Under the aegis of UNOSSC’s Cities Project, the South-South Cities Clusters Initiative aims to bring the networks of cities, institutions, and experts together in order to facilitate horizontal cooperation and exchange. The initiative enables local government representatives and other development actors to engage in thematic South-South and triangular cooperation capacity development and knowledge sharing activities for mutual benefit. Thematic areas include e-commerce, digital innovation, sustainable tourism, youth entrepreneurship, disaster risk reduction, public health, climate change, sustainable agriculture value chain development, gender equality and public services.
Thematic City Clusters
The Cities Clusters initiative is currently offering interactive spaces on seven main thematic areas. These are spaces where local government officials, institutions and experts will be able access the latest thematic news and updates, as well information on capacity development opportunities, good practices from the local level and other opportunities for knowledge exchange in a free, demand-based manner.
