DAA Covers developments in South-South cooperation for the biennium 2001-2002. Focuses in particular on cooperation in regard to monetary, financial, investment and trade arrangements, especially in the context of efforts towards regional and subregional integration in the South. Notes considerable progress on many fronts, as well as negative trends that in many cases reflect the volatility of international affairs during the biennium. Also notes growing participation by developing countries in North-South and South-South economic arrangements, which, however, remains uneven. Highlights the emergence of civil society and the private sector as significant players in South-South initiatives. Concludes with recommendations aimed at moving South-South cooperation forward.
