The GSSD Academy Solution Centre
The GSSD Academy Solution Centre supports both:
- Solutions providers wishing to share their ideas, technologies and
- Solution seeks
eager to find experiences that are
applicable to their context and that
have been effective in helping others
to overcome development challenges.
The GSSD Academy and its partners have documented more than 300 Southern
development solutions through the series, Sharing Innovative Experiences.
You can search documented solutions in the solution bank.

The Solution Centre:
Provides an array of tools, networks and documentation that can guide
you through the various processes of identifying, peer-reviewing, improving, documenting
and disseminating your solution based on two main strategies:
- The publication of the series,
Sharing Innovative Experiences, in
which an extensive collection of related experiences is broadly sourced, competitively
selected, peer-reviewed, published and disseminated; and
- The e-publication of
solution briefs, which provide an overview of
a development solution experience, highlighting lessons learned
as well as potential scalability and replication.
To date 20 volumes of the series Sharing
have been published. The series is one of the
tools to support quality documentation
of Southern development experiences.
Each volume of the series focuses on
quality solutions provided by developing
countries for a specific area of
development challenges. The production
of the series engages institutional
partners specialized in the thematic
area to source, select,
peer-review and publish the case
studies from practitioners, usually from
government agencies that actually
carried out the work. The collection of
case studies is available on line.

In all cases, the publication of development solutions undergoes several layers of
peer-review and quality-assurance proccesses. Peer learning is emphasized in all steps
in such a way that the process itself becomes as important as the final result.
The more than 300 Southern development solutions documented include important contributions
from a diverse group of developing countries, as indicated in the graph:
