ABSTRACT As member states and the United Nations (UN) prepare to come together
for the 2nd High Level Conference on South-South cooperation (SSC) forty
years after the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action (BAPA), this article
reflects on the journey South Africa has made in implementing technical
cooperation with developing countries (TCDC). Although the Apartheid
government of Pretoria was excluded from the discussions of Buenos Aires,
in the last two decades South Africa has played a major role in SSC, promoting
capacity building, exchange of experiences, and TCDC in Africa and intra-
regionally. The article will explore the degree of compliance by South Africa
with the 38 recommendations (Rec. 1-38) set out in the BAPA, and the follow
up work still required, both nationally and globally, to advance the SSC agenda.
PALABRAS CLAVE
Sudáfrica; PABA; Cooperación técnica; Cooperación Sur-Sur; África.
