Regional perspectives on technical
cooperation: Asia and the Pacific
The paper focuses on the trends in technical cooperation during the last ten years, results
achieved in the priorities agreed on for the Asia–Pacific Decent Work Decade, expenditure rates,
key donors for the region and an outlook for resource mobilization through new modalities,
including South–South and triangular cooperation (SSTC). This is the second in a series of
reviews on technical cooperation in the regions, following one on Africa submitted to the
Governing Body in March 2012 (GB.313/POL/8).
The Governing Body is invited to request the Office to submit at its 319th Session (October
2013) a regional resource mobilization strategy and action plan for Asia and the Pacific (see draft
decision in paragraph 39).
