UNEP SSC Exchange Mechanism launch receives global media coverage
What do a biomass project at a Kenyan sugar factory, sustainable mining in Sierra Leone and orang-utan conservation in the rainforests of Borneo have in common?

All three are among a host of initiatives included in a new online database from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which aims to strengthen partnerships between sustainable development projects in developing countries.

“This new initiative is the latest development in UNEP’s ongoing efforts to support South-South cooperation and capacity-building,” the Deputy Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), Amina Mohamed, said at the launch of the mechanism at UN Headquarters in New York.

South-South cooperation refers to the exchange of technology, skills, resources and information between governments, organizations and individuals in the developing world.
