ACP: India shares South-South cooperation experience

Representatives of African, Caribbean and Pacific countries in Brussels joined in on a stimulating discussion on South-South cooperation, during a special presentation by one of India’s leading experts on the issue, at ACP House on Wednesday 13 January. Director General of the New Delhi-based think-tank, Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), Professor Sachin Chaturvedi presented his new book titled The Logic of Sharing: Indian Approach to South-South Cooperation, in the presence of the ACP Secretary General H.E Dr. Patrick Gomes, the Ambassador of India to the EU H.E Mr. Manjeev Singh Puri, ACP diplomats, representatives of the European Commission and several academics, including Prof. Doris Schroeder (University of Central Lancashire) and Dr. James Mackie (ECDPM). The publication has been welcomed as an important contribution in bridging the gap in concrete data about South-South cooperation, defined by the United Nations as “a broad framework for collaboration among countries of the South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains… [whereby] developing countries share knowledge, skills, expertise and resources to meet their development goals through concerted efforts.” SSC may involve two or more developing countries, and can take place on a bilateral, regional, sub-regional or interregional basis. Prof. Chaturvedi’s research underscores the rationale behind India’s development cooperation with other Southern countries, which is distinct from traditional North-South cooperation as it is known today. Emphasis is placed on mutual gain and commitment by the countries involved, freedom from conditionalities, and policy coherence.
