South-South and Triangular Co-operation (SSTC) can be a vital driver of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Trade unions are strongly engaged in SSTC via programmes that cover a range of key areas to achieve the SDGs.

This brief showcases a sample of trade union SSTC programmes in those areas, illustrating direct contributions to the SDGs and highlighting the link to the Development Effectiveness Principles.

Recommendations
Trade unions recommend SSTC actors to:

  • Prioritise the Decent Work Agenda and Climate Justice related SDGs - such as 1, 5, 8, 10, 13 and 16 - in all projects and programmes; 
  • Involve trade unions and social partners in policy dialogues when defining priorities and implementation strategies, as well as when monitoring and evaluating results.
  • Support social partners’ capacity building in implementing the SDGs.
