The European Union launched ADELANTE 2, an innovative Triangular Cooperation Programme with Latin America and the Caribbean, whose key objective is to contribute to achieving the 2030 Agenda by strengthening regional cooperation initiatives.
For the European Union, Triangular Cooperation provides the opportunity to develop an innovative development approach that is consistent with the universal vision of the 2030 Agenda, which fosters partnerships between countries in different stages of development, while coordinating and harnessing different resources and capacities in order to contribute to sustainable development quickly and efficiently in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is why the EU is determined to promote Triangular Cooperation as an implementation mechanism for development cooperation, which is not an end in itself, but an instrument to achieve the SDGs.
In order to approach Triangular Cooperation from different perspectives, ADELANTE 2 is structured around three pillars:
- Operational support, through which the ADELANTE Triangular Cooperation Window European Union - Latin America and the Caribbean (ADELANTE Window) is coordinated.
- Analytical support, which seeks to develop analysis and studies in the field of Triangular Cooperation, in which work will be carried out jointly with the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB).
- Institutional support, which enables the development of bilateral Triangular Cooperation funds with certain countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
