Between 2020 and 2021, Portugal participated in 14 cooperation initiatives, 11 of which corresponded to Regional SSC programs and 3 to Triangular Cooperation projects. Portugal carried out regional and triangular exchanges with most Ibero-American countries, among which those with Argentina and Uruguay stand out.
Through the 11 Regional SSC programs in which it participated, Portugal contributed to strengthen capacities in sectors such as Culture, Strengthening institutions and public policies, Enterprises and Industry. In the framework of the 3 Triangular Cooperation initiatives in which it participated, it supported, together with Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, the strengthening of Mozambique’s knowledge and experience in Agriculture and livestock, Science and technology and Health.
As a result of the efforts made in the framework of this cooperation, Portugal’s Regional SSC and Triangular Cooperation was able to contribute to the region’s progress towards the achievement of SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the goals).
