Global South-South Development Expo


There is no doubt that developing countries are taking charge of their own futures, identifying problems, finding solutions and offering their homegrown solutions to the world. The Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD Expo2013) - hosted by UNEP in Nairobi, Kenya, and that runs until 1 November - is helping to harness the ever growing number of development solutions that address both existing and emerging development challenges head-on.

And for the first time, the Expo is beeing held in the global South under the overarching theme 'Building Inclusive Green Economies: South-South Cooperation for Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication'.

Bringing together high-level policymakers, solution providers, solution seekers and solution supporters, Expo2013 is an occasion to demonstrate the global collective response to relevant provisions of the Rio+20 outcome and its capacity to facilitate South-South Cooperation and an exchange of experiences with green economies.

The five-day event includes a Leadership Round Table and a series of solutions exchange forums which cover the building of inclusive green economies, clean technology and green industry, agriculture and food security, sustainable development and decent work, environment, sustainable development and poverty eradication. Throughout the Expo, the Pavilion is hosting an exhibition space for a marketplace of solutions that will bring together providers, seekers, partners and sponsors.
