PICA participation in a webinar about the role of international cooperation agencies in the challenges and opportunities of South-South and triangular cooperation in the context of the COVID-19 crisis
The United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC), the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF) organized the webinar with the participation of international cooperation agencies.
This event brought together different stakeholders in South-South and triangular cooperation to discuss the relevance and challenges of this modality of cooperation, which aims to join the efforts of actors from the South and the North to respond to global challenges.
PICA discussed the role it played in supporting Palestinian efforts at the national level in cooperation with the private sector and United Nations organizations working in Palestine in preventing and limiting the spread of COVID19, in particular through a national awareness campaign and mobilizing financial support to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. PICA’s cooperation with Palestinian refugees’ communities and embassies to reflect their role in facing COVID19 through a program on Palestine TV has also been discussed.
PICA will start a number of development programs in cooperation with IsDB, UNDP, UNOSSC and other partners for the benefit of a number of member states during the coming period.
