Between 2020 and 2021, Argentina had 185 cooperation actions, projects and programs under execution. Nearly 51% of this total corresponded to Bilateral SSC initiatives, while the remaining percentage was respectively implemented through Regional SSC (36%) and Triangular Cooperation (13%). In terms of roles, this South-American country combined, almost equally, the provider and recipient role in Bilateral Cooperation, while it mainly acted as first provider in Triangular Cooperation.
As a result of its experience and accumulated knowledge, Argentina strengthened its partners’ capacities in key sectors such as Agriculture and livestock, Legal and judicial development and Human Rights and Transportation and storage while, based on other Ibero-American countries’ expertise, improved its abilities in Strengthening institutions and public policies, Environment, Agriculture and livestock and Education, among others.
Argentina’s neighbor countries – Chile, Uruguay and Brazil – were its main partners in this period and, overall, this country’s cooperation contributed to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, mainly through its alignment with SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth), SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) and SDG 2 (Zero hunger).
