting exchanges of public policy approaches that have led to signed agreement; (ii) at the regional and interregional level, by supporting several initiatives for making proven agricultural techniques and other solutions available for adoption; and (ii) at the project level by facilitating peer-to-peer exchanges.
