South-South Global Assets and Technology Exchange

Support Through Partnership: Delivering As One

As a UN sponsored project, SS-GATE embodies the Secretary-General’s call to “Deliver as One”. This is not simply rhetoric. The principles of the “Delivering as One” agenda are deeply embedded in the strategic approach taken to ensure that end-users receive as much support as they need to successfully engage in meaningful and substantive exchange. Over the years, SS-GATE has forged several institutional partnerships across this broad spectrum of UN, private, public and civil society organizations with a view to consolidate this wealth of resources and make them available through the SS-GATE platform. SS-GATE thus serves not only as an exchange platform but also as an integral partnership hub to meet two related goals: 1) Leverage partners’ comparative advantages to provide value-added services to end-users; and 2) Provide a ready-made South-South exchange platform that can be used by partners to help deliver on their mandates. Below is a list of organizations that have partnered with SS-GATE. If you are interested in taking advantage of their services or in learning more about the nature of these partnerships, please send your enquiries to info@ss-gate.org.
