A New Era

Though launched in 1995 by the UN Development Programme, the World Alliance of Cities Against Poverty moved, in 2014, to the UN Office for South-South Cooperation.  This shift is heralding new opportunities to build upon important synergies for strengthening triangular and south-south cooperation among traditional donors, emerging donors and partner cities – a goal that is central to the WACAP mission, and in the full spirit and mandate of UNOSSC.
