Introduction THE SOUTH - SOUTH COOPERATION modality A FOREIGN POLICY AND REGIONAL INTEGRATION TOOL, AS A WAY OF LIFE:

In October, 2010, the Office to the Technical Secretary for International Cooperation – SETECI - launched the first Ecuadorian technical assistance catalog for South-South Cooperation Modality. The mentioned work posed one first serious and technical challenge for both this institution and the Ecuadorian government, to set into motion the dream of political vindication of the South countries before the structural disparities in the international field, which means making a radical change in the way cooperation is conceived, since it takes into account all developmental challenges the region is facing. We, as a country and as a region have progressed a lot since then, our capabilities, knowledge and technologies have become the tools to jointly build good living. Now, we are aiming at achieving an international cooperation paradigm “to help each others as neighbors”, far from the unilateralism model. This new concept requires that we see ourselves as the cooperating parties in a shared objective in our region, just as we do in our daily lives. This can be seen in our neighbor-

hood, our community, our province, and our village. In this sense, we are building the cooperation paradigm as a way of life, with neighborhood associations coming together to defeat those big common problems. This utilizes a sovereign but technical vision, as well as a vision of excellence. We have plenty new successful experiences in Ecuador to offer the world. We have generated new capabilities that we would like to share especially with our brothers and sisters from the south; those who are pursuing, just as we are, the dream to help our people leave poverty behind. We are pleased to publish a new Ecuadorian Technical Assistance Catalog, available to you all. This catalog has been built jointly with the institutions that are part of the citizen revolution government. It is part of a beautiful cooperation, coordination and cross - institutional dialog exercise. In this second edition, we are showing the expertise in several environments: planning the “cities of knowledge” (Yachay), biotechnology, seed processing, also on several social aspects, 13

he Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility (Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores y Movilidad Humana (MREMH)) is responsible for governing the international policy and managing coordination of the same, Latin American integration and human mobility in response to the interests of Ecuadorians, before whom it will have to answer on their decisions and actions taken in complying with the constitutional rights and the regulations of international law within the framework of national plans for growth. 64

The Ministry plans to be a public institution that is modern, transparent, efficient and with a management system oriented towards the service to the citizens; responsible for promoting policies for endogenous growth in networking, cooperating and exchanging with the rest of the world; and to execute foreign trade in the diplomatic-political fields, Latin American integration, and human mobility in response to the interests of the Ecuadorian people to whom they report permanently.

A. Description of the offer • This initiative to construct the policy for refuge identifies the investment priorities in the northern border and links the strategies and programs from the various departments of the State.

Housing incentive systems

T

he Ministry of Urban Development and Housing (Ministerio de Desarrollo Urbano y Vivienda (MIDUVI)) is promoting a new approach for institutional actions under a «Urban Revolution» paradigm which seeks to make possible «cities for Good Living»: «inclusive, planned, organized, safe, equitable cities that can offer quality of life within a friendly setting that is environmentally sustainable, and that are built through democratic and participative processes». These premises commit MIDUVI to implement a territorial policy as well as an urban policy to promote an organized growth of the big cities, a sustained growth of the intermediate ci76

ties and a stable drive towards growth and consolidation of small towns. In order to achieve that, MIDUVI presents its new «Social Housing Incentive System», with the intent to consolidate a sustainable housing market targeted at the households with low income within the national territory. The proposal makes it possible to make the social housing market a dynamic one through credit to offer and demand, and by delivering a Housing Bonus, thus setting the goal of generating an average of 30 thousand houses a year for the next seven years under a cross- ministry articulation process with the participation of real estate promoters.

A. Description of the offer • Starting in 1988, the country developed a social support policy in the housing field which is monitored through the Housing Incentive System (SIV). Its goal is to overcome the national housing deficit. Upon executing this project, a system to grant financial support is put in place to support social projects for urban, rural and marginal housing. These projects go from delivering popular houses with very low or zero contributions, up to giving bonuses to help the households who have very low income to start the process of making their lands legal, going through bonuses for construction or house improvements. • All these projects have been implemented with the cooperation of the Inter - American Development Bank (IBD), the decentralized autonomous governments (GAD), realtors, housing promoters and contractors. This initiative has 14 years of experience and 434,390 households have received the benefit through the Housing Bonus. B. Forms of cooperation • Technical assistance. • Training.

Implementing small scale laboratories

Sustainable management of incidental shark capture

A. Description of the offer • Implementing small scale laboratories is an initiative aimed at multiplying the aid organizations of the Trichodermasp type, by using technology based on biocatalysts, which allows for the biological product being specific for each area, crop and even the phenological age of the plant. Production of biological products based on microorganisms has the following advantages: it controls the biological plague and disease; biological stimulants; it can generate a germoplasm bank of native microorganism; and it can use technology based on biocatalysts. • This process was conducted through an agreement between the Ministry of Agriculture, Stockbreeding, Aquaculture and Fishing (MAGAP) and the producers’ associations. MAGAP supplies all the materials and equipment needed, as well as the training courses; while the producers’ associations collaborate with the physical area where the laboratories are to operate. • The strategy is focused on supplying the producers with the biological products at a low cost and in compliance with quality standards, as well as generating the skills on the producers. One of the objectives is for the associations involved to become, in mid-term, micro - companies. This way, the initiative is carried out by generating local skills and by creating micro - companies that are to offer biological products at a low cost, by using environmentally friendly technologies and taking advantage of our biodiversity wealth. • The initiative has two years of experience, and its main product has been the Germoplasm Bank with native microorganisms.

A. Description of the offer • Technical counseling to formulate plans for the management of species, it will take the following into account: adapting international regulations, applying the local reality and developing strategies. • The initiative has five years of experience, and it has been consolidated through the active participation of fishermen.

This initiative can be achieved through an agreement among the Ministry of Agriculture, Stockbreeding, Aquaculture and Fishing (MAGAP), the decentralized autonomous governments (GAD), and the producers’ associations. • Continuous monitoring of the initiative can be done through the provincial offices of MAGAP, besides the evaluations - so far there have been three evaluations - which consist on surveys targeted to ERA’s beneficiary associations responsible for qualifying the job. • Just to mention some of the results obtained we can say: soil map has been updated; now there are thirteen artisan laboratories, and an integrated promotion is being articulated for national and international markets. The experience has been developed for three years.

A. Description of the offer • The offer consists on providing methodologies and developing computerized systems to survey information, record, monitor and publish prices.
