Building knowledge for trade and development

Video and multimedia

In this two-part multimedia resource, Richard Kozul-Wright, of UNCTAD's Unit on Economic Cooperation and Integration among Developing Countries takes a close look at cooperation among developing countries to assess how far it has advanced; whether it can help buttress developing economies against the crises and shocks that have accompanied an increasingly unregulated global economy; and how it might best contribute to building more stable development paths. He also discusses the relationship between South–South cooperation and traditional development cooperation, and whether and how it can help shift the multilateral agenda in a more developmental direction.

In part 1, Kozul-Wright gives an overview of the origins and current trends of South-South cooperation.
