South-South Global Assets and Technology Exchange (SS-GATE) system is a programme initiated by the Special Unit for South-South Cooperation (SU/SSC) at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which aims to provide a global and sustainable South-South transaction platform that facilitates market-driven and transparent exchanges of technology, assets, services and financial resources among the private sector, public sector and civil society for the inclusive growth of countries in the Global South. On the other hand, SS-GATE recognizes the importance of the involvement of the developed countries for successful global technology transfer.
The programme consists of four tracks promoting:
Track 1: Small and Medium Enterprises Technology and Assets Exchange;
Track II: Human Development Investment Exchange;
Track III: Creative Economy Projects Exchange;
Track IV: Global Climate Change Technology Exchange.
As SS-GATE, we are trying to promote industrial creation through technology and capital transfer as mandated by the UN. This is a result of the UN recognition of the short-comings in the Aid system for supporting development in developing countries.
