SESRIC initiates and implements a wide-range of activities and projects on various socio-economic fields of immediate interest to the OIC Member States. In doing so, the Centre devotes a large portion of its resources to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, experience and best practices with a view to contributing to the South-South cooperation initiative within the OIC community.

The Centre plays an important role in facilitating the transfer of know-how and knowledge from one member country to another in order to promote intra-OIC cooperation and partnership in recognition that all member countries have comparative advantage in knowledge and expertise in one or more fields that can be tapped by other member countries. In this regard, SESRIC has initiated several capacity development projects and activities in cooperation with various stakeholders, including national, international and OIC institutions. Below are some examples of the ongoing projects conducted by SESRIC in partnership with various stakeholders:
