About ECIS Solutions

Welcome to the mapping tool for South-South Cooperation Solutions and Mechanisms in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). In the Europe and the CIS region, the rise of several emerging economies has driven an increase in South-South cooperation and produced a great variety and intensity of South-South exchanges in the region. The mapping portal provides a compendium of effective solutions tested in developing and transition countries in Europe and the CIS. The solution types illustrate successful practices that focus on important areas of sustainable development:

  • Poverty eradication
  • Food security
  • Public-private partnerships
  • Green-technology transfer
  • Economic growth
  • Industrial innovation
  • Green economies
  • Global health

Development actors, including public and private sector, civil society and academia, as well as international agencies, can easily share their successful practices by documenting their solutions on the portal. The portal provides a space for a variety of potential partners interested in replicating or supporting exchange between countries and institutions to interact.

This mapping tool is intended to provide a one-stop shop access to practical, easy-to-use expertise on the existing South-South Cooperaton Solutions and Mechanisms in Europe and the CIS, to be used by the government institutions, non-government organisations, as well as development partners and the United Nations agencies, funds and programmes active in the region in their work aimed at advancing South-South Cooperation in the region in compliance with the provisions of the High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation. The mapping tool also offers an opportunity for sharing analytical information aimed at better understanding of the existing regional trends in South-South Cooperation, as well as the capacity gaps that prevent the countries in the regions from taking full advantage of the potential benefits of South-South Cooperation.
