"SouthSouthNorth (SSN) is a network-based non-profit organisation sharing two decades of experience in the fields of climate change and social development. We directly pursue structural poverty reduction in Sub Saharan Africa, Asia and Latin America by building Southern capacity and delivering community based mitigation and adaptation projects. The former mitigate climate change by reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and the latter assist communities to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.

SouthSouthNorth leads through projects to build capacity, to ensure the adequate and appropriate receipt and transfer of technologies and to contribute positively to the international policy environment.

SouthSouthNorth contributed to the development of the International Gold Standard label which ensures the highest standards of practice throughout CDM project development and implementation. Our projects include the Kuyasa low-cost urban housing energy upgrade project, the first CDM project in Africa and the world’s first Gold Standard project."
