Studies for the generation of knowledge and improvement of TC between Latin America and the Caribbean and the European Union
Studies coordinated by the Ibero-American General Secretariat and the European Union pointed out to the generation of knowledge and the identification of concrete tools that could improve the functioning of Triangular Cooperation related to key fields as SDG’s, cities and Indigenous Peoples.
The step from the Millennium Agenda to the 2030 Agenda was accompanied by important changes in the narrative on which each one of them was built, particularly affecting the very ideas of Development and International Cooperation. Our project analyzes how TC has been transformed or not during the transition period between Development Agendas.
Decentralized South-South and Triangular Cooperation at local level shows a huge diversity of actors and practices. The project seeks to stablish the basis for an accurate conceptualization of horizontal cooperation at the decentralized level and advance to the construction of the guidelines for a new model of Triangular Cooperation on the cities’ framework.
Latin America is the continent with the largest indigenous population around the world, a population with significantly lower levels of socioeconomic development than the rest. Identifying thematic fields, mechanisms and specific tools that allows to develop and promote Triangular Cooperation with and to Indigenous Peoples, respecting the diversity of their visions of development, is one of the goals of our project.
The Innovative Triangular Cooperation for a New Development Agenda project, financed by the EU Regional Facility for Development in Transition, works on building an innovative triangular cooperation model between Ibero-America and the EU, in alignment with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
To this end, a collective construction strategy has been set in motion, based on research and action, as well as on technical and political dialogue. In the two years it has been underway, the project has worked on generating consensus and knowledge and on translating them into specific tools.
