Delegates from 150 countries gathered at the headquarters of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in Nairobi on Monday to showcase and promote development solutions originating in the Global South, meaning Africa, Central and Latin America and most of Asia.

The Global South-South Development (GSSD) Expo is a powerful platform for the sharing and exchange of replicable and innovative solutions that have a significant development impact on the ground.

The five day event will focus on green economy initiatives which have improved the income of the poor, as well as the quantity and quality of jobs.
