Between 2020 and 2021, Spain had 48 initiatives under execution. Around 54% were developed through Triangular Cooperation projects in which this Ibero-American country acted as second provider, in all cases. The other almost half of the initiatives in which the country participated were Regional SSC programs in which Spain played the role both.
As a result of its efforts as second provider, its Ibero-American partners were able to strengthen their capacities in Environment, Legal and judicial development and Human Rights and Gender, among others. In addition, its participation in a varied set of Ibero-American Programs and Initiatives, as well as in other Regional SSC platforms, allowed Spain to strengthen its capacities in different sectors such as Culture, Strengthening institutions and public policies, Education and Legal and judicial development and Human Rights.
Argentina, Costa Rica and Uruguay stand out as Spain’s main partners. Overall, its cooperation contributed to advance the achievement of SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), SDG 10 (Reduced inequalities) and SDG 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions).
