NAM’s efforts towards the Sustainable Development of Global South

The economical and political landscape of the south countries have always been a subject of discussion in the summits organized under United Nations and Non-Aligned Movement. Following the summit of United Nations scheduled in New York from Sep 25- Sep 27, 2015 targeted on meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), NAM has encouraged to amend the development goals for the sustainable development of South-South Cooperation between the countries. With the course of time, development agendas for strengthening the south have always been crucial ahead of the official mandate. Since the member states are identical in both UN and NAM, the development programs are easy to communicate between them.
Referring to the recent summit, NAM has supported UN’s mandate to promote and supports its member state in meeting the MDGs set to achieve by the end of 2015. The mission towards a strong global South has been alive since its inception in 1960’s: as a huge canvas of initiatives to meet the requirements of the countries without harming the natural resources. Following this, NAM has not only supported the initiatives by UN, but also has been nurturing the mission with its reliable mechanism to meet the challenges.
It has encouraged the promotion of technology, resources and knowledge among the nations. In 1974, General Assembly took the mission to next level under the U.N Development Program, by setting up Special Unit for South-South Cooperation. The cooperation was constructed as a clearinghouse for easy communication between the nations. Several world leaders stepped forward to collaborate and adopt MDGs. Later with mutual decision, September 12 was declared as the U.N Day for South-South Cooperation following the new cooperation with the civil society and private sectors. NAM has been successful in implementing various periodic sets of development agendas among its member states. During the 16th Summit of High-Level Commission on South-South Cooperation in 2010, the world leaders welcomed the launch of International Organization for South-South Cooperation (IOSSC).
The cooperation brought comprehensive set of ideas towards global South, which ensured the real value of global cooperation among the world leaders. Collaborating with the initiative, NAM has encouraged its member states to bring global initiatives varying in national interests. The plan is to cooperate in different dimensions of the developing agendas covering maximum of the affected areas. In the successive course of time, during the 68th session of U.N General Assembly, another initiative South-South Steering Committee for Sustainable Development (SS-SCSD) was launched with multiple set of programs covering the international development, politics and economy.
Several world leaders from the member states have adopted the array of initiatives and planning to bring a new body of cooperation bringing the advanced way of tackling the global scenarios. NAM has brought this idea of initiating global programs with a difference to help the developing nation empowering every sector of the system and bringing more opportunities to join the nexus of this cooperation. With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Programs, NAM is expected to collaborate with the progressive implementation of measures by United Nations. New ideas will be taken into play along with the new initiatives between the organizations. The MDGs will be a primary target to achieve stability in the South-South collaboration, where the programs will target on the bilateral and multilateral cooperation within the economies. With the ever-increasing complexity of global conundrums, doubling the amount of efforts will help to strengthen the trade, commerce, and technical cooperation between the nations. It will open many avenues to foster the public-private partnership between the nations and to realize the objectives of the development problem. With major changes in the growing economies, NAM needs to keep a track on the initiatives incepting in the international community. Through several updated programs, the primary development should be meeting the needs of latest technology for strong communication to stay connected with the programs.
