The Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD Expo) was the FIRST EVER Expo solely from the South and for the South. It showcased successful Southern-grown development solutions (SDSs) to address the need to meet Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It took place from Oct 28 - Nov 1, 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya at the United Nations Office at Nairobi.
It was designed as a concrete response to the strong commitment made by the Secretary-General and the UNDP Administrator to help the global South realize its shared aspirations for achieving sustainable and equitable development through the sharing and transfer of SDSs, with the support of the donor community and the multilateral system under innovative triangular and public-private partnership (PPP) arrangements. It also constituted one of the UN Office’s three global and United Nations system-wide South-South support platforms.
This year's GSSD Expo was no doubt unique as it was not only held for the first time in the South to bring solutions for the South by the South, it also gave people a chance to be a virtual participant from anywhere in the world.
