International relations are currently undergoing fundamental changes. The urgency of global challenges is growing, and the achievement of the 2030 Agenda can only be done by joining forces. Here’s where triangular cooperation comes into play: a new form of horizontal partnership where each partner has lessons to share and lessons to learn.
Triangular cooperation refers to development projects that are jointly planned, financed and implemented by
An established donor country
A middle income country
A beneficiary country
Fund for Triangular Cooperation with Asia on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development
An Asian country providing South-South cooperation
A Developing Country
Triangular Cooperation projects aim to provide flexible and contextualized solutions to development challenges in beneficiary countries – while fostering partnerships that deal in practical ways with values, standards and criteria in international cooperation.
