At the 2018 Development Cooperation Forum

On 22 May 2018, Amy Padilla, Director of IBON International, represented the organisation at the 2018 High-Level Meeting of the Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) of the UN Economic and Social Council. She gave insights from a Southern people’s perspective during a session on Southern countries’ development cooperation (known as “South-South cooperation” or SSC), stressing the history of SSC in resistance to neocolonialism; the need for genuine people’s participation in development; and how solidarity, mutual benefit and equality are important principles for development cooperation.
